Comment 1 Jochen Schmitt 2008-04-29 14:26:39 EDT
Some review checks:

+ rpmlint of source package ok.
+ Local buid works fine.
+ Copyright ok

- I think the whole documentatioon should put into %{_docdir]/GMT
- What is the task of the all subpackage which doesn't contain any files.

Possibly.  The GMT install script would make the following subdirs:


I could see tutorial going in doc/tutorial.  As for html, can web servers serve
content out of /usr/share?

%package        all
Summary:        All documentation for GMT
Group:          Applications/Engineering
Requires:       %{name} = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:       %{name}-pdf = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:       %{name}-html = %{version}-%{release}
Requires:       %{name}-tutorial = %{version}-%{release}

to bring in all doc packages in one shot.

Comment 3 Patrice Dumas 2008-04-29 18:25:29 EDT
I think that it would be better to call the package GMT-doc for
consistency with most of the other packages. Also the Group should
Group:  Documentation

I think that all the docs should be in only one package.

The html docs should not be installed to be served by a web server but 
for local browsing.

Also I think that it would be better if the docs were installed in

One think which is not completely clear to me is whether this 
package should depend on GMT or not. This is not so clear to me.
Are the examples used in the tutorial or the doc? If so it could depend
on GMT-examples.
Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2008-05-07 11:18:32 EDT
How about this one:

Spec URL: http://www.cora.nwra.com/~orion/fedora/GMT-docs
SRPM URL: http://www.cora.nwra.com/~orion/fedora/GMT-docs-4.3.0-1.src.rpm

* Tue Apr 6 2008 Orion Poplawski <orion@cora.nwra.com> 4.3.0-1
- Update to 4.3.0
- Make single package

Technically, GMT owns %{_docdir}/GMT-%{version}/, so it should require GMT,
though perhaps not a big deal.
Comment 5 Patrice Dumas 2008-05-12 06:45:59 EDT
I suggest calling the package GMT-doc and not GMT-docs to be
more consistent with the guidelines and most of the packages.

Also the requires for GMT should be
Requires:       GMT = %{version}
since the release are not correlated.

Otherwise looks good.
Comment 6 Orion Poplawski 2008-05-12 12:00:33 EDT
* Mon Apr 12 2008 Orion Poplawski <orion@cora.nwra.com> 4.3.0-2
- Rename to GMT-doc
- Require only GMT-%%{version}, drop release
