Description Mamoru TASAKA 2008-05-01 22:20:58 EDT
Spec URL: http://mtasaka.fedorapeople.org/Review_request/cairo-dock/cairo-dock.spec
SRPM URL: http://mtasaka.fedorapeople.org/Review_request/cairo-dock/cairo-dock-
An light eye-candy fully themable animated dock for any 
Linux desktop. It has a family-likeness with OSX dock,
but with more options.

Koji scratch build:
for dist-f9-updates-candidate:
for dist-f8-updates-candidate:

cairo-dock-devel.i386: W: no-documentation
cairo-dock-plug-ins.i386: W: no-documentation
cairo-dock-plug-ins.i386: E: script-without-shebang /usr/lib/cairo-dock/plug-in/netspeed/netspeed
cairo-dock-plug-ins-xfce.i386: W: no-documentation
cairo-dock-themes.i386: W: no-documentation
IMO all of these are ignorable.

Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2008-05-15 16:33:28 EDT
Full review done, summary: Approved!

Long story, my thats one not so pretty package. I don't say I could do it better
though, its just that what upstream delivers is a big mess.

I strongly urge you to contact upstream and to ask them to clean things up, fix
the issues which make you now require todo an autoreconf, maybe release atleast
the -themes package in a seperate tarbal, stop the ugly version and date in
tarbal name stuff, etc.

Comment 6 Mamoru TASAKA 2008-05-15 20:45:16 EDT
Yes, I will contact with upstream because actually there are lots
of things which must be cleaned up (including license issue of
mail/ plugin...)

Thanks for your review!

Ok we both got the version wrong ( it's a fast moving target )
If you are build svn builds you are building the development version i.e 1.5.6-beta2

Try looking in about in the cairo-dock meneu as this will give it's true version 

or from commandline

[root@localhost leigh]# cairo-dock --version
[root@localhost leigh]#

I already know from which file this version comes 
(actually cairo-dock/configure.ac).
- Upstream seems to be saying that all 1.5.5.x version is pre-releases
  for 1.5.6, i.e. development version toward 1.5.6
- In configure.ac, actually version was set as -> 1.5.6-XXX >-> -> 1.5.6-beta2. So it is highly possible
  that upstream releases or so.
- Also "1.5.6 beta2" is ambiguous as several svn trunk  seems to have
  been tagged as beta2

So using 1.5.6 as version is very dangerous as it may cause
to introduce epoch. Also for versioning please refer to

So what are you going to name it then ?
If it was me , I would probably name it

This will cause a problem when upstream releases
