Description Nicoleau Fabien 2008-06-09 18:50:31 EDT
Spec URL:
Itaka is an on-demand screen capture server featuring a polished and easy to use interface with a robust backend HTTP server.
The concept is : a request to your computer by a user displays an image of your screen in the user's web browser. 

rpmlint output :
[builder@FEDOBOX tmp]$ rpmlint -i itaka-0.2-1.fc9.noarch.rpm 
[builder@FEDOBOX tmp]$ rpmlint -i itaka-0.2-1.fc9.src.rpm 
[builder@FEDOBOX tmp]

src.rpm build under mock is OK.

It's not my first package but I'm seeking a sponsor.

Comment 3 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2008-08-11 19:06:41 EDT
1/ There is no need for Requires: python >= 2.3 as package already have 
Requires: python(abi) = 2.5

2/ gzip -9 -c share/itaka.1 > share/itaka.1.gz at install step.
This is usually unneeded, rpm takes care of compression at /usr/lib/rpm/redhat/brp-compress step.
It seems that the compression option can be different. (it will use gzip -9 -n)
It shouldn't have any problem unless we choose a different compression method for all man pages later..

*/timestamps and md5sum are the same from source files and packages

Comment 5 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2008-08-12 11:32:58 EDT
[root@kwizatz include]# desktop-file-validate /usr/share/applications/itaka.desktop
/usr/share/applications/itaka.desktop: warning: key "Encoding" in group "Desktop Entry" is deprecated 
/usr/share/applications/itaka.desktop: warning: value "GNOME;Application;Network;" for key "Categories" in group "Desktop Entry" contains a deprecated value "Application"

You can fix this by either 
- patching the .desktop file (this will fix both warnings)
- using --remove-category="Application" at the desktop-file-install step 

The best would be to send the patch upstream along with the modifications needed for an accurate python directory detection.

Please add this little fix before import.


This package (itaka) is APPROVED 

Comment 6 Nicoleau Fabien 2008-08-12 13:41:21 EDT
Thanks for the review.
I'll update spec file for desktop file using these commands :
sed -i -e "s/Icon=%{name}.png/Icon=%{name}/"  share/%{name}.desktop
sed -i -e "/Encoding=UTF-8/d" share/%{name}.desktop 
and -remove-category="Application" for desktop file install.

I'll also contact upstream to send him the modifications.
