Description Yaakov Nemoy 2008-06-17 10:01:27 UTC
SPEC File: http://ynemoy.fedorapeople.org/repo/window-picker-applet.spec
SRPM File:

window-picker-applet is an applet for the Gnome Panel that provides an alternate
window chooser for small screens.  It displays a small single icon button for
each window and combines a title button for the currently active window.

Created attachment 309634 [details]
spec file cleanup

Attached is an initial patch to cleanup the spec file somewhat. With this the
srpm created passes rpmlint. It probably needs some extra build reqs. You also
need to change the name/email in the Changelog entry.

I think there possibly should also be some post install gconf stuff too but
need to check that out further. Someone in the know should be able to confirm

Comment 2 Jonathan Roberts 2008-09-18 16:37:38 UTC
Updated the spec file to make it comply with packaging guidelines better, as
well as renamed to remove Ubuntu from the name. 

SPEC File: http://ynemoy.fedorapeople.org/repo/window-picker-applet.spec
SRPM File:

Have spoken with Yaakov, and will likely co-maintain these packages.

Comment 3 Tim Lauridsen 2008-09-19 14:03:58 UTC
I will review this one:

Initial comments:

Requires and BuildRequires are missing

and maybe others

URL should point to upstream home page not to source

URL should be
Source0: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/14942872/window-picker-applet_%(version).tar.gz

Comment 4 Tim Lauridsen 2008-09-19 14:09:02 UTC
forgot the URL
is the closest to and upstream homepage.

and Source0 shall point to 

Comment 5 Jonathan Roberts 2008-09-19 15:16:18 UTC
I've spoken to upstream and new source tarballs are due out next week, so I'll hold on making these fixes and changing the source details until then. They've also committed to making more regular releases that will be better to use.

Comment 6 Tim Lauridsen 2008-09-20 15:26:29 UTC
Sounds good, maybe you should talk to upstream about making the source tarballs
more standard windows-picker-applet-%{version}.tar.gz, instead of _%{version}.
in ume-launcer it is even more needed the fix the tarball to

Comment 7 Jonathan Roberts 2008-09-20 22:42:06 UTC
Have done so already :) They said that with the current speed of development, they're really pushed for time and not always able to do make dist for every release and update configure.ac. They have said though that they'll endeavour to make more releases in the future, now that they know others are using their code.

Comment 8 Christoph Wickert 2008-10-24 14:31:54 UTC
Just like in bug #451768 I suggest to rename this package to gnome-applet-window-picker (with a "Provides: window-picker-applet"). See

Comment 10 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-14 07:20:56 UTC
Yaakov, are you still interested in packaging this? I've been running my own window-picker-applet for a while, I can take over the packaging if you want. Desperately need the extra vertical pixels that w-p-a + maximus gives :)

Comment 11 Yaakov Nemoy 2009-09-14 11:50:07 UTC
Feel free to take this over, i have no interest in this package, since i don't use Gnome anymore.

Comment 12 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-14 21:51:31 UTC
Thanks; I just filed the review request.

Tim, would you like to continue with the review? I addressed your concern with package naming. And the 0.5 series is much more visually attractive too.
