Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-07-05 19:21:21 UTC
Spec URL: http://salimma.fedorapeople.org/for_review/gnome/tweet.spec
SRPM URL: http://salimma.fedorapeople.org/for_review/gnome/tweet-0.3.0-0.git20080704.1.fc9.src.rpm
Tweet is a simple desktop client for the Twitter messaging
service. Tweet is written in C using GNOME platform libraries like:

    * GLib
    * GTK+
    * LibSoup

and other GNOME-related libraries like:

    * JSON-GLib
    * Clutter

Tweet uses Clutter as an hardware accelerated canvas for parts of its
user interface; this requires a working OpenGL implementation.

Note: currently needs clutter-gtk-devel=0.6.1 from Rawhide, so you'd need to pull it from the Rawhide repo. There's a repaint bug on Intel hardware if compositing is enabled (Metacity w/compositing, Compiz or kwin with desktop effects), according to upstream it's an Intel driver issue.

Package is split into tweet, twitter-glib and twitter-glib-devel, the latter two are designed to be usable from other programs.

Comment 1 Brian Pepple 2008-07-05 19:31:41 UTC
This shouldn't go into Fedora yet, since upstream is reluctant to see it in
distos while it's still in alpha release.

From upstream: '@luca: thanks for the package; I’m not entirely confident in
having Tweet in the NEW queue - not until it hits a beta stage, after GUADEC
when it’ll depend on Clutter 0.8 and friends.'

Easy enough to remove it from the queue; just clear the whiteboard when it's ready.

Comment 3 Brian Pepple 2009-02-14 14:35:20 UTC
It looks like Emmanuele stopped developing Tweet, but he did remove twitter-glib from the project and he just did a release (0.9.2)  of that 2 days ago that would probably be worthwhile to add to Fedora if your interested.


Comment 4 Jan Klepek 2009-10-12 10:09:16 UTC
any progress on this package? 
SPEC/SRPM is not available on provided links.

I think that this could be considered as stalled review and closed if there is no progress or plans for working on tweet package.

Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2010-01-26 00:10:19 UTC
This has been NotReady for more than half a year now, and there's been no response to commentary in 3.5 months.  I'm closing this out.
