Description Rakesh Pandit 2008-07-14 03:17:23 UTC
Laconica is an open source microblogging tool written in PHP. All data
is stored in a MySQL database. Laconica was created as a direct
response of a need to create an open source, distributed alternative
to Twitter. Laconica implements the OpenMicroBlogging standard.

SRPM: http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/srpm/php-laconica-0.4.1-1.fc8.src.rpm
SPEC: http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/spec/php-laconica.spec

This is my 8th package and I am looking for sponsor

Additional info:
This review depends upon three bugs:

laconica development is going in leaps and the current used 
is 0.4.3. But when this bug was filed it was still to be
tested and it also used xmpphp svn checkout which is not 
released yet.

Comment 1 Rakesh Pandit 2008-07-14 03:22:15 UTC
As soon as 0.4.3 is tested and php-xmpphp next stable released I will update. 
May be few more days.

Comment 2 Rakesh Pandit 2008-08-10 08:37:49 UTC
This need an update.

I will wait till these two dependent package reviews are done:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=455039 php-oauth
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=454395 php-xmpphp

Comment 3 Rakesh Pandit 2008-08-23 14:55:34 UTC
Will update shortly. This needs some more work.

Both php-oauth and php-xmpphp are APPROVED

Comment 4 Peter Lemenkov 2008-08-29 06:17:51 UTC
I'll revew it

Comment 5 Rakesh Pandit 2008-08-29 06:34:29 UTC

Please hold on for some time.
Thanks -- it needs an update badly -- I will post update ASAP.

Comment 7 Peter Lemenkov 2008-09-27 17:39:35 UTC
Still here. Sorry for the delay - I was at my vacation.

Comment 8 Peter Lemenkov 2008-09-27 18:49:40 UTC

* use cp -a for copying (to preserve timestamps)
* no need to mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
* I didn't understand a trick with %docdir. Why not to simply add the next line in %files section?

%doc COPYING doc/*

Other things looks sane.

Comment 9 Rakesh Pandit 2008-09-29 10:02:00 UTC
yes, I agree on all. Will update ...

Few remarks:

* Please, remove the rest of %{docdir} stuff (see attached patch)
* Consider adding additional "Provides: laconica" for those who wants to install it by simply typing "sudo yum install laconica". That's just my personal wish and not a blocker.

And this package is
