      installing the package.
    + To preserve timestamps you could consider using:
      make install INSTALL="%{__install} -p" DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT
    + The upstream tarball contains an online manual page: doc/moe.1. You
      might consider shipping it. If you do so, then please use 'install -p'
      to install it so that the timestamps are preserved.
    + It is a good idea not to explicitly specify the extension added by the
      compression scheme to the info and manual pages. Using a wildcard will
      let the package build if no compression is used or the extension is

Comment 4 Debarshi Ray 2008-09-15 00:05:50 EDT
You could have used %{name} in the following line since you have used it so frequently elsewhere:
"%{__install} -p -m 644 ./doc/moe.1 $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_mandir}/man1/"

| This package is APPROVED by me. |
