Comment 1 Fabian Affolter 2008-12-10 11:54:29 EST
There is already an open review request for pidgin-musictracker.


But it seems that the original reporter is no longer interested to maintain this package.

Comment 3 manuel wolfshant 2008-12-10 12:05:45 EST
Hosting on rapidshare.com is not really the best idea.
I'd say (based on the COPYING file, which is referenced by the README file, source files do not include any license info ) that license should be GPLv2+
You should not build and package the static libraries and libtool archives. IF they are needed, separate packages should be used.

And note that this program has already been submitted as  #469080

Comment 11 Fabian Affolter 2008-12-11 02:51:35 EST
Julio, let's wait some days for an answer from Jon, OK?  This is your first package and you are seeking a sponsor.  In the meantime you can submit other review requests for packages or even better make some informal review of other packages by yourself. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ReviewGuidelines
Comment 12 Fabian Affolter 2008-12-17 03:20:56 EST
There is no answer from the reporter of the other pidgin-musictracker review request so far. 


I will close the other review request.
Comment 13 Fabian Affolter 2008-12-17 03:40:06 EST
Some comments on your spec file

- License: GPLv2
  What's is about the copyright in the NEWS file?

- 'Source0: http://pidgin-musictracker.googlecode.com/files/pidgin-musictracker-0.4.4.tar.bz2'
 can be 'http://pidgin-musictracker.googlecode.com/files/musictracker-%{version}.tar.bz2' no worries about the version in the future to get the source

- No 'BuildRequires' ? I think that this didn't work in mock. 

- This is a pidgin plugin but Pidgin is not a requirement?       

- 'make install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT' better use 'make DESTDIR=%{buildroot} INSTALL="install -p" install' to preserves the files' timestamps.

  The file THANKS is missing

- For your file section, take a lot at 

- Your %changelog don't match the guidelines
