Package Review

 - = N/A
 x = Check
 ! = Problem
 ? = Not evaluated

 [x] Package is named according to the Package Naming Guidelines.
 [x] Spec file name must match the base package %{name}, in the format %{name}.spec.
 [x] Package meets the Packaging Guidelines.
 [x] Package successfully compiles and builds into binary rpms on at least one supported architecture.
     Tested on: devel/x86_64
 [x] Rpmlint output:
source RPM:
farsight2.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 9, tab: line 15)
=> not a big deal, but would be nice to have this fixed before commit
binary RPM:
farsight2-python.x86_64: W: no-documentation
=> not a problem, docs are in -devel
farsight2-devel: empty
 [x] Package is not relocatable.
 [x] Buildroot is correct (%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n))
 [x] Package is licensed with an open-source compatible license and meets other legal requirements as defined in the legal section of Packaging Guidelines.
 [x] License field in the package spec file matches the actual license.
     License type:LGPLv2+
 [x] If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the license(s) in its own file, then that file, containing the text of the license(s) for the package is included in %doc.
 [x] Spec file is legible and written in American English.
 [x] Sources used to build the package match the upstream source, as provided in the spec URL.

=== Issues ===
1. cosmetic problems with the source rpm:
- Duplicate BuildRequires: glib2-devel (by gstreamer-devel)
- farsight2.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 9, tab: line 15)
2. adding INSTALL="install -p" to the make install line will preserve the timestamps of the docs; I've verified that in a local mock build, you get for instance:
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root             2320 Dec 12 00:35 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/farsight2-plugins-0.10/pt02.html
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root              472 Dec 12 00:35 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/farsight2-plugins-0.10/right.png
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root             2331 Dec 12 00:35 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/farsight2-plugins-0.10/style.css
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root              406 Dec 12 00:35 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/farsight2-plugins-0.10/up.png
instead of:
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root             2320 Dec 30 20:26 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/farsight2-plugins-0.10/pt02.html
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root              472 Dec 30 20:26 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/farsight2-plugins-0.10/right.png
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root             2331 Dec 30 20:26 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/farsight2-plugins-0.10/style.css
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root              406 Dec 30 20:26 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/farsight2-plugins-0.10/up.png
