Spec URL: http://ivazquez.fedorapeople.org/packages/gtk2-parasite/gtk2-parasite.spec
SRPM URL: http://ivazquez.fedorapeople.org/packages/gtk2-parasite/gtk2-parasite-0-0.1.gitf485897d.src.rpm
Description: Parasite is a debugging and development tool that runs inside your GTK+ application's process. It can inspect your application, giving you detailed information on your UI, such as the hierarchy, X window IDs, widget properties, and more. You can modify properties on the fly in order to experiment with the look of your UI.
Parasite includes an embedded Python shell that lets you write new code that directly interacts with your application's UI, regardless of the language the application is written in. Create new dialogs, attach temporary signal handlers to buttons, test out new logic, and gather additional debug information.

OK rpmlint is silent.
OK final provides and requires look sane.
N/A %check is present and all tests pass.
OK no shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
OK owns the directories it creates.
OK doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
OK no duplicates in %files.
OK file permissions are appropriate.
OK no scriptlets present.

- package name should reflect upstream name, eg. gtkparasite is appropriate package name here (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines#General_Naming)
- snapshot packages should include date in the release tag (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines#Snapshot_packages)
- license information is completely missing in the sources files and even GPL is symlinked from autotools, but the license tag says it should MIT as written only on the web page
- the empty run of configure should be dropped from the autogen.sh
All issues are fixed, package is APPROVED.
