Comment 1 Petr Sklenar 2009-01-27 08:06:16 EST
Hello, this is my second package, I am seeking sponsor like at bug 481272

There is GNU/FDL licence in separate file /usr/share/doc/stardict-english-czech-20081201/README

Should I rename it to 'LICENSE' or is it OK? Original author has this name of file for licence.

I made mistake for URL in first comment, this is right URL: 
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/psklenar/stardict-english-czech.spec

Czech dictionaries for StarDict.
Comment 2 manuel wolfshant 2009-01-27 08:13:36 EST
No, it is not necessary to rename the files from the source (unless there is a very good reason, for instance in order to avoid a conflict with another package)
Comment 3 Lubomir Rintel 2009-01-28 08:29:02 EST
Taking this.

I could sponsor you, but I can't find any reviews you've participated in. Would you mind pointing me to some, so I can be sure about your packaging abilities? In case you haven't done so, I recommend picking up a couple of review requests and doing preliminary reviews. Thanks!
Comment 4 Petr Sklenar 2009-01-28 08:44:51 EST
I started with fedora packaging these time so I haven't done any pre-review, but I would like.

Please can you recommend me some review to do preliminary review.
Comment 5 manuel wolfshant 2009-01-28 08:51:05 EST
Petr, you could start for instance with https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=480860 which is an easy one.
Comment 6 Petr Sklenar 2009-01-28 09:01:48 EST
re Comment #5:
OK, thanks much
Comment 7 Lubomir Rintel 2009-01-28 09:11:01 EST
Here's the review queue:


You are probably looking for bugs in NEW state, assigned to (Nobody).
By skimming through the list I've managed to find one package for which the review did not start at all yet: python-argparse (bug #462505)

You may want to help your colleagues with Merge reviews as well ;)
Comment 8 Petr Sklenar 2009-01-29 09:56:18 EST
I made informal review at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=480860#c4

I like it. I'd still like to se at least a couple more, this one was pretty easy :)

A review of this package:

1.) Package name.

To be consistent with other existing practice applied to other stardict dictionary packages I suggest you rename the package to "stardict-dic-cs" or "stardict-dic-cs_CZ".

You may still want to add a Provides: for the upstream name.

2.) Package version.

%define dicdate 20081201
Version: 1.0.0
Source0: ftp://dl.cihar.com/slovnik/stable/stardict-english-czech-%{dicdate}.tar.gz

Is 1.0.0 made up? Why not use 20081201 as version?

3.) URL tag.

URL: ftp://dl.cihar.com/slovnik/stable/stardict-english-czech-%{dicdate}.tar.gz

Purpose of the URL tag is to address the package's home page, with general information about it -- it definitely should not be the same as Source tag.

4.) BuildArchitectures tag.

This is fairly minor, but: it is commonly spelled "BuildArch:"

5.) Setup

%setup -c -T -n %{name}-%{version}
%setup -q -n %{name}-%{version} -D -T -a 0

This could be written as:

%setup -q -c -n %{name}-%{version}

6.) No need to rename the README file

install -p -m 0644 %{name}-%{dicdate}/README LICENSE

Especially when it does not contain the license text.

7.) Your %description is not informative

Description is not meant to contain information about history of the package or its build process, but rather contents of the package. The latter URL belongs to the Url: tag and rest should be replaced with something like:

"Czech-English and English-Czech translation dictionaries for StarDict, a GUI-based dictionary software."

8.) Group.

I guess Applications/Text would be a far better pick than Applications/System.
