SRPM URL: http://rakesh.fedorapeople.org/srpm/flickcurl-1.10-1.fc10.src.rpm


Flickcurl is a C library for the Flickr API, handling creating the
requests, signing, token management, calling the API, marshalling
request parameters and decoding responses. It uses libcurl to call the
REST web service and libxml2 to manipulate the XML
responses. Flickcurl supports 100% of the 2009-04-04 version of the
API (see Flickcurl API coverage) including the functions for
photo/video uploading, browsing, searching, adding and editing
comments, groups, notes, photosets, categories, activity, blogs,
favorites, places, tags, machine tags, institutions, pandas and
photo/video metadata. It also includes a program flickrdf to turn
photo metadata, tags, machine tags and places into an RDF triples

+ rpmlint is silent:

[petro@Sulaco Desktop]$ rpmlint flickcurl-
flickcurl-1.10-2.fc11.ppc.rpm            flickcurl-1.10-2.fc11.src.rpm            flickcurl-debuginfo-1.10-2.fc11.ppc.rpm  flickcurl-devel-1.10-2.fc11.ppc.rpm      
[petro@Sulaco Desktop]$ rpmlint flickcurl-*
4 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
[petro@Sulaco Desktop]$

+ The package is named according to the Package Naming Guidelines.
+ The spec file name matches the base package %{name}, in the format %{name}.spec
+/- The package meets the Packaging Guidelines, except one issue with owning directories - see below.
+ The package is licensed with a Fedora approved license and meets the Licensing Guidelines.
+ The License field in the package spec file matches the actual license.
+ The file, containing the text of the license(s) for the package, is included in %doc.
+ The spec file is written in American English.
+ The spec file for the package is legible.
+ The sources used to build the package matches the upstream source:

[petro@Sulaco SOURCES]$ md5sum flickcurl-1.10.tar.gz*
9d952990fd13a8beebbffe58061bbd0f  flickcurl-1.10.tar.gz
9d952990fd13a8beebbffe58061bbd0f  flickcurl-1.10.tar.gz.1
[petro@Sulaco SOURCES]$ 

+ The package successfully compiles and builds into binary rpms:


+ All build dependencies are listed in BuildRequires.
+ The package calls ldconfig in %post and %postun.
+ The package owns all directories that it creates.
+ The packages must not own files or directories already owned by other packages. So, I advice you to make the following change in "%files devel" section:

- {_datadir}/gtk-doc/html
+ {_datadir}/gtk-doc/html/*

+ The package does not list a file more than once in the spec file's %files listings. 
+ Permissions on files are set properly.
+ The package has a %clean section, which contains rm -rf %{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).
+ The package consistently uses macros.
+ The package contains code, or permissable content.
+ No extremely large documentation files
+ Everything, the package includes as %doc, does not affect the runtime of the application.
+ Header files are be in a -devel package.
+ No static libraries.

- The sub-package containing pkgconfig(.pc) files must 'Requires: pkgconfig' (for directory ownership and usability). Yes, I know, that this made autimatically with modern rpm versions, but 

a) this rule still exists, 
b) and someone may try to rebuild your spec on systems with older rpm (EPEL, for example)

+ The library files that end in .so (without suffix) are in a -devel package.
+ devel packages requires the base package using a fully versioned dependency: Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}
+ The packages does NOT contain any .la libtool archives
+ Not a GUI application
+ At the beginning of %install, the package runs rm -rf %{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).
+ All filenames in rpm packages are valid UTF-8.


* Please change "%files devel" section in order not to own entire {_datadir}/gtk-doc/html
* Add BR pkgconfig to devel sub-package
