please fix

1 - BuildRoot  

-> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#BuildRoot

2- BuildRequires
-> every fedora linux have kernel installed by default, doesn't  need kernel in build requires, you need only kernel-devel.

3- install section

please simplify things using install -Dp -m so you reduce the size of your spec file.


Comment 2 Itamar Reis Peixoto 2009-05-25 23:49:25 UTC
after you fix these things, please post here the new spec file and a koji scratch build, this will speed up the review process.

Comment 4 Fabian Deutsch 2009-07-28 15:22:00 UTC
AFAIK Cisco is holding some patents on VRRP, so can this be part of Fedora anyway?
CARP is a patent free solution.

Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2009-08-01 19:21:41 UTC
If you have legal questions you should make the ticket block FE-Legal so that the folks who understand such things can take a look.  I'll do that now.
