For record only, Discussions around this package review was started on
https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-electronic-lab/ticket/22. Now it will be carried out here.

FYI, there is somewhat equivalent simulator for 8085 maintained by Fabian Affolter. http://gsim85.sourceforge.net/

I'll do the review and eventually sponsor you.
Comment 5 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-06-06 15:24:08 EDT
#1: can you give me your FAS username please ?
and apply for the packager status at

#2 add %{?_smp_mflags} to your make in the %build section

#3: wrong URL

Correct the URL to:

#4: Preserve timestamps
make INSTALL="install -p" DESTDIR=%{buildroot} install

#5: docs
%doc %{_datadir}/doc/gnusim8085/ should rather be :

%doc  doc/examples/ doc/asm-guide.txt

Add the following line at the end of the %install
rm -rf %{buildroot}%{_docdir}

#6: Summary should be clear: "A 8085 Simulator"

#7: %description missing fullstop.

#8: License is GPL version 2 only : GPLv2
Comment 6 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-06-06 15:27:42 EDT
#9: file doc/gnusim8085.1 should be copied to mandir at the end of the %install section
cp -p doc/gnusim8085.1 %{buildroot}%{_mandir}/man1/%{name}.1

Can I not put this in the %clean section?

I made the suggested changes to the spec file and also some other changes necessary. 

#1 mkdir -p %{buildroot}%{_mandir}/man1 was necessary for building successfully

#2 %{_mandir}/man1/%{name}.1.gz  for packaging the man file

Comment 8 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-06-07 04:50:08 EDT
#1: some typos in the description : stac and microproessor

I think the description should be:

GNUSim8085 is a graphical simulator for Intel 8085
microprocessor assembly language. It has many
features including a keypad which can be used
to write assembly language programs.
It also has stack, memory and port viewers which
can be used for debugging the programs.

#2: directory ownership
in %files

the directory %{_datadir}/pixmaps/gnusim8085/ should be owned by the package.

should be

The package is ready. I have sponsored you.

Update the spec file and SRPM. I'll complete the review.
Comment 9 Rangeen Basu Roy Chowdhury 2009-06-07 10:25:55 EDT
