Description Peter Robinson 2009-06-17 09:25:02 EDT
SPEC: http://pbrobinson.fedorapeople.org/rest.spec
SRPM: http://pbrobinson.fedorapeople.org/rest-0.3-1.fc11.src.rpm

This library was designed to make it easier to access web services that
claim to be "RESTful". A RESTful service should have urls that represent
remote objects, which methods can then be called on. The majority of services
don't actually adhere to this strict definition. Instead, their RESTful end
point usually has an API that is just simpler to use compared to other types
of APIs they may support (XML-RPC, for instance). It is this kind of API that
this library is attempting to support.
Comment 1 Yanko Kaneti 2009-06-17 11:20:12 EDT
After going through the MUST list:

rest.src: W: invalid-license LGPLv2.1

should be License: LGPLv2

Some cosmetic things:

BuildRequires: gtk-doc
is not really necessary , the tarball has that already built.

You can use 
%configure --disable-static
and spare one rm line later.

The source tarball matches upstream, the package builds in rawhide i386 and x86_64 mock.
After the license is is fixed this package looks fit to be APPROVED.
