Description Antti Andreimann 2009-09-14 14:16:09 UTC
Spec URL: http://anttix.org/fedora/pkg/mingw32-xerces-c.spec
SRPM URL: http://anttix.org/fedora/pkg/mingw32-xerces-c-3.0.1-1.fc12.src.rpm
Xerces-C is a validating XML parser written in a portable subset of
C++. Xerces-C makes it easy to give your application the ability to
read and write XML data. A shared library is provided for parsing,
generating, manipulating, and validating XML documents. Xerces-C is
faithful to the XML 1.0 recommendation and associated standards (DOM
1.0, DOM 2.0. SAX 1.0, SAX 2.0, Namespaces).

Koji build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1677082

This package is for the MinGW32 build system and should conform to those guidlines:

It is based on a later version of xerces-c libraries than the current one present in Fedora. Version 3.x is a LOT easier to cross-compile making the SPEC much cleaner and simpler.

Fedora review mingw32-xerces-c-3.0.1-1.fc12.src.rpm 2009-11-24

! needs attention

3 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 1 errors, 4 warnings.

All these rpmlint warnings are harmless and can be ignored. The debuginfo-without-sources doesn't mean that anything is wrong with this package, but rather that mingw32 debug package generator doesn't put sources in the package.
