Description Tareq Al Jurf 2009-10-09 07:20:49 EDT
Spec URL: http://taljurf.fedorapeople.org/Packages/i586/invulgotracker/invulgotracker.spec
SRPM URL: http://taljurf.fedorapeople.org/Packages/i586/invulgotracker/invulgotracker-0.53-1.fc11.src.rpm

Hi, I made this package and i hope to add it to the upcoming Fedora 12 repository.

Simple application to track time usage on your tasks & projects.
Comment 1 Martin Gieseking 2009-10-10 05:31:24 EDT
Some initial comments:

- according to the source file headers, the license is GPLv3+

- The files src/util.* are licensed under GPLv2+. You should ask upstream if this is intended.

- in Source0, give a full URL to the source tarball

- remove the final dot in Summary

- append CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS" CPPFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS" to %configure in order to get the debuginfo package build correctly

- use macros in the %files section and add the doc files properly

- drop INSTALL and the empty files from %doc

- drop the locale file from %files

- see the packaging guidelines how to install the .desktop file  (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Desktop_files)

Comment 2 Jan Klepek 2009-10-12 06:00:24 EDT
I can't find your FAS username in Fedora Packager CVS Commit Group (packager), did you joined this group? Who is your sponsor?

If this is your first package, I really suggest you read
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers, follow
the instructions there.

I have set FE-NEEDSPONSOR, if you are member of Fedora Packager CVS Commit Group (packager), please provide your username in that group
Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2009-10-14 11:34:29 EDT
Tarey is not yet in the packager group, but I'm going to sponsor him. He still needs to learn a lot, but he already did very well during the last two weeks, so I'm confident of him being a good packager soon.
Comment 4 Tareq Al Jurf 2009-11-23 02:58:08 EST
Spec URL:


These are the final ones. For F13.
And I've applied to Fedora Packager CVS Commit Group.

Simple application to track time usage on your tasks & projects.

For more info, see 

/usr/share/icons/InvulgoTracker.png should be
There should be no icons in the toplevel folder /usr/share/icons. Please patch Makefile to do this.

InvulgoTracker.desktop is very sparse. Please add "ProjectManagement" as additional category to allow nested menus. You can do this if you use desktop-file-install instead of desktop-file-validate as decribed in 

BTW: The icon tag in the desktop file is "InvulgoTracker.png", but should be InvulgoTracker. This is is why you see a warning from desktop-file-validate during build:
desktop-file-validate /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/invulgotracker-0.53.1-1.fc13.i386/usr/share/applications/InvulgoTracker.desktop
/builddir/build/BUILDROOT/invulgotracker-0.53.1-1.fc13.i386/usr/share/applications/InvulgoTracker.desktop: warning: value "InvulgoTracker.png" for key "Icon" in group "Desktop Entry" is an icon name with an extension, but there should be no extension as described in the Icon Theme Specification if the value is not an absolute path
For the background see 
and for a fix

From a formal point of view your package is already good as is, but please fix the remaining issues.
Comment 6 Christoph Wickert 2009-11-24 05:45:49 EST
One last thing: If you do
rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/%{_docdir}
you can drop
from configure. It's up to you to ether use 
 --docdir=%{_docdir}/%{name}-%{version} and %exclude the files you don't want or use %doc to install them. But please don't mix both to keep the spec simple.
Comment 7 Christoph Wickert 2009-11-24 05:49:46 EST
One more thing. :)
You have deleted the first %changelog entry. Please don't do this, 0.53.1-1 is not the "initial build", 0.53-1 was. In the future, make sure to list all changes in the changelog.
Comment 9 Christoph Wickert 2009-11-29 06:51:52 EST
Your versioning is wrong: The package should now be 0.53.1-2

First version was 0.53-1. Then upsteam made a new release to fix the docdir problem. This was 0.51.1, so your second package was 0.53.1-1. Then you fixed some issues in 0.53.1-2 and now you fixed the icon thing, so you should be at 0.35.1-3. Please change this before I can approve the package.
Comment 11 Christoph Wickert 2009-11-30 19:43:55 EST
The patch is not yet working:

-    strcat(filename, "/icons/InvulgoTracker.png");
+    strcat(filename, "/icons/InvulgoTracker.");

This needs to be "/pixmaps/InvulgoTracker.png" both times. I guess you have confused this with the desktop file.
Comment 13 Christoph Wickert 2009-12-17 16:52:38 EST
The package itself looks fine and fixes all problems, but there is a trival rpmlint warning that you should fix:

$ rpmlint /var/lib/mock/fedora-rawhide-x86_64/result/invulgotracker-*
invulgotracker.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 1, tab: line 10)
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 1 warnings.

Make sure to use spaces in line 10 too. And the changelog format is not quite right: Instead of 
*Thu Dec 03 2009
it should be
* Thu Dec 03 2009

Note the whitespace before the date. You can fix this when updating to 0.61 which was just released.
Comment 15 Christoph Wickert 2009-12-18 05:21:24 EST
The rpmlint warning still remains:
$ rpmlint Desktop/invulgotracker-0.61-1.fc13.src.rpm 
invulgotracker.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 1, tab: line 10)
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 1 warnings.

But this is trivial, you can change it later. The package is APPROVED.
