Description Mary Ellen Foster 2009-11-02 18:00:46 UTC
Spec URL: http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/~mef3/review/hessian.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/~mef3/review/hessian-4.0.1-1.fc12.src.rpm
The Hessian binary web service protocol makes web 
services usable without requiring a large framework, 
and without learning yet another alphabet soup of 
protocols. Because it is a binary protocol, it is 
well-suited to sending binary data without any need 
to extend the protocol with attachments.

I don't know if you're still interested in submitting this, but there are some issues with the spec that need fixing, and it's a bit behind the current guidelines.  Honestly I'd just rewrite the thing and dump the annoying jpackage license junk, but that's up to you.

If you insist on using the "%{__mkdir}" forms instead of just using "mkdir" and such, you need to do it consistently, so use "%{__sed}" as well.  Or just drop them and save the typing.

You should not use the versioned javadoc stuff.

Modern Fedora doesn't need BuildRoot:, %clean or the first line of %install.

The current upstream version seems to be 4.0.7.
