Description Peter Robinson 2009-11-18 16:27:11 UTC
SPEC: http://pbrobinson.fedorapeople.org/libmx.spec
SRPM: http://pbrobinson.fedorapeople.org/libmx-0.1.1-1.fc12.src.rpm

The Moblin User Experience is a GUI toolkit, using Clutter and 
is optimised for Moblin. It consists of various classes useful 
for building UIs such as Buttons, Tooltips, Scrollbars and 
others. It also supports styling through CSS stylesheets.

NOTE: the upstream name for this package is mx but there is a conflicting python package called mx already.

Comment 1 Peter Robinson 2009-11-19 12:21:23 UTC
New upstream
SRPM: http://pbrobinson.fedorapeople.org/libmx-0.1.2-1.fc12.src.rpm

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2009-12-17 17:37:56 UTC
Given the existence of the mx/mx-devel packages, a little more description in the -devel packages might help

Comment 5 Till Maas 2009-12-17 17:42:48 UTC
There is also another project called mx/libmx which seems to be older and still be maintained: http://www.lostsidedead.com/mx/

I suggest to use moblin-mx to avoid potential future conflicts, but this might be worth discussion on fedora-devel.

Comment 6 Orcan Ogetbil 2009-12-17 18:29:18 UTC
just had a quick look:
* I think that %{_datadir}/gtk-doc/html/mx needs to be tagged with %doc. 
* Also please span the description to 80 columns as much as possible. 
* Source0 seems wrong.

I'm going to shortly improve all the descriptions. It looks like the gnome-shell people are going to be making use of this so I want to remove all mention of Moblin in the description as it looks like its going to be used in gnome-shell (this library will replace nbtk for Moblin 2.2) and gnome-shell pulls in a chunk of nbtk.

> just had a quick look:

I have been told that gtk-doc will automatically get tagged as docs due to the %{_datadir}/gtk-doc dir being tagged as %doc.

> * Also please span the description to 80 columns as much as possible. 

Will update when I update the description

> * Source0 seems wrong.  

In the rush I didn't update the URL. Will fix.

I'm going to take a look at this one.
