Description Mark Chappell 2010-02-24 17:10:47 UTC
Spec URL: http://tremble.fedorapeople.org/packages/normaliz.spec
SRPM URL: http://tremble.fedorapeople.org/packages/normaliz-2.2-1.fc12.src.rpm
Normaliz is a (command line) tool for computations in affine
monoids, vector configurations, lattice polytopes,  and rational

Comment 1 Terje Røsten 2010-02-25 10:01:58 UTC
Seems mostly ok, could you add a reference to the PDF documentation in description
and move the examples to a subdir in doc?

Comment 2 Terje Røsten 2010-02-25 10:07:40 UTC
You are mixing $RPM_FOO and %{foo} style macros, use

%{optflags} and %{buildroot}


(same issue in 4ti2, btw)

How would you recommend referencing it?

Comment 4 Mark Chappell 2010-02-25 11:19:27 UTC
SRPM URL: http://tremble.fedorapeople.org/packages/normaliz-2.2-2.fc12.src.rpm

* examples moved into example subdirectory
* switched from $RPM_BUILD_ROOT to %{buildroot}
* description now includes a reference to Normaliz2.2Documentation.pdf

This does however now result in an rpmlint warning
normaliz.x86_64: W: macro-in-%description %{docdir}

Some small issues fixed and this will get approved:

- in %install swap the two first lines:

pushd source
rm -rf %{buildroot}


rm -rf %{buildroot}
pushd source

- change last paragraph in desc to e.g.

Documentation and examples can be found in %{_docdir}/%{name}-%{version}, 
in particular you may find Normaliz%{version}Documentation.pdf useful.  
An example configuration file normaliz.cfg is also included.

- consider to use dos2unix -k ... or other means to preserve timestamps on 
*.in and *.out files.

- I don't like the spaces in
Computing the integral closure of an affine semigroup.pdf,

  but that's might be my problem.

Updated SRPM: http://tremble.fedorapeople.org/packages/normaliz-2.2-3.fc12.src.rpm

- in %install swap the two first lines:

- change last paragraph in desc:

- consider to use dos2unix -k ... or other means to preserve timestamps
Time stamps being preserved by touch

- I don't like the spaces in
Neither do I, replace with _s

Comment 7 Terje Røsten 2010-02-25 15:55:34 UTC
Ok, this is good, now we are at the pedantic level, start all changelog lines
with lower or upper case letters, fix this during importing.

 The package normaliz is APPROVED.
