Comment 1 Bruce Cowan 2010-07-03 08:59:16 EDT
Here's an informal review:

The spec's layout is rather messy, it should conform to the template.


The Release should contain %{dist}


The BuildRoot tag is no longer required


rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT is not required in %install any more


%clean is no longer required


There is no changelog

Thank you, Bruce -- will reconsider all notes
Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2010-11-19 10:06:53 EST
Was there ever any response to the commentary?

I think this is a good idea for a package, but honestly, isn't there a better way to do it than by having a bunch of images?  Perhaps take a few backgrounds and have the screensaver itself print the text on them?  You could take the various words and translations from a text file, and it wouldn't even have to be language-specific.
Comment 4 Serguei Shimansky 2010-11-19 11:01:09 EST
Oh yes. Might be released using XML. Thanks for the hint. Will have to think this over.
Comment 5 Mario Blättermann 2012-10-20 17:34:17 EDT
As far as I can see, the current gnome-screensaver won't work with your package. It would be applicable for EPEL 5/6 only. Is it intended to go into these branches? Or are you actually still interested to keep this review request alive?

No response for years. Closing. Feel free to reopen if you want to continue.
