Description: mu is a set of tools for dealing with Maildirs and the e-mail messages in them.
This is my first package, so I'm hunting for a sponsor.
A couple of notes about the spec, as you can see from the sed commands, there's a libtool/rpath issue in the package. I read that autoreconfing is frowned upon, so this solution seems to work reasonably well. I've been working with the upstream author already on a few other configure.ac changes to help building on fc-14, so I suspect we'll be able to eliminate this kludge within an upstream release or two.
one more thing- the short name worries me a little- the author uses "mu0" at google code (I'm guessing maybe theres a minimum length?), but the project is also referred to as "mu-tools" in a few places, so I think there's an alternative if "mu" doesn't work for Fedora packaging.
user tibbs on #fedora-devel suggested that I review some other pendingreview packages to help secure a sponsorship of this one. I found a few interesting ones that I'll note here. First, 611372.
I'll also work on 634025.
Withdrawing submission, I think simply having a working spec file satisfies my needs. It'll be available at the same location if an established maintainer would like to create a new package later.
