Comment 1 Peter Lemenkov 2011-02-08 11:28:18 UTC
I'll review it

Comment 2 Peter Lemenkov 2011-02-08 11:40:24 UTC
Unblocking FE-NEEDSPONSOR - I just sponsored Oksana.

Comment 3 Peter Lemenkov 2011-02-08 11:44:00 UTC
Koji scratch build for Rawhide (still wip at the moment of writing this):


Comment 4 Peter Lemenkov 2011-02-08 12:03:43 UTC
Unfotrunately it failed to build in Koji. Please, fix this issue.

There are other issues:

1) The directory %{_datadir}/%{name} is left unowned. Please fix the %files section in the following  way:

- %{_datadir}/%{name}/*
+ %{_datadir}/%{name}/

Note that I stripped trailing asterisk thus claiming ownership on the entire directory (not only on their contents).

2) The following change *should* be done with patch instead of sed. 

sed -i -e 's|strerror(e.system_error())|EE(e)|g' \

3) Please, ensure that none of bundled libaries (dbus-c++, libconfig, libtorrent) are used during building. I suggest you to remove both of then in the %prep section.

Comment 5 Oxana Kurysheva 2011-02-09 17:10:20 UTC
Fixed everything.

There were some problems with new API of new libnotify in rawhide.

Comment 6 Oxana Kurysheva 2011-02-09 22:35:49 UTC
Sorry, not everything. I forgot about the third point. I will check deps tomorrow, they aren't good now. Don't check a package before this, please..

Comment 8 Peter Lemenkov 2011-02-11 11:51:53 UTC
The package still uses internal bundled copies of the following libraries:

* dbus-c++
* libconfig
* libtorrent

You should try to add --enable-system-libconfig and --enable-system-libtorrent to the %configure. Unfortunately, it seems that these commandline switches conflicts with --disable-bundle-package. Also there is no way to drop dependency on  dbus-c++ w/o changing configure.ac (and reconfiguring it).

Also there is one more issue - with updating icons cache. Take a look at the build logs:

*** Icon cache not updated. After install please run:
***   gtk-update-icon-cache -f -t /usr/share/icons/hicolor

this also must be fixed. Otherwise looks good.

Comment 10 Peter Lemenkov 2011-03-09 09:10:02 UTC
FYI version 0.9.10 has been released.

Comment 11 Oxana Kurysheva 2011-03-09 09:58:05 UTC
Thanks, will try..

Comment 14 Peter Lemenkov 2011-03-11 09:19:18 UTC
Looks much better now!

^^^ This one may be omitted.

^^^ This one should be converted from koi8-r to UTF-8 before installing.

1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 2 warnings.
work ~/Desktop: 

+ The package is named according to the  Package Naming Guidelines.
+ The spec file name matches the base package %{name}, in the format %{name}.spec.

- The package doesn't meet the Packaging Guidelines fully (still there is an issue with icon cache). Take a look at this link for best practices with updating icon's cache:


Just copypaste this example into your spec (replacing %post section entirely).

+ The package is licensed with a Fedora approved license and meets the Licensing Guidelines.

- The License field in the package spec file MUST match the actual license (GPLv3 or later). Thus the License tag must be set to GPLv3+.

+ The file, containing the text of the license(s) for the package, is included in %doc.
+ The spec file is written in American English.
+ The spec file for the package is legible.
+ The sources used to build the package, matches the upstream source, as provided in the spec URL.

work ~/Desktop:

+ The package successfully compiles and builds into binary rpms on at least one primary architecture. See koji link above
+ All build dependencies are listed in BuildRequires.
+ The spec file handles locales properly (by using the %find_lang macro).
0 No shared library files in some of the dynamic linker's default paths.
+ The package does NOT bundle copies of system libraries.
0 The package is not designed to be relocatable.
+ The package owns all directories that it creates.
+ The package does not list a file more than once in the spec file's %files listings.
+ Permissions on files are set properly.
0 The package DOESN'T have a %clean section, so it won't build cleanly on systems with old rpm (EL-4 and EL-5, not sure about EL-6). Beware.
+ The package consistently uses macros.
+ The package contains code, or permissible content.
0 No extremely large documentation files.
+ Anything, the package includes as %doc, does not affect the runtime of the application.
0 No header files.
0 No static libraries.
0 No pkgconfig(.pc) files.
0 The package doesn't contain library files without a suffix (e.g. libfoo.so).
0 No devel sub-package.
+ The package does NOT contain any .la libtool archives.
+ The package includes a %{name}.desktop file, and this file is properly installed with desktop-file-install in the %install section.
+ The package does not own files or directories already owned by other packages.
+ At the beginning of %install, the package runs rm -rf %{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).
+ All filenames in rpm packages are valid UTF-8.

Ok, so the only remaining issues are:

* Convert russian man-page to UTF-8
* Change Licence tag to GPLv3+
* Properly update icon's cache

Ok, good. I can't find any other issues, so this package is

Comment 27 Michael Schwendt 2011-03-23 10:32:21 UTC
It defaults to "[x] Hide main window to try at startup". It this normal? It is very confusing to start the app via "Applications > Internet > Flush" without any window getting displayed.

Comment 28 Oxana Kurysheva 2011-03-25 19:05:54 UTC
Thank you, Michael. Will try to solve this with upstream. There are some strange bugs with this option.
