Description Chris Lalancette 2011-03-16 19:45:30 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: *Webby* is a fantastic little website management system. It would be called a *content management system* if it were a bigger kid. But, it's just a runt with a special knack for transforming text. And that's really all it does -
manages the legwork of turning text into something else, an *ASCII Alchemist*
if you will.
Webby works by combining the contents of a *page* with a *layout* to produce
HTML. The layout contains everything common to all the pages - HTML headers,
navigation menu, footer, etc. - and the page contains just the information for
that page. You can use your favorite markup language to write your pages;
Webby supports quite a few.
Install Webby and try it out!

I ran rpmlint against the spec:
[clalance@localhost SPECS]$ rpmlint rubygem-webby.spec
0 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
[clalance@localhost SPECS]$ rpmlint ../SRPMS/rubygem-webby- 
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

Based on review comments in BZ 688316, I've made a new package available.  Note that this package is *older* (0.9.4 vs. than the previous one, but it is the released version rather than a git snapshot.  The new SRPM and SPEC file are available here:

Well, it looks like webby is unmaintained upstream.  Combine this with the fact that we are going to switch the aeolus infrastructure over to using nanoc, and I think there isn't really a good reason to put this in Fedora.

Closing this review request out.
