Ion Beam Simulator or IBSimu is an ion optical computer simulation package
for ion optics, plasma extraction and space charge dominated ion beam
transport using Vlasov iteration. The code has several capabilities
for solving electric fields in a defined geometry and tracking
particles in electric and magnetic fields. The code is a constructed
as a C++ library for maximal versatility and openness.
There is on rpmlint warning
but this is a URL in the comment, presumably as long as that is not set then it won't
be evaluated and remain as it is.
I had a look at your spec file and I don't think that there are major problems, however I need to have a closer look at it. Meanwhile I have two comments:
- Presumably the % won't make trouble, on the other hand, is the link really
necessary? I mean the point is that you described why the patches are needed
and that upstream knows about them, in my opinion this should be sufficient.
And we can slip the "ugly" %
- You wrote in the description: "The code is a constructed as a C++ library for
maximal versatility and openness." Probably there is an 'a' too much.
I can drop the URL and also I agree the first "a" should go:
"The code is a constructed as a C++ library for maximal versatility...."
I'll wait if you have more comments or fix these of course at import time.
Here we go with the review:
[+] = ok
[o] = does not apply
[-] = needs work
