Description Mario Santagiuliana 2011-06-16 12:55:53 UTC
Spec URL: http://marionline.fedorapeople.org/packages/SPECS/libgcal.spec
SRPM URL: http://marionline.fedorapeople.org/packages/SRPMS/libgcal-0.9.6-3.fc14.src.rpm
This is a library to access google calendar events and contacts, its purpose is
   - provide easy access to available events/contacts
   - enable common operations: add, delete, edit
   - have few dependencies (up until now, only requires libcurl and libxml)

It implements Google Data API 2.0 and is tested on Linux and MacOSX.

I become today the new package mantainer for this software. I need a new review for this spec file bacause it wasn't update in the last 3 month.

There was a problem with the spec file in fedora git repository and the spec file in the src rpm for fedora 14. For fedora 15 the package was rebuild.
With this new spec I merge the two spec file, delete the line that doesn't respect the fedora guidelines and resolve bug #659959 .

I can help (re)review this.

Comment 2 Mario Santagiuliana 2011-06-16 13:39:38 UTC
Hi Rex thank you for your help! :)

I forgot to remove the clean section. Like I said I can't support EPEL because I don't have it and I only use Fedora.

Thank you! I'm waiting your reply :)

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2011-06-16 13:49:24 UTC
confirmed bug #659959 is fixed.


1.  Looks like this one has a similar problem that akonadi-googledata had, :)  %build section is pretty sparse.  I'd suggest modifying to something like:

%{cmake} .

make %{?_smp_mflags}

rm -rf %{buildroot}
make install/fast DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT

2.  %files has some excessive globs, imo, I'd suggest tracking lib soname at least, replace



3. -devel can drop
Requires: pkgconfig
pkgconfig-related depenendencies are handled automatically by rpm these days.

Comment 4 Mario Santagiuliana 2011-06-16 14:11:41 UTC
1) Change;
2) Fix
3) If I understand correctly now should be ok

4) I remove the %clear section

Could you check it now? I update the spec file:
And srpm:

P.S. I will use my email account for fedora in changelog, using my personal email can confuse people, I think.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2011-06-16 14:25:57 UTC
small cosmetic issue, 2. should be
not just

that way we can track the lib soname closer, and be alerted when/if that ever changes (ie, builds will fail).

I'll trust you to fix that prior to doing any builds...


go ahead and apply your changes to git, and close this when that's done.

Comment 6 Mario Santagiuliana 2011-06-16 15:26:23 UTC
Thank you very much, spec file updated and I push in fedora git the new spec file. I'm building the packages and then I'm pushing to bodhi. Then I will close this bug :)

Thank you very much!
