Description Brendan Jones 2012-02-10 08:14:17 UTC
Loudness measurement according to EBU-R128.
Presented at LAC 2011 (thanks to Joern Nettingsmeier !).
The only documentation available ATM are the paper, the presentation
slides and the video of the LAC 2011 session.

This is another package being moved from the Planet CCRMA repo.

SRPM: http://bsjones.fedorapeople.org/ebumeter-0.1.0-2.fc16.x86_64.rpm
SPEC: http://bsjones.fedorapeople.org/ebumeter.spec

Comment 2 Volker Fröhlich 2012-02-11 23:30:36 UTC
License is GPLv2+, according to the code.

As you ship the desktop file as a separate source, I suggest not to modify it in the specfile.

Comment 4 Volker Fröhlich 2012-02-14 09:04:22 UTC
Your desktop file does not specify an icon. I therefore assume, you're not installing one -- specifically not into the hicolor directory.

Therefore the scriptlets are not necessary.

Comment 5 Brendan Jones 2012-02-14 09:22:48 UTC
SRPM: http://bsjones.fedorapeople.org/ebumeter-0.1.0-4.fc16.src.rpm
SPEC: http://bsjones.fedorapeople.org/ebumeter.spec

I have an icon from upstream, installed in pixmaps instead so scriptlets have been removed

Comment 6 Volker Fröhlich 2012-03-05 22:39:24 UTC
I recommend to put Name before Summary.

Please preserve the icon's timestamp with something like "install -p -m644 ...".

The FSF postal address SHOULD be corrected and upstream should be informed.

Other than that, everything looks fine. I'll take the review.

Comment 7 Brendan Jones 2012-03-06 03:17:19 UTC
Thanks for the help.

It seems to me, you don't have to BR:

Final remarks:

Please fix those warnings:

[makerpm@lenovo-muw SOURCES]$ desktop-file-validate ebumeter.desktop
ebumeter.desktop: error: value "Application;AudioVideo;Audio;X-Jack;X-Audio_Tools" for string list key "Categories" in group "Desktop Entry" does not have a semicolon (';') as trailing character
ebumeter.desktop: warning: key "Encoding" in group "Desktop Entry" is deprecated

As soon as that is solved, I'll approve the package.

Please inform upstream about the wrong FSF address, if you haven't already.


Please remove the space in front of the exclamation mark in the description and break the line before "presentation", so the text is less ragged. Also delete the empty line at the beginnning of the file.
