Comment 1 Mohamed El Morabity 2012-05-21 08:26:34 EDT

I will review your package, since I need it.

Some comments:

- some rpmlint issues (I dropped the non-significative ones):

- xml-commons-apis is already required by ant, you could drop it from the BuildRequires.

- The patches are OK for me. But you don't need to modify etc/build/properties.xml (see flyingsaucer-R8-build.patch) to detect itext, svgsalamander and xml-commons-apis if you put them in the CLASSPATH before building:
    export CLASSPATH=$(build-classpath itext xml-commons-apis svgsalamander)
    ant jar docs

- I don't think « R8 » is a good version tag. Setting it simply to « 8 » may be enough (« R » is probably for « release »).

- The Provides tag on xhtmlrenderer is an excellent idea, as well as providing the link xhtmlrenderer.jar. You should anyway put it in %{buildroot}%{_javadocdir}/%{name}, with the other JARs, to comply with the guidelines:
Comment 2 gil cattaneo 2012-05-21 20:29:29 EDT
Spec URL: http://gil.fedorapeople.org/flyingsaucer/1/flyingsaucer.spec
SRPM URL: http://gil.fedorapeople.org/flyingsaucer/1/flyingsaucer-8-2.fc16.src.rpm
- moved xhtmlrenderer link jar file in %%{_javadir}/flyingsaucer subdirectory
- fix files with wrong encoding
- fix version tag
- removed classpath from manifest

i dont want to use: export CLASSPATH=....
