When his father fails to return home after venturing out one dark and stormy

Hi,

I just saw your review swap mail about this one on the mailinglist. I'm afraid though that Edgar likely cannot go in Fedora as is, because the sound effects and music are likely non free.

parallelrealities make great games, but in the past they have used non free resources for them. We've had the same issue with blobwars (for which a new sf.net hosted upstream was founded, and there all non free resources got replaced) and its sequal blobandconquer (also new sf.net hosted upstream, resource replacement still a wip).

When the blob* issue came up, I've also mailed Richard Sweeney about edgar, his reply back then was: "I created the graphics myself, the sound and music come from various sources such as Modarchive and FindSounds.com, so you'll need to replace those."

I guess the first point of order would be to mail Richard and ask if anything has changed wrt the free-ness of the various resources. Please stay polite and friendly! We've a good working ship with Richard (ie the official blobwars page now links to the new sf.net project).

Regards,

Hans

Richard replied there are sounds that are not licensed with a "good" Fedora content license.

He tried in the past to replace them with others from freesound.org but it was a huge task and he become quickly demoralized and stopped his attempt (moreover not all sounds in there are licensed with a "good" Fedora license). 

He's happy for someone else to supply replacements though. Maybe an effort with other distributions (e.g. Debian) can be started.

I think we can close this review here and move it to RPM Fusion. If and when this problem will be solved we can reopen it again.

Ok, that is more or less as expected. Note that an alternaive approach is to find free replacement sounds, as was done for blobwars. freesound.org is not a good place to do that as it contains raw unedited sounds, which is not really helpful. With blobwars we got most sounds from http://soundbible.com/ which has quite a nice collection of ready for use sounds. Note it has both non-free and free sounds, so check the license of each one! I personally can recommend the sounds made by Mike Koenig, they are quite suitable for use in games.

Comment 5 Andrea Musuruane 2013-08-25 19:09:49 UTC
I reopen this review request because edgar now contains sounds licensed under a "good" Fedora license:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=653813#80

Therefore I think we can include it in Fedora proper.

http://cvs.rpmfusion.org/viewvc/*checkout*/rpms/edgar/devel/edgar.spec?revision=1.8&root=nonfree

http://buildsys.rpmfusion.org/logs/fedora-development-rpmfusion_nonfree/18234-edgar-1.12-1.fc20/edgar-1.12-1.fc20.src.rpm

Hans, can you review it? It should be really straitforward since you had already reviewed for RPM Fusion:
https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2378

I'll be glad to return the favour reviewing one of your packages.

Comment 6 Hans de Goede 2013-08-26 07:31:26 UTC
Cool that it has all free resources now, full review done:

Good:
--------
- rpmlint checks return:
  3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines
- license (GPLv2+ and CC-BY and CC-BY-SA and CC0 and GPLv3) OK, text in %doc, matches source
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source matches upstream
- package compiles on devel (x86)
- no missing BR
- no unnecessary BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all directories that it creates
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- .desktop file properly installed

Should fix:
---------------
- The rm -rf %{buildroot} at the beginning of %install is obsolete / no longer needed, please remove it

No blockers: APPROVED, don't forget to bump the release so that the Fedora package is newer then the rpmfusion one.
