Description Damian Wrobel 2012-07-21 10:53:50 EDT
Spec URL: http://dwrobel.fedorapeople.org/projects/rpmbuild/SPECS/mscgen.spec
SRPM URL: http://dwrobel.fedorapeople.org/projects/rpmbuild/SRPMS/mscgen-0.20-2.fc17.src.rpm
Description: Mscgen is a small program that parses Message Sequence Chart descriptions and produces PNG, SVG, EPS or server side image maps (ismaps) as the output. Message Sequence Charts (MSCs) are a way of representing entities and interactions over some time period and are often used in combination with SDL. MSCs are popular in Telecoms to specify how protocols operate although MSCs
need not be complicated to create or use. Mscgen aims to provide a simple text
language that is clear to create, edit and understand, which can also be transformed into common image formats for display or printing.

Comment 2 Mario Blättermann 2012-07-29 09:33:04 EDT
You should drop pkgconfig from BR, because it is needed by freetype-devel anyway. The same for freetype-devel itself, it is needed by gd-devel.
Comment 3 Volker Fröhlich 2012-08-05 19:13:17 EDT
As the above is no blocker, to my knowledge, we can approve this package.

I recommend to add -f to your rm command.

Consider to install TODO and ChangeLog.

There are a few more comments in the review.
