Description Bill Nottingham 2012-07-25 18:13:29 EDT
This package has not been built since Fedora 15, having failed multiple mass
rebuild cycles.

As part of the normal process for retiring packages that have not
successfully built, this package is scheduled to be removed from Fedora on
or around the Fedora 18 branch date (August 7th).

Please fix this as soon as possible.

Fixes to the specto spec file

I've been building my own Specto RPMs for personal use for a while now, and I'm fairly certain the build issue is a simple missing buildrequires for intltool. The attached patch shows the differences between the current specfile in git master and the one I use personally - diff picked up on quite a bit of the superfluous cleanup and whitespace tweaks I made, so apologies if it's a bit messy.

If it would help, I'd be happy to co-maintain specto.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2012-07-26 14:20:29 EDT
Certainly, you can feel free to apply for comaintainership.
Comment 3 Theodore Lee 2012-07-26 20:10:20 EDT
I've requested commit rights in pkgdb.
Comment 4 Theodore Lee 2012-08-03 21:36:43 EDT
Could we perhaps get a provenpackager to add intltool to the build requirements and do a rebuild so this package doesn't end up blocked?

This package appears to be building successfully these days, closing:
