This is my first Fedora package and I need a sponsor
The spec file must be directly accessible, not embedded in a web page, and the link to the SRPM gives a 404. These problems need to be fixed before any review can be done.
Here is a direct link to Spec - https://raw.github.com/roignac/Specs/master/lightread.spec
An updated SRPM can be found here - http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/roignac/Fedora_17/src/lightread-1.0.20.git20120808-1.1.src.rpm
Errors from rpmlint:

It's bad to define your own bindir, and it is forbidden to install anything to /opt. Please try to stick to the filesystem layout in the guidelines:
and avoid creating any directories called "Ubuntu" :)
David, thanks for comments. These directories (and /opt usage) are used and harcoded in upstream, so I'll prepare a pull request, which will fix this behaviour.
I'll post a new comment with spec and SRPM links when these changes will be adopted by upstream
*Please* try to keep your Package Review request up-to-date or mark it as NotReady: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Package_Review_Process
Currently, the links to the spec and the src.rpm give 404 once again, so there is nothing available to take a look at. Not even an older package that may lead to reviewer's comments that would still apply in the next package release.
Installing to /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/ is only there for submitting the package to Ubuntu's MyApps portal. If you are converting that version of the Debian package to an RPM, you'll want to change the target installation directory to one appropriate for Fedora/RedHat.
Ping! Any progress here?
The project is dead (same as Google Reader), closing
