Hi Vadim,

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.
Comment 2 Vadim Rutkovsky 2012-08-08 10:59:55 EDT
Hi David,

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
Comment 3 David Cameron 2012-08-10 06:05:02 EDT
Errors from rpmlint:

lightread.noarch: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 1.0.20-1 ['1.0.20.git20120808-1.1', '1.0.20.git20120808-1.1']
lightread.noarch: E: dir-or-file-in-opt /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/lightread/bin/lightread
lightread.noarch: W: percent-in-%postun

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" :)
Comment 4 Vadim Rutkovsky 2012-08-10 06:36:10 EDT
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.
Comment 6 Michael Hall 2013-01-12 16:57:09 EST
Installing to /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/ is only there for submitting the package to Ubuntu's MyApps portal[1].  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
