Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2012-08-26 23:47:15 UTC
MUST add mateconf schema scriptlets

SHOULD remove  needless ldconfig -devel scriptlet

SHOULD remove from  -devel
Requires: %{name}%{?_isa} = %{version}-%{release}
(the dep on -libs is enough)

b111a2ea36b6fea4603d63e4dc252092  mate-window-manager-1.4.0.tar.xz

Requires:  %{name}%{?_isa} = %{version}-%{release}
depending on -libs is enough

3.  main pkg  MUST

macros: not ok
4. MUST not use undefined %{po_package} macro, either define it, or just use %{name} in place of it

5.  MUST own theme parent dirs, instead of:
or even just

Comment 11 Michael S. 2012-08-27 10:44:14 UTC
Like the other mate package, this review missed importants bits :

- desktop file usage X-mate seems incorrect, see #847604 

- the license should also be more explicit, see #847604 and #847419
( especially since this would have shown there is gtk code bundled in the tarball, it seems since a few years ).

Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2012-08-27 12:35:31 UTC
* Mon Aug 27 2012 Rex Dieter <rdieter@fedoraproject.org>  1.4.0-4
- main pkg Requires: %%name-libs
- drop needless icon scriptlets
- s|MATE|X-MATE| .desktop Categories on < f18 only
- License: GPLv2+

though your comment about bundled code is ominous,  details?

Comment 13 Michael S. 2012-08-27 13:24:40 UTC
There is code coming from gtk, src/ui/metaaccellabel.c 
but that's a upstream issue. I do not know how much did the code evolved, and if that matter. I guess this should be discussed with gtk and mate upstream ?

Comment 14 Rex Dieter 2012-08-27 13:58:00 UTC
It does say at the top of that file:
/* Marco hacked-up GtkAccelLabel */
which certainly implies that it was done on purpose (for some reason).
