Tiled is a general purpose tile map editor. It's built to be easy to use,
yet flexible enough to work with varying game engines, whether your game 
is an RPG, platformer or Breakout clone. Tiled is free software and written
in C++, using the Qt application framework.

I am not sponsered at the moment. I still need to work on getting sponsored ;)
Comment 1 Martin Gieseking 2012-09-03 05:32:44 EDT
Here are a couple of initial notes:

- Add a short comment above the License field explaining why we have a 
  multiple licensing scenario here (tiled/libtiled binary: GPLv2+, tmxviewer: 

- Since the package doesn't provide tiled only but also tmxviewer, you should
  add this information to the %description (and add a final period to the 

- As there are no development files (headers etc.) installed, you probably
  don't need to provide libtiled.so either. So I recommend to remove the file 
  and drop the devel package.

- The tarball contains a copy of zlib (src/zlib). Remove this folder in %prep
  and ensure that Fedora's zlib is linked.

- The locale files must be installed using %find_lang:

  Thus, add "%find_lang %{name} --with-qt" to the %install section, and append
  "-f %{name}.lang" to %files. Also, in the %files section, replace 
  %{_datadir}/tiled with %{_datadir}/tiled/images/ and add the following lines
  for proper directory ownership:
  %dir %{_datadir}/tiled/
  %dir %{_datadir}/tiled/translations

- Always try to avoid plain asterisks in the %files section. Instead it's much
  better to be more specific in order to avoid adding unexpected files to the

- Replace %{_libdir}/libtiled.so.1* with %{_libdir}/libtiled.so.* to simplify
  future updates.

Thanks for notes

Ok i dropped the devel package though i will need to reintroduce it for the next release because it will contain the currently missing headers.

Updated the SPEC (same link): https://dl.dropbox.com/u/45541625/tiled.spec

OK, that's fine. 

Some additional remarks:
- Unlike mentioned in your spec, libtiled is not licensed under BSD at the 
  moment. According to the boilerplates of maprenderer.cpp, gidmapper.cpp, and 
  gidmapper.h, these files are GPLv2+. This is probably a mistake. Please ask 
  upstream for clarification. Currently, BSD- and GPLv2+-licensed code is linked 
  together, and the resulting binary must be licensed under GPLv2+ as the latter 
  it more restrictive than BSD.

- Preserve the timestamps by adding -p to the 3rd and 4th "install" statement.

- In the first two "install" statements, change the file permissions 664 to 644.
  Sorry, the 664 was a typo in one of my comments about your mana package and 
  should be fixed there as well. ;)
Comment 4 Erik Schilling 2012-09-03 15:48:08 EDT
Ok i talked with upstream. The license headers were outdated (was already fixed in master). I did a patch based on the git commit.

Fixed the other issues too:

Comment 5 Martin Gieseking 2012-09-14 03:35:16 EDT
Here's the formal review of tiled. The package looks good now and is ready for check-in. Please keep in mind to adapt the License field and to update the license files in %doc once you update the package to a new upstream version that doesn't contain any GPLv2+ code any longer.

Note that tiled itself is still GPL. Only libtiled got relicensed

Thanks a lot for review.
