Builds in Koji:


Comment 2 Peter Lemenkov 2012-10-19 14:12:55 UTC
I'll review it.

Comment 3 Mario Ceresa 2012-10-19 14:35:04 UTC
New srpm which fixes the name of the license, the comments to regenerate the tarball from the svn and the docs


Maybe I have to call it expatpp-0-20121019r6.fc17.src.rpm?

Comment 4 Peter Lemenkov 2012-10-28 11:02:07 UTC
Few notes:

* Please specify a svn revision explicitly (instead of exporting HEAD)
* Relese should be from 1.20121019gitd8c1bf8%{?dist}

Otherwise looks good.
