Spec URL: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/23916303/ee6phiYi/mu-maildir.spec
SRPM URL: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/23916303/ee6phiYi/mu-maildir-0.9.9-1.fc17.src.rpm

> Mu is a tool for dealing with e-mail messages stored in the Maildir
> format. Mu's main purpose is to quickly find and manipulate
> messages. Features include:
>  - Fast indexing of Maildir, Maildir+ and Maildir-on-VFAT
>  - Searching for messages based on numerous criteria
>  - Support for encrypted and signed messages
>  - Access/case normalization
>  - Integration with other email clients such as mutt and wanderlust

%description -n emacs-mu4e
> Mu4e is an email client for Emacs that uses the mu utility to interact
> with Maildir mailboxes. Mu4e is designed to enable super-efficient
> handling of email: searching, reading, replying, moving and
> deleting. Features include:
>  - Fully search-based: there are no folders, only queries
>  - UI optimized for speed with quick key strokes for common actions
>  - Fully documented, with example configurations
>  - Asynchronous: heavy actions never block emacs
>  - Write rich-text emails using org-mode (experimental)
>  - Address auto-completion based on your messages
>  - Extendable in many places using custom actions

In short, this package provides the mu maildir indexer and the mu4e emacs mode
built on top of mu. They share the same code base. Packages that the attached
spec produces:

> mu-maildir
> emacs-mu4e
> emacs-mu4e-el

The upstream name is indeed just 'mu', but 'mu-maildir' seemed like a more
reasonable name for the main package. In Debian, 'mu' is packaged as

> $ rpmlint mu-maildir.spec
> mu-maildir.spec: W: invalid-url Source0: http://mu0.googlecode.com/files/mu-0.9.9.tar.gz HTTP Error 404: Not Found
> 0 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 1 warnings.

The warning can be disregarded (see Bug 767739).

This is my first package review request. I would be thankful to anyone willing
to sponsor me.

Apparently, there has been another effort to package mu and mu4e into fedora - Bug 821917. Bugzilla wasn't very helpful the first time I tried searching for mu4e and mu, so I don't feel particularly bad about this being a duplicate.
