Description: Libchipcard a library allowing access to
DDV and Starcos chipcards via PC/SC.
Fedora Account System Username: lemm
this is my first package and I need a sponsor for it. Technically this package extends - but does not replace - the gwenhywfar package. I would be happy to find a sponsor that has some knowledge in this area. Please see below for koji builds. Also, please see below for rpmlint output.
About the software packaged:
The packaged library serves a rather arcane configuration: hbci banking (predominantly found in europe/germany, only) with particular types of chipcards that unfortunately my bank issued to me. The upside being all account transactions can be imported automatically into banking software e.g. gnucash et al. I presume it'll be hard to find testers.
Koji builds - I think they were successful. If not - since I'm not fluent in koji - let me know.

upstream informed of missing manuals / gpl update
try the last version 5.0.3 but beware there exist an build bug for x86_64.
add the line /usr/lib64 to the search path list for libpcsclite.so on line
17007 at the configure script.
I found the 5.0.3 beta and put it into an rpm (for fedora 19):
However I don't have a 64bit environment to roll the 64bit rpms on.
I can test it, when you can send me the srpm.
Uploaded to same link as above... Many thnks for looking into this
I can sponsor/review this too, though since this is pretty old, please comment that you're still interested in pursuing this.
Thank you for your willingness to sponsor this. However, I have moved on since then, providing updates only occasionally to the project's mailing list (given the relative effort to setup a proper fedora provided package).
Also I have learend that the package is only interesting for accessing german bank accounts only. Therefore I withdraw my request.
Many thanks again
