> ./configure

Add a comment that explains why %configure cannot be used.

> Requires:       libbirdfont

This is the reverse case for
so apply %_isa in that dependency.

Splitting out a library subpackage when there is no API for that library, is a questionable decision, however. It's an unversioned lib even: %{_libdir}/lib%{name}.so

> %post -p /sbin/ldconfig
> %postun -p /sbin/ldconfig

Wrong package for those two.

Something wrong there for python-doit-0.21.0 in f19.
Comment 3 Christopher Meng 2013-07-06 11:09:23 EDT
Yes, there are some problem with doit, in fact this package cannot get PASS in the test.

I knew these, but then I found doit has bugs so I just rpmbuild -bs then upload.

I will wait.
