Note rpmlint warning is a false negative because the url is working fine.

The changelog shows the spec is originally from Russian Fedora adapted to Fedora Packaging guideline

Error 404 downloading http://luya.fedorapeople.org/packages/SPEC/gimp-dds-plugin.spec
Comment 5 Igor Gnatenko 2013-07-29 06:48:26 EDT
Use configure:
echo '#!/bin/bash' > configure
chmod +x configure


Change Release version. In changelog you are using '2', but in Release tag see '1'.

Do not use other utilites in %install section and use %make_install instead of make install DESTDIR=...


Add TODO and INSTALL to %doc and I think good idea add files from doc/ firectory to %doc
Comment 7 Luya Tshimbalanga 2013-07-29 14:17:35 EDT
Thank you the suggestion. I updated the spec file and kept the changelog as it is.

It's not a MUST.

You shouldn't include INSTALL in your %doc section. It's useless for users.
Comment 9 Christopher Meng 2013-07-29 23:44:55 EDT
IMO you'd better using gimp-plugin-xxx to name the plugins. The current one is not good, and see Mageia/Archlinux/OpenSUSE(has this plugin, too), they also name this plugin or such plugins in this way, we should keep the same.

And you should also create a subpackage named -doc to contain the doc/.
Comment 10 Luya Tshimbalanga 2013-07-30 00:46:21 EDT
In that case, it would be better to contact current maintainers of gimp plugins for the name convention:
- gimp-fourier-plugin
- gimp-lqr-plugin
Comment 11 Christopher Meng 2013-07-30 00:52:32 EDT
It depends on you.

Anyway, please drop the install file and include the docs.

I think my reviw request was first.

Ah good to know, in that case I leave you the updated spec to help you packaging:

SRPMS: http://luya.fedorapeople.org/packages/SRPMS/gimp-plugin-dds-2.2.1-4.fc19.src.rpm
SPEC: http://luya.fedorapeople.org/packages/SPECS/gimp-plugin-dds.spec

Hope it helps.
Comment 14 Luya Tshimbalanga 2013-07-30 03:46:24 EDT
I am closing this report to avoid duplicating the work if Igor doesn't mind. I have another package for review #989359. Thank you for the helps.

> gimp-fourier-plugin
> gimp-lqr-plugin

Those names seem to be okay, because the naming scheme is  %{parent}-%{child}  with %parent being "gimp":


If one reversed the order of the two name parts in %child, the %parent prefix would stay the same and would help with listing packages that are named gimp*.

| gimp-high-pass-filter
| gimp-normalmap
| gimp-resynthesizer

Those are plug-in packages without "-plugin" in their name.

A user, who lists "gimp-plugin*" to find add-on packages, will have trouble finding all these, however that's the user's mistake. Just look at "yum list gimp*", for example.
