Comment 1 José Matos 2005-09-12 07:47:16 UTC
Would you consider to rename the package to x11-applet-wmapmload? 
This kind of packages are really small, they are very usefull to small/older 
systems that do not support the heavier desktop environments (kde/gnome/xfce). 
In this case they are sufficiently small to be reasonable to have a single 
package containing them all. I know that this has lots of drawbacks and so 
I propose to give them a commom prefix. I suggest x11-applet but any other 
name that conveys the same meaning is OK with me. 
I have approved a previous package wmacpi from you and I propose to rename 
it as well. 

Comment 2 Andreas Bierfert 2005-09-12 08:23:07 UTC
I am not sure on how to deal with this. For me there is the conflict of original
name vs. prefix-name. I don't know which one is better. Maybe we can satisfy
both and make a virtual package which requires all dockapps that are part of FE.
This way we can still use the original names of the packages and also have a
nice and easy way to keep track of all the dockapps.

As to the naming of such a package? Maybe x11-dockapps? x11-applets? And if we
take this approach we might want to have some discussions about that as we would
need some sort of common process for this.

I will present these doubts in fedora packaging list and I will wait for some 
output before returning here. 
FWIW, the package looks OK. Nice work. 

Comment 4 José Matos 2005-09-15 12:26:56 UTC
+ the package builds in mock/x86_64   
+ rpmlint   
W: wmapmload no-version-in-last-changelog  
W: wmapmload-debuginfo no-version-in-last-changelog  
  These can be ignored.   
+ package name follows the guideline   
+ package follows packaging guidelines   
+ license is valid, matches upstream and is included  
+ spec file is legible and is written in American English   
+ source matches upstream   
+ Requires and BR OK   
+ files ownership OK  
One suggestion, replace the package version in Source by %{version}.  
It will save you some typing for future versions. :-)
