> BuildRequires: synce-devel

I believe this is a dead end on x86_64, where it doesn't build: bug 148003

You can use the %setup macro for simpler tarball extraction into
rpm build dir. This would also clean up the %doc statements:

Comment 2 Andreas Bierfert 2005-08-18 05:43:48 UTC
Thanks for the review. Here is the new version with disabled synce plugin on x86_64.

Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2005-08-19 21:54:50 UTC
First a few somewhat related findings:

$ strings $(which sylpheed-claws) | grep firefox
mozilla-firefox -remote 'openURL(%s,new-window)'

Since "mozilla-firefox" does not exist in PATH, a better default for 
Sylpheed-claws would be:

  gnome-open '%s'


I cannot seem to get Sylpheed-claws to verify GPG MIME signatures
automatically in a convenient way. Plugin is loaded, sending signed
mails works. But it only lists the signatures as
"[application/pgp-signature (189 bytes)]" and in the message body
parts list view above/right of the message text box. Only if I select
the text/plain MIME part there, I get the signature verification status
message at the bottom of the window.


For any attachments (like signatures above or the text/plain part), if I
double-click on them in the MIME Type list, I get:

  execvp: No such file or directory


Now back to this package:

/usr/include/ical.h in package "sylpheed-claws-plugins-vcalendar" is
an API for libical, which is used in this plugin. Installing it looks
like an upstream mistake and only bears the risk of creating a conflict
with any other package which would provide /usr/include/ical.h

Rest looks good.

Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2005-08-19 22:04:00 UTC
synce is now orphaned, see /cvs/extras/owners/owners.list revision 1.103

Comment 5 Andreas Bierfert 2005-08-19 22:45:54 UTC
I will look at the sylpheed-claws issues and maybe report the gpg stuff
upstream. As for ical.h: excluded from current release. 

I will take ownership of synce as I am working on multisync packages atm anyway...

Thx for the review.

Comment 6 Michael Schwendt 2005-08-20 11:56:31 UTC
With 'devel', sylpheed-claws needs a rebuild against new GTK+/Cairo ABI change
in Rawhide before this could be built.
