Description Enrico Scholz 2005-10-24 15:15:54 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:

mimetic is a GPL MIME library written in C++ designed to be easy to use
and integrate but yet fast and efficient. mimetic doesn't use exceptions
but it heavily uses templates so a mostly standard compliant C++ compiler
is required.

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2005-12-25 15:55:09 UTC
IMO, the authors ought to avoid putting a header file "config.h" into
the API and in a top-level search location. Not only because of the
HAVE_FOO definitions, but also because it increases the risk of search
path precedence conflicts in applications which may use an own config.h

* source verified against upstream locations
* rpmlint is silent
* spec file looks good
* patch reviewed
* builds fine on FC4
* binary package listings look good


Comment 3 Enrico Scholz 2005-12-25 22:16:57 UTC

I contacted the developer and asked him to avoid the 'config.h' file but got no
answer yet.
