Description Patrice Dumas 2005-11-21 22:32:58 UTC
SRPM Name or Url:

The libnc-dap library is a call-for-call replacement for netcdf 3.5 (and
is mostly compatible with netcdf 3.6). It can read and write to and from
netcdf files on the local machine and it can read from DAP2 compatible data
servers running on local or remote machines. Data served using DAP2 need
not be stored in netcdf files to be read using this replacement library.
Also included in this package is the ncdump utility, also bundled with the
original netcdf library, relinked with the library and thus able to read
from DAP2 compatible servers.

Hi Patrice, heres a review:

 + specfile looks good, proper use of devel, clean, ldconfig, etc.
 + souce matches upstream
 + builds on FC-4
 + rpmlint OK
 + *.la correctly removed

 - please include both the COPYING and COPYRIGHT files in %doc

APPROVED.  Please feel free to check in the package as-is and add the 
COPYING file before requesting the first build.
