giFT is a modular daemon capable of abstracting the communication between
the end user and specific filesharing protocols (peer-to-peer or otherwise).

Comment 2 Aurelien Bompard 2005-12-13 13:46:03 UTC
* When building in mock, at the end of configure :
use libmagic............: no
-> missing BR: file

* Summary should be capitalized

Works fine otherwise.

Peer to peer software is not listed in ForbiddenItems, so I guess giFT is OK for
inclusion in Fedora, right ?

It looks like you also have to add "--enable-libmagic" for libmagic to be picked up.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2005-12-15 18:22:09 UTC

- --enable-libmagic
