Description: gtkspell bindings for perl(Gtk2)
Perl bindings to GtkSpell, used in concert with Gtk2::TextView. Provides mis-spelled word highlighting in red and offers a right click pop-up menu with suggested corrections.

Please ignore the ".ckw.fc4" in the srpm's filename -- I have %dist set to that in my ~/.rpmmacros.

This is my first extras package, and I'm seeking a sponsor! :)

Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2005-12-14 01:00:29 UTC
NOTE: I cannot sponsor, but here's a review. :)

- Package name is good. 
- License is good and matches upstream (LGPL)
- Source is good and matches upstream
- builds fine on fc4/devel. 
- package seems to work as expected using the include test perl script. 

- rpmlint warning: 
W: perl-Gtk2-Spell devel-file-in-non-devel-package
- why bother to use the %realname macro? Is the package name expected to change
very often? :) 
- why the 'echo n | ' in the build section? 
- Might include the Changelog file as a doc.

Updated spec/srpm:
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:

%realname is used as I was creating a bunch of module rpms for my own use; this
macro allowed me to quickly take a template spec file and cusomize it.

Minor issues addressed:
- 'echo n |' in %build nixed.
- ChangeLog included as a doc

Comment 3 Josh Boyer 2006-01-27 19:30:25 UTC

All of the above and no more rpmlint warnings


- perl is not needed as a BuildRequires
- ditch the %realname macro

Fixup those two remaining issues and I think this is ready for approval

Comment 4 Chris Weyl 2006-02-17 01:40:03 UTC

SRPM Name or Url:

TODOs from #3 addressed; release tag reset to 1.

Comment 5 Ralf Corsepius 2006-02-17 10:50:17 UTC
Please remove the perl_* stuff at the very beginning of the spec.

Also, please don't reset the release tag, and increment it instead even during

Comment 6 Chris Weyl 2006-02-18 16:27:45 UTC
Updated spec/srpm:

SRPM Name or Url:

Updated per #5.

Comment 7 Josh Boyer 2006-02-20 13:02:23 UTC
This package is accepted.

Chris, you'll need to apply for CVS access here:

In the meantime, I've imported the SRPM into CVS.  Once you get CVS access, you
can request a build and create any branches you'd like.

Comment 8 Christian Iseli 2006-03-28 15:25:02 UTC
Any particular reason why this package is not yet built and in owners.list ?

Comment 9 Chris Weyl 2006-03-28 15:46:03 UTC
Yes, Real World/Life issues.  I'm just at the tail end of a transition from
living/working in Connecticut to California; I should be back up & running by
the end of the week.  Assuming the movers show up with my stuff today, of course :)
