Description Patrice Dumas 2006-03-12 21:36:06 UTC
SRPM Name or Url:

The python chm package provides three modules, chm, chmlib and extra,
which provide access to the API implemented by the C library chmlib
and some additional classes and functions. They are used to access
MS-ITSS encoded files - Compressed Html Help files (.chm).

Comment 1 Patrice Dumas 2006-03-14 21:38:05 UTC
Better handling of .pyo files here:

Comment 2 John Mahowald 2006-03-17 16:47:27 UTC

- rpmlint checks return:
W: python-chm-debuginfo objdump-failed
Not critical.

- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines, following python template
- license (GPL) OK, text in %doc, matches source
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source matches upstream
- package compiles on devel (x86_64)
- no missing BR
- no unnecessary BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all directories that it creates
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- no need for .desktop file

Package Change Request
Package Name: python-chm
New Branches: el6
Owners: narasim sherry151 pertusus

I have requested commit access to fedora devel and epel 5 branches. Patrice Dumas has asked me to be the owner for el6 This package is required in el6 because chm2pdf is dependent on this package and security update to chm2pdf is required in el6.

Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2011-06-14 13:24:08 UTC
Git done (by process-git-requests).

Comment 6 Narasimhan 2012-08-07 14:05:18 UTC
Requesting to unretire the devel (master) branch. I maintain chm2pdf which requires python-chm.

Comment 7 Gwyn Ciesla 2012-08-07 14:22:32 UTC
Unretired, take ownership in pkgdb.
