Description Jima 2006-04-24 20:41:48 UTC
Spec URL:
VideoDog is a command line tool to grab frames from a Video4linux-compliant device. It can export a file in raw, PNM, or JPG formats. It can also do loop capture using multiple buffers, or just be used to set/retrieve device data or scripts.

Comment 1 Andreas Thienemann 2006-04-25 02:13:52 UTC

MUST: The package must be named according to the Package Naming Guidelines.
MUST: The spec file name must match the base package %{name}, in the format
MUST: The package must be licensed with an open-source compatible license and
meet other legal requirements as defined in the legal section of Packaging
MUST: The spec file must be written in American English.
MUST: The sources used to build the package must match the upstream source, as
provided in the spec URL. Reviewers should use md5sum for this task.
MUST: If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the license(s) in
its own file, then that file, containing the text of the license(s) for the
package must be included in %doc.
MUST: The spec file for the package MUST be legible. If the reviewer is unable
to read the spec file, it will be impossible to perform a review. Fedora is not
the place for entries into the Obfuscated Code Contest ([WWW]
MUST: A package must not contain any duplicate files in the %files listing.
MUST: Permissions on files must be set properly. Executables should be set with
executable permissions, for example. Every %files section must include a
%defattr(...) line.
MUST: Packages must NOT contain any .la libtool archives, these should be
removed in the spec.
MUST: Each package must have a %clean section, which contains rm -rf
%{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).
MUST: Each package must consistently use macros, as described in the macros
section of Packaging Guidelines.
MUST: The package must contain code, or permissable content. This is described
in detail in the code vs. content section of Packaging Guidelines.
MUST: If a package includes something as %doc, it must not affect the runtime of
the application. To summarize: If it is in %doc, the program must run properly
if it is not present.
MUST: The License field in the package spec file must match the actual license.
SHOULD: The reviewer should test that the package builds in mock.
SHOULD: The reviewer should test that the package functions as described. A
package should not segfault instead of running, for example.
MUST: The package must successfully compile and build into binary rpms on at
least one supported architecture.
MUST: rpmlint must be run on every package. The output should be posted in the
MUST: All build dependencies must be listed in BuildRequires, except for any
that are listed in the exceptions section of Packaging Guidelines; inclusion of
those as BuildRequires is optional. Apply common sense.


MUST: The package must meet the Packaging Guidelines.


Please do not use the urls.
URL: should be
while Source0: should be{version}.tar.gz

Otherwise the package looks fine, change this, and you can consider the package

Comment 2 Jima 2006-04-25 02:54:12 UTC
Thanks for the review.  The URLs have been changed in 0.31-2; I'll probably
import the package into CVS tomorrow.  I knew something was fishy about those URLs...

Comment 3 Jima 2006-04-26 00:19:58 UTC
Built cleanly on devel, FC5, FC4, and FC3.
