Description Hugo Cisneiros 2006-05-01 21:55:09 UTC
Spec URL:

netPanzer is an online multiplayer tactical warfare game designed for FAST
ACTION combat. Gameplay concentrates on the core -- no resource management is
needed. The game is based on quick tactical action and unit management in
real-time. Battles progress quickly and constantly as destroyed players respawn
with a set of new units. Players can join or leave multiplayer games at any

This is my new package and I need a sponsor, please :)

Comment 1 Andreas Thienemann 2006-05-02 01:32:23 UTC
netpanzer non-standard-group Games and Entertainment
Please also include the COPYING file as %doc, as required by the packaging

I'd suggest changing the Requires: netpanzer-data to netpanzer-data = %{version}
That way, you will not have to update the -data file, when you rebuild the
executable, thus saving bandwidth.
Right now, it is depending by default on netpanzer-data = %{version}-%{release}.

The netpanzer.xpm file is probably unnecessary, especially as the .png file is
referring to the .png file.

 * proper naming
 * spec file name matches %{name}
 * package meets packaging guidelines
 X License is GPL, License meets packaged COPYING
 * Spec file written in American English
 * Spec file is understandable
 * Package succesfully builds in mock on devel x86_64 and FC-5 x86
 * No locales/shared libraries to worry about
 * No static/libtool files
 * Package not relocatable
 * Package owns all directories it creates
 * No duplicate files
 * Proper file permissions, proper %defattr(...) in spec file
 * Package contains code
 * No need for separate doc package
 * %doc files not needed for runtime
 * No header/other devel package files to worry about
 * Desktop File included and conforming to the desktop file packaging standard

Comment 3 Andreas Thienemann 2006-05-02 03:06:13 UTC
Thanks for updating the package with my suggestions as well as the other
suggestions on IRC.
Gonna take a look at the package tomorrow though.

Comment 4 Andreas Thienemann 2006-05-04 03:38:21 UTC
Looking good. The License is included, The Group is fixed and rpmlint is clean.


However, you'll still need someone to sponsor your account. I can't do it. Sorry.

Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2006-05-04 14:32:46 UTC
I can sponsor and you seem worthy of sponsering concedering your quick and
correct reactions to this review and your other opensource and Fedora
(translation / writing) work.

Dropping this back to FE-REVIEW and assigning to me. I'll do a quick Re-review
just to make sure.

Comment 6 Hans de Goede 2006-05-04 15:11:08 UTC
Looking good, the icon installation however is not according to the standard.

Please mv netpanzer.png to:
at the end of %install and update %files accordingly.

You should then also add the following scripts to update the icon cache:
touch --no-create %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor || : 
if [ -x %{_bindir}/gtk-update-icon-cache ]; then
   %{_bindir}/gtk-update-icon-cache --quiet %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor || :

touch --no-create %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor || :
if [ -x %{_bindir}/gtk-update-icon-cache ]; then
   %{_bindir}/gtk-update-icon-cache --quiet %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor || :

These script are described in:

Comment 7 Hugo Cisneiros 2006-05-04 18:12:16 UTC
Updated package:

Spec URL:


- Changed netpanzer.png to comply with standards.
- Added scripts to update the icon cache after installing


Thanks for the support Hans de Goede. I updated the packages with your notes
from Comment #6. I now know about the freedesktop standard :-) If you have any
notes, just say and I'll update it.

Comment 8 Hans de Goede 2006-05-04 19:58:06 UTC
Looking good -> Approved!

Go create yourself an account as described here:

Follow all the steps there, don't forget signing the CLA! (or other steps) once
thats done I'll get a mail that you're awaiting sponsorship and I'll sponsor you.

While waiting for me sponsoring you you can install the client-side plague
(thats the FE buildsystem) tools and setup your CVS environment variables. These
are the next steps as described on:

After that import your package, tag it and request your first build :)
Don't be alarmed if the build fails with some missing gcc deps, rawhide and thus
the devel tree (where are initial imports are done) is broken atm.

Once your build has succeeded don't forget to close this bug with a resolution
of nextrelease.

Comment 9 Hugo Cisneiros 2006-05-04 20:24:57 UTC
Hi Hans,

I already have an account in Fedora Accounts System. My username is 'eitch' and
I joined the 'cvsextras' group. Thanks for the support :)

Comment 10 Hans de Goede 2006-05-04 20:45:48 UTC
I've just sponsored you, you should have CVS access now, but don't know how long
it takes for the system to pick this up.

Comment 11 Hugo Cisneiros 2006-05-05 20:37:15 UTC
This package is now built for FC-4 and FC-5. Closing bug. Thanks for all the
support on my first package guys :)

Comment 12 Hans de Goede 2006-05-05 20:40:39 UTC
Don't forget to build it for devel once building there is possible again and
concider adding it to comps/ (cvs co comps) to make it show up
in pirut.

Comment 13 Gwyn Ciesla 2007-02-28 13:51:04 UTC

Comment 14 Gwyn Ciesla 2007-03-01 19:41:35 UTC
