Cal3d is a skeletal based 3-D character animation library written in C++
in a platform-/graphic API-independent way.

oops, I meant to say above:

Spec URL:

*** NOTE *** You may have to download the src rpm from:

* Sun May 21 2006 Christopher Stone <chris.stone> 0.10.0-2
- Move some devel documentation into doc package

Comment 3 Rudolf Kastl 2006-05-21 09:50:22 UTC
spec file looks good to me.

Comment 4 Wart 2006-05-26 18:34:28 UTC
* rpmlint output clean
* source matches upstream
  47b3b72c6adcf5351f0884639d606d05  cal3d-full-0.10.0.tar.bz2
* Macro usage consistent
* Package named appropriately
* Spec file legible and in Am. English
* headers, .pc, and unversioned .so's are in -devel
* -devel contains fully-versioned dependency on base package
* LGPL license ok, license file included
* No locales
* ldconfig called in %post/%postun for shared libs
* Not relocatable
* Owns directories that it creates
* No duplicate %files
* Builds in mock on:
  FC4-i386, FC4-x86_64, FC5-i386, FC5-x86_64, devel-i386, devel-x86_64

* Ask upstream to include pregenerated configure scripts in their
  published tarballs.  I heard through the grapevine that upstream has moved
their download server off of sourceforge and produced a new source tarball that
doesn't require running 'autoreconf'.  I'd suggest using that tarball, but won't
consider it a blocker.

* My personal preference is to remove the *.la files in %install instead
  of %excluding them so that the %files section is cleaner.

* Don't use %{name} in %description or the -devel package summary
* Remove the leading 'A' from the Summary

Comment 5 Christopher Stone 2006-05-30 21:39:50 UTC
Thanks for the review.  Upstream is hinting at version 0.11.0 being released
next week, so I will wait until that is out before updating the spec.

Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2006-06-14 03:37:10 UTC
Spec URL:

* Tue Jun 13 2006 Christopher Stone <chris.stone> 0.10.0-4

* Mon Jun 12 2006 Christopher Stone <chris.stone> 0.10.0-3
