Description Patrice Dumas 2006-07-10 13:36:30 UTC

ooo2txt converts OpenOffice documents to simple text.

Sadly, it seems that the upstream author has passed away.

Comment 1 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-07-10 15:28:32 UTC
Please post the .spec as a separate file.  Having the .spec as a separate file
makes it easier for people to look over the package and make comments without
having to download the whole SRPM.

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2006-07-10 15:32:12 UTC
spec file should be here soon:

Having the spec file may be usefull in some cases, but in that
specific case I doubt it given that the spec is simple but there
is no source packaged...

Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2006-07-11 15:26:22 UTC
It's always nice to be able to click on the spec to look at it the browser. 
I'll do a quick review in a bit.

* source files match upstream:

   1cd6103b0b9c49524438c2f17fede3a9  readme.txt
   ce95a6c73a221041321d9582276a5358  update.txt
* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is correct.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  License text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   ooo2txt = 0.0.6-1.fc6
* %check is not present; no test suite upstream.
* no shared libraries are present.
* package is not relocatable.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no libtool .la droppings.
* not a GUI app.
