Description Luke Macken 2006-07-10 20:41:09 UTC
Spec URL:
ConfigObj is a simple but powerful config file reader and writer: an ini file
round tripper. Its main feature is that it is very easy to use, with a
straightforward programmer's interface and a simple syntax for config files. 
It has lots of other features though:
    * Nested sections (subsections), to any level
    * List values
    * Multiple line values
    * String interpolation (substitution)
    * Integrated with a powerful validation system
          o including automatic type checking/conversion
          o repeated sections
          o and allowing default values
    * All comments in the file are preserved
    * The order of keys/sections is preserved
    * No external dependencies
    * Full Unicode support
    * A powerful unrepr mode for storing basic datatypes

* typo in the url (it's, not
* add --single-version-externally-managed to the %install step, see for more info

Looks like the doesn't support the flag:
     error: option --single-version-externally-managed not recognized
     error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.90142 (%install)

Comment 3 Aurelien Bompard 2006-07-19 07:36:11 UTC
Review for release 2:
* RPM name is OK
* Source is the same as upstream
* Builds fine in mock
* rpmlint looks OK
* File list looks OK
* Works fine
* According to the
--single-version-externally-managed option is automatically switched on when the
--root option is used, so the guidelines are probably wrong here (or maybe it's
a new feature ?)

Imported into CVS, added to owners.list, requested FC5 branch, tagged and built
for FC6.  Thanks!
