Description Tim Waugh 2006-07-27 16:20:51 UTC
Spec URL:
This is a graphical tool for converting a local "wall-clock" time into
UTC.  This is useful for arranging conference calls where participants
from other countries are expected.

Comment 1 cq92j9y+rlkr0w 2006-07-27 18:08:03 UTC
Hi Tim,

A couple of comments:

* The preferred value for the BuildRoot tag is
"%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)". This is not a
requirement for approval, though.

* desktop-file-install is usually (always?) called using "--vendor fedora" and
"--add-category X-Fedora".

* rpmlint has a few complaints (none of them serious):
   W: international-time summary-ended-with-dot
   W: international-time no-url-tag
   W: international-time no-documentation

* You can drop the 'pygtk2' requirement since 'pygtk2-libglade' already depends
on it. Also, it seems rpm already adds a dependency on "/usr/bin/python"
automatically so the 'python' requirement might be redundant... but I'm not
really sure.

Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-08-02 09:52:14 UTC
I did some changes to this package's SPEC file. But as Author has not given URL
from where a source tarball can be downloaded and not included License copy in
%doc, rpmlint is not silent with warnings
W: international-time no-url-tag
W: international-time no-documentation

Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-08-02 10:00:49 UTC
Created attachment 133473 [details]
Clean SPEC file 

I have fixed buildroot, BR, %prep section, added dist tag, fixed desktop file
installation, added %doc

Comment 4 Jason Tibbitts 2006-10-03 01:25:42 UTC
Jeez, this has sat around for a long time.  Tim, I know your folks are rather
busy lately, but do you still want to pursue getting this into extras?

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2006-10-03 08:37:07 UTC
I do -- I'll have some time for this once FC6 is out, and will finish the
process.  Sorry for the delay.

Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-10-03 08:54:45 UTC
     You can use SPEC file I attached in comment #3.

1. Is there an upstream Source0 URL where this is available?
Are you the upstream author?

2. Can you include some kind of license information or files?
If it's GPL, might include a COPYING file and perhaps note that it's
distributed under the GPL in a README or in the source files?

3. You might change the default perms from:

4. rpmlint says:

W: international-time no-url-tag
W: international-time no-documentation

5. It seems to run fine here, but I get the following warning: 

(international-time:4464): libglade-WARNING **: could not find glade file 

Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2006-10-18 15:10:05 UTC
1. I am the upstream author.  I've put the original tarball in the
directory now.
2. COPYING now included.
3. Changed, thanks.
4. URL tag added.  There just isn't any documentation; I haven't written any. 
There's not a lot to say. :-)
5. Warning removed.

Comment 10 Kevin Fenzi 2006-10-18 18:06:45 UTC
1. ok. 
2. I see the COPYING file in the new upstream release, but not in the spec. 
3. ok. 
4. ok. Fair enough. It is a pretty simple app. 
5. ok. 

If you could add %doc COPYING to the spec when you check it in, that would be 
great. I don't see any more blockers, so this package is APPROVED, and I would 
be happy to sponsor you. 

Please continue the process from here:

Don't forget to close this review request with NEXTRELEASE once it's been 
imported and built.
