Description Wart 2006-11-28 23:23:47 UTC
Spec URL:
Memchan is an extension library to the script language Tcl. It provides several new channel types for in-memory channels and the appropriate commands for their creation.

Not a problem - clean in rpmlint
Clean in mock (x86)


Includes docs
Spec in UTF 8, US English
Constant use of macros
Includes devel
Upstream matches package
Installs clean
Uses smp_mflags
No permission or ownership issues

Not sure on

mann isn't covered by the FHS, but it's part of the filesystem package and
commonly used by Tcl and Tcl extensions for storing man pages.
