Mix of Xvnc and XDarwin with improved protocol.

Comment 1 manuel wolfshant 2007-01-09 09:11:47 UTC
- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines, including a comment specifying the fact
that parallel make is broken
- license ( GPL v2) OK, text in %doc, matches source
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source is the last available version and matches upstream, 
f6df982eaebd4bf7f26661c126a1747a9cb0ecb1 xwnc-0.3.3.tar.gz
- package compiles on devel (x86_64)
- no missing BR
- MINOR: duplicate BR autoconf (by automake), automake (by libtool)
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all directories/files that it creates, does not own foreign files/dirs
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- is an X server, so no need for .desktop file
- no .la, no scriptlets, nothing related to devel (static, header files)
- rpmlint is silent on both src.rpm and generated binary rpm
- does not segfault on start :)

I suggest the following
- modify 
so that you have better control and do not pull in unneeded stuff in case
upstream changes something
- add NEWS to %doc, it seems to contain more useful info then the included README
- fix BR if you feel like it (according to packaging rules, duplicate BR are


Comment 2 Christopher Stone 2007-01-10 18:58:46 UTC
- Removed glob from %files
- Added NEWS to %doc
- Not sure about your comment on BR, so I didnt fix anything in that regard
- imported new srpm into cvs
- added entry to owners.list
- built successfully for devel
- added cvs sync request for FC5/6


Comment 3 manuel wolfshant 2007-01-10 21:37:42 UTC
libtool pulls in automake which in turn pulls in autoconf. Therefore it is
enough to BR libtool

Comment 4 Christopher Stone 2007-01-11 01:09:39 UTC
okay, I'll fix this in the -3 release.  Seems also I did not have the latest
debian patch applied, I will also update this in the -3 release.  Thanks again.
