Description: Gnome desktop applet for integration with Google calendar

Comment 1 Devan Goodwin 2007-01-20 14:34:47 UTC
Also, this is my first contribution for Fedora extras and as such I am in need
of a sponsor.

Comment 4 Christoph Wickert 2007-01-21 15:48:03 UTC
Some initial comments:

1. You should consider renaming this package to something like gnome-wuja,
gnome-applet-wuja or gnome-wuja-applet. See the 'Addon Packages' section of the
Naming guidelines for more info.
If you rename this pacakge you should also a a Poovides: with the original name
to make 'yum install wuja' work. This would be similar to

2. change 
    /etc/gconf/schemas/wuja.schema to 
    %{_sysconfdir}/gconf/schemas/wuja.schema and
    /usr/bin/wuja to 

absolute paths are a No-Go. See
for a list of valid macros.

3. wuja.schema is not installed properly in gconf. You need to disable/skip
schemas install in and do this in %post, %pre and %preun. See

4. You should think about stripping down the files section with wildcards, e. g.

You could even use a minimal definition like

Makes sense as long as you are not planning to separate parts of the package or
exclude certain files.

Comment 5 Devan Goodwin 2007-01-21 21:11:46 UTC
Thanks for the feedback. Package updated incorporating the suggestions,
wuja.spec remains at the same location.

SRPM's new URL is:

Comment 6 Christoph Wickert 2007-01-28 02:00:22 UTC
According to the naming guidelines the name of the spec should be
gnome-applet-wuja.spec now.

I think you should replace wuja with gnome-applet-wuja now in %description, too.

You can remove the 'killall -HUP gconfd-2 ...'-lines from the scriptlets, since
bug #173869 is fixed.

The 'Obsoletes:'-tag is only needed
- if a package named wuja had already been published or
- if there are 3rd party packages named wuja and we want to replace them.
So for this special package you can remove it I think.

Comment 7 Trond Danielsen 2007-02-05 07:56:39 UTC
Spec file and srpm are not available at the given location.

Comment 8 Devan Goodwin 2007-02-05 12:54:16 UTC
My apologies, hard drive failure on what we were using as a webserver. Restored
from backup that didn't include the .spec file or the SRPM.

Also updated as per the suggestions in comment #6, new URL's are:

Comment 9 Devan Goodwin 2007-02-09 21:48:47 UTC
We've released version 0.0.6 to fix a bug, URL's are now:

Comment 10 Devan Goodwin 2007-02-22 23:26:14 UTC
Corrected the project description and renamed back to wuja (from
gnome-applet-wuja). Wuja just runs in the tray, but isn't a desktop applet.
Updated URL's:

Will upgrade to Fedora 7 soon and attempt to get the rpm building properly
without the elementtree dependency.

wuja-0.0.6-3 won't be rebuilt on FC-devel i386.
Please check BuildRequires (at least python-devel
seems required as BR)

Comment 16 Devan Goodwin 2007-04-14 15:07:58 UTC
Sorry for the confusion, still trying to get the hang of building rpms.

Comment 17 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-04-14 16:24:06 UTC
Well, while I don't know if I am doing the right
way to use this, I just typed on the terminal and gets
the following traceback.

[tasaka1@localhost ~]$ wuja

Comment 19 Devan Goodwin 2007-04-26 13:12:24 UTC
python-elementtree (available in FC6) has been removed from Fedora 7, I'm trying
to find out why but have not yet had any luck. Until it is re-added,
re-packaged, or I can find time to rework wuja to rely on a different XML
parsing library it will not work. 

Should I close this ticket and re-open when the elementtree situation is resolved?

Comment 20 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-04-26 13:30:29 UTC

  So it *seems* to work for python 2.5.

Comment 21 Devan Goodwin 2007-04-26 13:46:06 UTC
Many thanks for pointing that out, did not realize the module was in Python 2.5
but renamed.

Will adjust tonight to work with both 2.4 and 2.5 and prepare a proper SRPM.


Comment 22 Devan Goodwin 2007-04-26 23:20:35 UTC
New version modified to use the Python 2.5 elementtree module if it's available:

Assiging to me.

Comment 24 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-04-27 07:56:10 UTC
For 0.0.7-1:

* MUST/SHOULD fix: If you have some reason you don't
                   want to fix, please explain why.
? Question/Suggestion

? %pre entry
  - Would you write %pre section after
    %install section?

* Requires
  - Some missing Requires found.
    Python releated dependencies are not checked by rpmbuild
    automatically, so you have to check it by yourself.
$ grep -h 'import ' `rpm -ql wuja` | sort | uniq
import pynotify  -> notify-python (available on FC6<=)
from egg import trayicon -> gnome-python2-libegg
import gconf -> gnome-python2-gconf
import gtk (and others) -> pygtk2
   ! Just a note:
     Currently I get the following warning of deprecated
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/wuja/ DeprecationWarning: the
module egg.trayicon is deprecated; equivalent functionality can now be found in
pygtk 2.10
  from egg import trayicon

  - While this is a noarch rpm, do you have to set CFLAGS?

* Provides
Provides: wuja = %{version}-%{release}
  - This is not needed and should be removed.

NOTE: Before being sponsored:

This package will be accepted with another few work. 
But before I accept this package, someone (I am a candidate) 
must sponsor you.

Once you are sponsored, you have the right to review other 
submitters' review requests and approve the packages formally. 
For this reason, the person who want to be sponsored (like you) 
are required to "show that you have an understanding 
of the process and of the packaging guidelines" as is described
on :

Usually there are two ways to show this.
A. submit other review requests with enough quality.
B. Do a "pre-review" of other person's review request
   (at the time you are not sponsored, you cannot do
   a formal review)

When you have submitted a new review request or have pre-reviewed other 
person's review request, please write the bug number on this bug report 
so that I can check your comments or review request.

Fedora Extras package review requests which are waiting for someone to
review can be checked on:
NOTE: FE-NEW blockers are now not complete.

Review guidelines are described mainly on:

Comment 25 Devan Goodwin 2007-04-29 20:01:31 UTC
Updated spec file as per the above suggestions. Left the deprecation warning in,
just noticed this myself after upgrading to Fedora 7. Will investigate the
equivalent functionality and change in an upcoming wuja release.

Will read these guidelines and attempt to start submitting some review requests
as soon as I can find some free time.


Comment 26 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-05-13 15:09:37 UTC
ping? If you don't have any packages else to submit,
you can do a pre-review of other persons' review requests.

Comment 27 Devan Goodwin 2007-05-14 02:26:01 UTC
Just went to submit comments for surfraw, but mistakenly had the tab open for a
couple days while working on it here and there. When I submitted someone had
beaten me to it, found all the same problems, and the package maintainer has
already made adjustments. Will try again this week.

Comment 28 Devan Goodwin 2007-05-17 00:42:57 UTC
Submitted a new review request for testoob in bug 240391.

Comment 29 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-05-17 07:56:51 UTC

* This package (wuja) is okay.
* For testoob, it is almost okay.
  - NOTE: for testoob,
    E: testoob non-executable-script
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/testoob/compatibility/ 0644
    - If this script is to be sourced, then this script should not
      have shebang
    - Otherwise (i.e. this script can be executed by user, for example),
      then this should have executable permission (normally 0755).

   For me this seems the latter case (i.e. permission should be changed
   to 0755) because of the comments on this script.

  This package (wuja) is APPROVED by me
Please follow:
from "Get a Fedora Account". I will receive a mail which notices
that you need a sponsor and then I will sponsor you.

Deep freeze for Fedora 7 is set as Thursday (on Boston time,
If you want to make this packaged included into _initial_ Fedora 7

Fedora 7 after Fedora 7 is released when the procedure didn't in
