Comment 1 Jochen Schmitt 2007-01-29 17:21:51 UTC
+ License look fine.
+ Tarball matchs with upstream.
+ Nameing seams ok.
+ Local build works fine
+ Gaming is running on my machine.
+ Installing and uninstalling works fine.
+ Build on mock works fine.
+ rpmlint is quite on source and binary package.
+ rpmlint is quite on install package.

- Please include license material to the docs.

Comment 2 Christopher Stone 2007-01-29 19:48:15 UTC
What the hell?  I was reviewing this package?  Why did you remove my name from
the assigned field?

Comment 3 Christopher Stone 2007-01-29 19:48:53 UTC
Here is my review:
- rpmlint output clean
- package named according to package naming guidelines
- spec filename matches %{name}
- package meets packaging guidelines
- licensed with open source compatible license
- license field matches actual license
- license text included in %doc
- spec written in American english
- spec legible
- sources match upstream
- successfully compiles and builds on FC-6 x86_64
- all build dependencies listed in BR
- no locales
- no shared libraries
- not relocatable
- package owns all directories it creates
X package does not pull in all directories it uses
- no duplicates in %files
- file permissions set properly
- contains proper %clean
- macro usage consistent
- contains code
- no large documentation
- files in %doc do not affect runtime
- no header files or static libraries
- no pkgconfig files
- no library files with suffix
- no devel subpackage required
- no libtool archives
- contains proper .desktop file
- does not own files or directories owned by other packages

==== MUST FIX ====
- Shouldnt this require hicolor-icon-theme?

==== SHOULD FIX ====
- Use as URL
- inform upstream of 64bit compiler warnings

==== QUESTIONS ====
- patch seems to include license-change.txt but its not included in %doc?
- patch seems littered with ^Ms, not an issue, but difficult to read

Comment 4 Christopher Stone 2007-01-29 19:49:42 UTC
Re-assigning bug to me because I was reviewing it before Jochen so rudely
removed my name from asigned feild.

Comment 5 Christopher Stone 2007-01-29 19:51:29 UTC
Readding alias ... Jochen why did you remove the alias too?

Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2007-01-29 19:59:01 UTC
I'm guessing that what happened was that Jochen got a mid-air collision and
decided to completely ignore it and overwrite my changes to this bug....

Comment 7 Christopher Stone 2007-01-31 02:49:24 UTC
Is it easy to patch this so that high scores go in /var/games/smashteroid?

Comment 8 Hans de Goede 2007-01-31 08:50:04 UTC
Jochen, Christopher, both thanks for your review.

I need to send all my changes upstream, if I get around to it I'll fix all the
warnings (also the non 64 bit ones) before doing so.

> ==== QUESTIONS ====

Yes, a must-fix actually as Jochen has correctly identified.

> - patch seems littered with ^Ms, not an issue, but difficult to read
Thats what you get when you take dos source code and port it to Linux with a
patch :)

(In reply to comment #7)
> Is it easy to patch this so that high scores go in /var/games/smashteroid?

Doable yes, easy unfortunately not. Not worth the work IMHO. A patch is ofcourse

Here is a new version:
* Wed Jan 31 2007 Hans de Goede <j.w.r.degoede> 1.11-2
- Not only create but actually package license-change.txt
- Add Requires: hicolor-icon-theme
- Use: as URL

Go get it here:
