%Source is no longer valid. The very same file is available as but a newer version has
been released as
Please consider updating %{upstreamid} and %Source before importing


- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines 
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source matches upstream , sha1sum 
7fa4e8a72290c53dedb1eee1f0a144a4ce77a27e  alt-myspell-pl.tar.bz2 (upstream)
7fa4e8a72290c53dedb1eee1f0a144a4ce77a27e  alt-myspell-pl-20060823.tar.bz2 (included)
- the package builds in mock for devel/x86_64, generates a noarch (which is
consistent with the fact that basically it includes only 3 text files)
- the license GPL stated in the tag is one of the four (!) specified in the
archive bundle; the three others are LGPL, MPL (Mozilla Public License) and
Creative Commons ShareAlike v1; I am not sure at the moment which one should be
picked, but I guess GPL is a safe bet. None of the four licenses is included in
the archive, so the rpm does not include them either. Please also see my comment
- there are only 2 files (word lists) + a short doc with instructions and
license clearance, so no need for -doc and no .la, .pc, static files
- no missing BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all files/directories that it creates, does not take ownership of other
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- rpmlint output is silent
- code, not content
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- no need for .desktop file 


Caolan, please consider updating to latest version before importing. And maybe
you can persuade upstream to include the license files in the archive...

Comment: if anyone has objections against using GPL for the license tag, please
do explain your rationale, I am eager to learn. The wiki says just 
    "Alternately, if code is dual licensed, and one of the licenses meets the
open source license criteria, that code can be included in Fedora under the open
source license."
which does not cover the case when several OSI approved licenses are available.
And unfortunately at the moment there is no one on #fedora-extras with proper
knowledge in this area.
I am approving the package anyway because none of the licenses is a blocker and
if needed the tag can be modified later.

Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2007-02-14 10:01:13 UTC
updated to todays release

in this case all of the alternative licenses are available for selection as the
one to use for fedora, I don't mind which. I don't think it really matters which
is selected. LGPL is sort of the default license for the majority of the
dictionaries, so I plumped for that option of the 3.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2007-02-15 16:08:28 UTC
 27654 (hunspell-pl): Build on target fedora-development-extras succeeded.
