Description Peter Lemenkov 2010-10-01 11:01:45 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: Lisp Flavoured Erlang, is a lisp syntax front-end to the Erlang
compiler. Code produced with it is compatible with "normal" Erlang
code. An LFE evaluator and shell is also included.

One of the requirements ("soft-dependency") for erlang-rebar

koji scratch build for F-14:

Sulaco ~/rpmbuild/SPECS: rpmlint ../RPMS/ppc/erlang-lfe-0.6.1-1.fc12.ppc.rpm 
erlang-lfe.ppc: E: explicit-lib-dependency erlang-stdlib
erlang-lfe.ppc: E: no-binary
erlang-lfe.ppc: W: only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 2 errors, 1 warnings.

All these messages may be omitted (first one is a false positive due to "lib" substring in the name of one of the runtime dependency, the rest are due to fact that arch-independent data is installed into arch-dependent directory)

Comment 1 Jochen Schmitt 2010-10-15 17:06:04 UTC
Some prereview comments:

1,) A better explanation of how you have generate the upstram archive may be helpful

2.) It may be nice, if you can create emacs-* subpackages.

Comment 2 Jochen Schmitt 2010-10-15 17:12:39 UTC
Item 1 has been clarified for me.

> 2.) It may be nice, if you can create emacs-* subpackages.

Yes, indeed. I'll try to provide them (unfortunately I'm not an emacs user, so I can't test them).

Unfortunately that was harder that I thought initially. So I'd rather to postpone the creation of (x)emacs sub-packages until someone well-familiar with (x)emacs will step in and help me with it.

Comment 5 Tim Niemueller 2010-10-31 19:14:38 UTC
I'll take it. I'm using emacs daily, and though I'm not profound in writing code for it, I'll have a look anyway. Maybe I can help out with some experience from emacs-lua.

Patch to create emacs packages

This patch adds sub-packages for the Emacs major mode that is included in the package. From a short test the mode seems to work fine in Emacs. The patch also includes inconsistent macro usage. Please apply and try and upload the new version then somewhere for the final review. From a first glance looks good so far.

be avoided in the package
