Description: (Taken from the website's "About" page, as well as Wikipedia's explanation of a mind-map.)

Labyrinth is a lightweight mind-mapping tool, written in Python using Gtk and
Cairo to do the drawing. It is intended to be as light and intuitive as
possible, but still provide a wide range of powerful features.

A mind-map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks or other items
linked to and arranged radially around a central key word or idea. It is used
to generate, visualize, structure and classify ideas, and as an aid in study,
organization, problem solving, and decision making.

rpmlint is silent on both source and binary (noarch) RPMs.

Did mock build and found under build.log
*** Icon cache not updated.  After install, run this:
***   gtk-update-icon-cache -f -t /usr/share/icons/hicolor

Not yet approved this package as i would like to know why messages in above
comment occured in build.log

Comment 3 Peter Gordon 2006-11-20 15:42:38 UTC
Parag: The messages in the build.log are there because the Makefile in data/
contains the following block:

> if test -z "$(DESTDIR)"; then \
>        echo "Updating Gtk icon cache."; \
>        $(gtk_update_icon_cache); \
> else \
>        echo "*** Icon cache not updated.  After install, run this:"; \
>        echo "***   $(gtk_update_icon_cache)"; \
> fi

What this does is test that DESTDIR is empty (the default installation directory
would then be used) and run gtk-update-icon-cache only if so. However, we need
the files to be installed into the build root to be grabbed by rpmbuild rather
than installed to the system directory structure, thus are required to use
DESTDIR=%{buildroot} in the make call.

If you'd like, I could patch this out of the Makefile and not show it; but I
believe it is entirely harmless and feel that such a patch would serve no
significant benefit.

Thanks for your time and review!

Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-11-20 16:53:02 UTC
Thanks. Yes then its harmless.

Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-11-20 16:55:55 UTC
Don't Forget to CLOSE this bug as NEXTRELEASE when you finish building this package.

Comment 6 Peter Gordon 2006-11-22 02:36:37 UTC
Thanks for your review and comments. It's built on devel; and FC-5 and FC-6
branches have been requested. 

Comment 7 Peter Gordon 2008-04-03 02:24:22 UTC
Package Change Request
Package Name: labyrinth
New Branches: F-9

Please early-branch for F-9. I'd like to update Fedora's packaging to the
recently-released 0.4 release; but since it introduces a slew of new features
and bug-fixes (and we are in feature freeze), I'd like to keep F-9 (current
devel) at 0.3 until I can be sure that migrating to 0.4 won't pose an issue and
won't break anything, etc.

Thanks. :)

Comment 8 Kevin Fenzi 2008-04-03 20:10:52 UTC
Thanks for thinking of the freeze. ;) 

cvs done.
