Comment 1 Volker Fröhlich 2014-01-18 22:03:44 UTC
The development symlink for libfaifa is missing from the devel package. Upstream should adjust its build system to install the library with executable permissions.

hpav_cfg is under BSD license. Since it compiles into a single binary that is not linked to libfaifa, the package license should be "GPLv2+ and BSD".

The license must be included in the libs package, rather than the main package here, as the libs package can be installed without the main package.

The compiler warnings should be taken care of as well.

Comment 2 Eric Smith 2014-03-17 21:36:23 UTC
Thanks for looking at this.

I'm not completely certain that I understand the "development symlink" comment.  I reported upstream, but my explanation may not be accurate:

I reported the executable permissions issue and added a comment to the spec:

I moved the license and changed the License tag as you suggested.

I believe fixing compiler warnings is out of scope for Fedora packaging.

Updated to latest upstream git.
