Comment 2 Mario Blättermann 2015-10-26 18:57:02 UTC
Some initial issues:

The project page has been moved to The old URL is still reachable, but will be redirected to the new one.

Since we ship GTK 3.16 and newer, existing theming engines are unusable. So also the gtk-unico-engine won't work anymore. Please test the behavior, maybe the gtk3 part is now obsolete. On the other hand, the appropriate Ubuntu PPA is active, in the last days the packages have been updated for Wily Werewolf, which already ships GTK 3.16.

Please also put the Gnome Shell stuff in an extra package while keeping only index.theme in the base package. Otherwise all users will get the shell theme, regardless of the targeted desktop environment.

%package plank
Summary:        %{theme_name} for plank
Group:          User Interface/Desktops
Requires:       %{name} = %{version}-%{release}, plank

Plank handles its themes independently from the GTK3 theme. The -plank subpackage shouldn't require the GTK theme at all.


License files should go into %license.

Comment 5 Mario Blättermann 2016-03-24 20:12:55 UTC
Any news here...? Paper ist still maintained, but du to some significant changes (no GTK engines anymore, autotools build system etc.) it is absolutely needed to update your package before someone can do a review.
