Description Mario Blättermann 2015-02-15 11:14:25 UTC
Spec URL:
NovProg is a tool to graph your progress in writing a NaNoWriMo style novel.
You enter your wordcount and it updates a graph showing you how much progress
you have made. It also shows you how far you are through your daily goal,
and your total goal. Mousing over a bar in the graph will show a tooltip
with that day’s wordcount.

Comment 1 Mario Blättermann 2015-02-15 11:23:30 UTC
Scratch build:

rpmlint is quite silent, t complains about the missing man page, but the software doesn't accept any command line options, so it is not really needed.

Morover, the appdata file seems to be incorrect:

novprog.i686: E: invalid-appdata-file /usr/share/appdata/novprog.appdata.xml
appdata file is not valid, check with appdata-validate

After checking the file with the command in our guidelines [1], I get:

$ appstream-util validate-relax --nonet *xml
novprog.appdata.xml: OK

But appdata-validate is even less relaxed:

$ appdata-validate *xml
novprog.appdata.xml 4 problems detected:
• tag-missing           : <updatecontact> is not present
• attribute-invalid     : <screenshot> width did not match specified
• attribute-invalid     : <screenshot> height did not match specified
• style-invalid         : Not enough <p> tags for a good description

I wouldn't recognize it as a blocker, although the file isn't *fully* canonical referring to Freedesktop's appstream specification.

Taking this for a full review.

Comment 3 MartinKG 2015-02-17 16:06:13 UTC
Note: Directories without known owners: /usr/share/novprog

your package owns the directory /usr/share/novprog/translations/, but /usr/share/novprog stay unowned. Please add both to %files (with %dir).
