Taking this review.

Comment 2 Neal Gompa 2016-08-25 04:19:23 UTC
Initial issues:

* Not properly set up for pre-release. It is perfectly acceptable to package up snapshot pre-releases, provided that the guidelines are followed for versioning them:

* URL is invalid. While it does properly redirect, I would strongly prefer to see the correct URL set here, which I understand it to be ""

* Source0 is invalid. This is a serious problem. Now, since you're currently using snapshots, you should follow the guidelines for snapshot URLs, as mentioned here:

A suggestion: You can set the source URL to "{commit0}/%{name}-%{shortcommit0}.tar.gz", which will work with spectool to produce a proper snapshot. You'll need to add "-n %{name}-%{commit0}" to the %setup invocation, also.

No response in months, marking as DEADREVIEW.

Comment 4 Simon Fels 2017-03-31 17:08:05 UTC
I've updated the spec file and produced a new SRPM with all necessary changes to fit Neals review comments.

Please open a new review request and close this one as a duplicate of it.

Comment 6 Neal Gompa 2017-09-01 17:53:47 UTC
This has been obsoleted by the re-implementation of this code in snapd[1].
