OK	license is open source-compatible. License text included in package.
OK	latest version is being packaged.
OK	BuildRequires are proper.
OK	compiler flags are appropriate.
OK	%clean is present.
OK	package builds in mock (i386).
OK	package installs properly
OK	debuginfo package looks complete.
OK	final provides and requires looks sane.
OK	shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths, ldconfig is run.
OK	owns the directories it creates.
OK	doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
OK	no duplicates in %files.
OK	file permissions are appropriate.
OK	scriptlets are present and they are sane.
OK	code, not content.
OK	documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
OK	%docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
OK	no libtool .la are packaged.
OK	not a GUI app.


BAD	headers and .so are in devel subpackage, but the dependency on the lib
subpackage is not correct

BAD	not suggested build root is used.

BAD	rpmlint is NOT silent.
