Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-01-31 18:31:24 UTC
Spec URL:
gnome-screensaver-frogs is an addon screen saver for GNOME Screensaver
that provides a slideshow of freely distributable frog pictures.

Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2007-02-13 18:36:57 UTC
You might want to add -p to the install lines, in order to preserve the original
file timestamps between rebuilds.
Also, I see no point in having the %{?dist} tag for this 6MB noarch package, as
it would be better to hardlink it across Fedora releases.

Oh, and... is this package for real? :-)
If it is, I'll take the time to look at it closer and do a proper review ;-)

Comment 2 Matthias Saou 2007-02-25 21:53:07 UTC
Hint 1 : In GNOME screensaver, you can select the "Pictures folder" screensaver,
which should allow you to trivially have a slideshow of all pictures in a given
directory, which should pretty much do what you want, without requiring an
entire package.

Hint 2 : The "Pictures folder" screensaver seems pretty broken and/or limited
since it doesn't seem to be configurable from the GUI, nor can one figure out
where the pictures should go in by default.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-05-24 17:59:43 UTC
So, yes, I'm for real. I'm aware of the Pictures folder, but I wanted to make
something so other people could get a set of Frog pictures as a screensaver.

This is freely redistributable content which enhances the Fedora user experience.


Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2007-07-28 15:27:35 UTC
Is this one really being reviewed?  I see no comments from the person it's
assigned to.

Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-07-28 16:23:57 UTC
I'd really like a review on this. Should take about 12 seconds.

It's the first time I see several licenses listed in the License tag, but since
all of them are GPL compatible and you are the expert in this area, I'll trust you.
- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines
- license (CC Attribution 2.0/CC Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0/Public Domain ) OK,
text in %doc, matches source, full list of files + corresponding licenses included
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source matches upstream
- nothing to compile, the package is just a collection of pictures
- no missing BR
- no unnecessary BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all directories that it creates
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok [*]
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- only content (pictures)
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- the included .desktop file is installed under the gnome screenserver hierarchy

[*] I would have preferred %defaultattr(-,root,root,-)


Comment 8 Lubomir Kundrak 2007-07-30 09:40:49 UTC
I apologize for not reviewing the package for such long time. This is a really
big and complex package that's why it took so long for me.

What was not clear to me was the copyright/license for each of the the photos.
It is not clear who authored which picture, and what is the copying policy
for it.

Second one was kind of a "pseudo-security" issue -- I haven't look at it yet,
but are you sure none of the pictures contain EXIF thumbnail of an uncropped 
or unprocessed photo?

Comment 9 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-07-30 12:01:10 UTC
There's a README file, which lists the copyright/license for each of the photos,
and the author.

As to the EXIF thumbnail, I didn't even think to check. I'll do that before

Comment 10 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-08-01 19:25:49 UTC
One of the pictures did have a "PreviewImage" on it, but it was easy enough to

Did my own CVS for this package:

Package Name: gnome-screensaver-frogs
Short Description: GNOME Screensaver Slideshow of Frogs
Branches: FC-6 F-7 EL-4 EL-5

Built too.
