Comment 1 Susi Lehtola 2009-05-06 14:23:53 UTC
- Buildroot is obsolete. Use
 %(mktemp -ud %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-XXXXXX)

rpmlint output is clean.

MUST: The spec file for the package is legible and macros are used consistently. OK
MUST: The package must be named according to the Package Naming Guidelines. OK
MUST: The spec file name must match the base package %{name}. OK
MUST: The package must be licensed with a Fedora approved license and meet the  Licensing Guidelines. OK

MUST: The License field in the package spec file must match the actual license. NEEDSFIX
- There is no mention of a license in the package!

MUST: The sources used to build the package must match the upstream source, as provided in the spec URL. NEEDSFIX
- Source url is missing!

MUST: The package MUST successfully compile and build into binary rpms. OK
MUST: The spec file MUST handle locales properly. OK

MUST: Optflags are used and time stamps preserved. NEEDSFIX
- Time stamps are lost in install and in character set conversion.

MUST: A package must own all directories that it creates or require the package that owns the directory. OK
MUST: Files only listed once in %files listings. OK
MUST: Debuginfo package is complete. N/A
MUST: Permissions on files must be set properly. OK
MUST: Clean section exists. OK
MUST: Large documentation files must go in a -doc subpackage. N/A
MUST: All relevant items are included in %doc. Items in %doc do not affect runtime of application. OK

MUST: Desktop files are installed properly. ~OK
- Vendor tag is incorrect. In fact there shouldn't be any, but this can't be changed due to compatibility reasons.

MUST: No file conflicts with other packages and no general names. OK
MUST: Buildroot cleaned before install. OK
SHOULD: %{?dist} tag is used in release. OK
SHOULD: If the package does not include license text(s) as separate files from upstream, the packager should query upstream to include it. OK
SHOULD: The package builds in mock. OK

Comment 6 Parag Nemade 2010-01-02 07:02:23 UTC
Thanks, I thought previous owner already fixed this package. I got it in June 2009 but was not knowing that time about this review. Will work on this on Monday.

Comment 7 Parag Nemade 2010-01-05 06:41:13 UTC
please wait till Friday as I am checking if this package can be retired from Fedora as stardict looks providing same functionality and pydict code is having old function calls which are deprecated now.

Comment 8 Parag Nemade 2010-02-08 09:41:35 UTC
Officially Retired this Package now.
