Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-07-21 05:06:41 UTC
Ah! package has latest update in F-12 but not in F-13 and devel.

Please first build latest release in F-13 and devel

1) remove old Obsoletes and Provides from spec. See

2)timestamps should be preserved.Use INSTALL="install -p" when installing to
preserve timestamps.

3) I will suggest this pacakge to follow current packaging guidelines and
remove buildroot, %clean section and cleaning of build root in %install    

4) Don't use makeinstall See

5) Please follow

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2010-07-21 15:57:10 UTC

+ package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
+ specfile is properly named, is cleanly written
+ Spec file is written in American English.
+ Spec file is legible.
+ dist tag is present.
+ license is open source-compatible.
+ License text is included in package.
+ %doc is present.
- BuildRequires are proper
+ %clean is present which is not needed now.
+ package installed properly.
+ Macro use appears rather consistent.
+ no headers or static libraries.
+ no .pc file present.
+ no -devel subpackage
+ no .la files.
+ translations are available
+ Does owns the directories it creates.
+ no scriptlets present.
+ no duplicates in %files.
+ file permissions are appropriate.
+ Desktop file installed correctly.
+ GUI application

Just to Note here, It will be good if this package start using following guidelines in fedora.
For F-13 and above then please follow
1) buildroot should be removed
2) %clean not needed
3) cleaning of buildroot at start of %install also not needed

I think I missed few points
1) BuildRequires: automake 
is not needed
2) non-executable-script rpmlint error message can be solved by adding
for lib in %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/%{name}/ %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/%{name}/; do
 sed '/\/usr\/bin\/python/d' $lib > $ &&
 touch -r $lib $ &&
 mv $ $lib

to end of %install section.

See the successful scratch build when fixed above 2 issues at

I installed this new changes and looks package is working fine.

Can you please fix above 2 issues?
