1. Might include in %doc:

2. Buildroot should be the default one:
      %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

3. rpmlint says:
rpmlint on units-1.86-3.fc7.src.rpm
W: units summary-ended-with-dot A utility for converting amounts from one unit
to another.

Suggest: remove . at the end of summary.

W: units no-url-tag

Suggest: add a "URL:"

W: units prereq-use /sbin/install-info

Suggest: remove the "Prereq: /sbin/install-info" and replace per
Requires(post): /sbin/install-info
Requires(preun): /sbin/install-info

4. Don't use %makeinstall, instead use 'make DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT install'

5. Possible missing Buildrequires?

Once you have addressed these items (either by making the suggested changes, or
by explaining why they don't make sense), please reassign this review back 
to me, and change the 'fedora-review' flag back to ? for me to take action.

Resetting flags and such per the new offical review guidelines.

Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2007-03-23 13:41:05 UTC
please check units-1.86-5.fc7

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2007-03-24 03:23:06 UTC
Excellent. I see no further blockers... so this package is APPROVED. 

You can go ahead and close this RAWHIDE once it's been pushed out into rawhide. 

Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2007-05-30 03:22:36 UTC
Closing this since it's been checked in and shipped a while back.
