Comment 2 Xavier Lamien 2007-06-19 01:00:38 UTC
since last comment this bug didn't have any reponse from the reporter so far.
If no changes happened, i'll close this bug within a week.

Nuno, As you started review this pacakge please, set the flag 'fedora-review' to
? and remove the block FE-NEW.


Comment 3 Nuno Santos 2007-06-19 14:05:17 UTC
This package is stalled due to unresolved packaging dependencies.
Setting fedora-review=?, removing block.

Comment 4 Xavier Lamien 2007-08-05 19:13:28 UTC
those unresolved packages dependencie's bugs should be paste in dependencies
block below.
That's avoid confusion for any reviewer.

Comment 5 Nuno Santos 2007-09-27 18:14:16 UTC
I'm closing the review request, this will be repackaged differently at a later
time to solve some of the issues mentioned above.
