- package compiles on devel (x86_64) [*]
- no unnecessary BR
- locales properly handled [*]
- not relocatable
- owns all files/directories that it creates, does not take ownership of foreign
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for separate -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- there are no scriptlets, no static code, no libtool/pkgconfig files

- the package compiles and builds into binary rpms on FC6 and rawhide (tested
only on x86_64); generated binary is a noarch so no issues should exist for x86 [*]
- the package runs as advertised [*]

[*] after adding the missing BRs

Sindre, please fix the spec adding the missing BRs and I'll reverify/approve the
package. As a sidenote, in the future I think it would be a good ideaif you
would test your packages using rpmlint and by bulding in mock before submitting

Good, we are almost done. All problems mentioned have been solved. There is one
more left: please preserve the timestamps when installing. This can be done by
adding INSTALL="{__install} -c -p" either to the %configure line or to the "make
install" line.

Additional review bits not touched before
- python libs are properly installed (package follows the guidelines from
- program is a GUI; a desktop file is properly installed for it
- the desktop file respects packaging guidelines (no output from
desktop-file-validate fedora-gtk-recordmydesktop.desktop)

As I see no further blockers, the package is APPROVED. I'll trust you to fix 
preserving of timestamps before importing into CVS.
