It will be good if you avoid hardcoding version and name in SOURCE URL

You can do that at time of importing a package. so for now I am approving this.


Comment 5 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-03-12 07:24:01 UTC
From a quick look at -2 spec file it seems
that %{_datadir}/giggle/glade/ is not owned by any package.

Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-03-12 07:36:17 UTC
Oops my eyes missed to catch that.
Thanks for catching that.

Comment 7 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-03-12 07:47:59 UTC
Okay, other things I noticed is that:
* perhaps "AUTHORS" should be added to %doc
* category "Application" (in desktop file) is deprecated and
  should be removed.

Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-03-12 09:08:44 UTC
Looks wiki page
needs some cleanup on Category as not to have Application issue.
