1. You should not use a _ in the name... from the PackageNamingGuidelines:
"When naming packages for Fedora, the maintainer should use the dash '-' as the
delimiter for name parts. The maintainer should NOT use an underscore '_',
a plus '+', or a period '.' as a delimiter." There are some exceptions after that,
do you think this meets one of those? I think it would be nice to use a -

2. The included source seems to already contain the compiled binaries, so the
build says: "make: Nothing to be done for `all'." and uses the included binaries.
Please make a clean source checkout and make sure there are no included binaries.

3. rpmlint says:
E: telescope-server-debuginfo empty-debuginfo-package

Looks like the Makefile strips the binaries. Can you patch it not to do so?

Also, can you confirm it's using RPM_OPT_FLAGS for compiling?

4. Is the versioning right here?
Shouldn't it be:
Then the next version for any package change would be:

Comment 2 Jef Spaleta 2007-03-20 05:39:05 UTC
1) would you prefer telescope-server  or just telescopeserver?

2) I'm an idiot

3) I'll poke at the Makefile
   I'll see if I can patch the makefile to use $RPM_OPT_FLAGS

4) yeah i think i did goof up the release numbering. First time I had to do an
svn pull.


Comment 3 Jef Spaleta 2007-03-20 07:44:53 UTC
Does this fix all the issues? I think its pulling in the RPM_OPT_FLAGS correctly
now, and blanked the LDFLAGS. I've addressed the naming and release numbering.
look in
for the mock build



Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2007-03-20 23:08:52 UTC
(In reply to comment #3): 

Yeah, that appears to solve all the issues I was seeing. 
I don't see any further blockers, so this package is APPROVED. 
Don't forget to close this RAWHIDE once its been imported and built.

Package Change Request
Package Name: stellarium
Updated Fedora Ownders:,

Comment 8 Kevin Fenzi 2007-05-30 03:33:07 UTC
Shouldn't this review request be closed?

Comment 9 Jef Spaleta 2007-05-30 03:42:45 UTC
You'll see from the bug activity that it was closed... the package change request
from comment 7 re-opened the ticket.  I don't know exactly why a change request
for stellarium was put into the telescope-server review ticket. The request has
been processed... so the bug can be re-closed. Feel free to slap Jochen around
with a wet trout for re-opening a review ticket assigned to you.
