Description Jef Spaleta 2007-03-17 03:09:33 UTC
Spec URL:

g3data is used for extracting data from graphs. In publications
graphs often are included, but the actual data is missing, g3data
makes this extracting process much easier.

Comment 1 manuel wolfshant 2007-03-17 22:05:28 UTC

You don't have permission to access /Fedora SRPMS/g3data/g3data.spec on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an
ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Comment 2 Jef Spaleta 2007-03-17 22:39:57 UTC
sorry, permissions are fixed now.

I also realized that i still need to add a desktop file to this spec.
I'll get that done today, and write a comment with the update is ready.


Comment 3 Jef Spaleta 2007-03-18 22:38:00 UTC
Updated srpm and spec

Added desktop entry and new menu icon with permission of the upstream author.


Comment 4 Gianluca Sforna 2007-03-18 22:59:33 UTC
Just received a 404 from the advertised URL. The new one seems to be:

Comment 5 Jef Spaleta 2007-03-18 23:07:09 UTC
yeah I should have caught that, the upstream author notifed me of the new 1.5.1
release and I should have noticed the url change. I've been sitting on a package
for submission from 1.5.0 for awhile. I'll fix it in the sprm update. 

I'll update the specfile now, but I'm going to wait at least a day before I spin
another srpm, just in case there are a couple of other issues i have to fix.  I
already know I need to make a minor adjustment to the pixmap location as well.
is now updated to include the correct upstream urls.

After a quick glance and mock build:
- %buildroot/$BUILDROOT are both used (see the make line)
- RPM_OPT_FLAGS is not used. quote from build log:
+ make
gcc -c -Wall `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0`  main.c
gcc -c -Wall `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0`  sort.c
gcc -c -Wall `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0`  points.c
gcc -c -Wall `pkg-config --cflags gtk+-2.0`  drawing.c
- there are duplicate BuildRequires: pkgconfig (by gtk2-devel), perl-SGMLSpm (by

Comment 8 Jef Spaleta 2007-03-22 06:45:48 UTC
Okay take a look at

i fixed the makefile so that its no longer stripped the binary
and its now using the RPM_OPT_FLAGS settings

cleaned up the spec to use %buildroot consistently

removed the duplicate buildrequires you indicated

fixed the permissions on the manpage as reported by rpmlint
rpmlint now runs clean for for my mock builds.


Comment 9 manuel wolfshant 2007-03-22 15:49:35 UTC
- no output from rpmlint checks (on source or binary)
- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines
- license (GPL ) OK, text in %doc, matches source
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source matches upstream, is latest available version, sha1sum 
033184423798d1d8f192b9c211fba0ec50c47a95  g3data-1.5.1.tar.gz
- package compiles on devel (x86_64)
- no missing BR
- no unnecessary BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- no libtool/pkconfig/static files
owns all directories that it creates
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- program is a GUI, properly installs a .desktop file

- compiles and build happily in mock /FC6 and devel/X86_64
- works as advertised

I see no blockers so package is APPROVED
