Description Damien Durand 2007-04-03 21:28:11 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: Lostirc is a simple, yet very useful IRC-client. It has features such as tab-autocompletion, multiple server support, automatic joining of 
servers/channels and DCC sending which should cover the needs of most 
people. The client is 100% keyboard-controllable, and uses the gtkmm GUI

Spec file looks good (quick look), expect a full review shortly

> Spec file looks good (quick look), expect a full review shortly

Errr... Seems I lied here, I've been rushed off my feet with an exam, I've got 
a draft review ready though (on another installation).

One issue that I can remember is the source0 url needs to be altered to{name}/%{name}-%{version}.tar.gz

No need to bump for this at the moment, please wait for my full review in a 
couple of days.

You should add a BR for pkgconfig
N.B. as gtkmm24-devel requires glib2-devel which inturn requires pkgconfig it's
up to you, I'd nearly be tempted to leave it out.

* Source URL needs to be changed (per Comment #2)

* A FYI: I tried building for EPEL but it failed, you may wish to consider
talking to the gtkmm maintainer and asking if they'd like to consider building
for EPEL if you wish to see you package included. (Not required to get in Fedora

Overall, great package... APPROVED

New Package CVS Request
Package Name: lostirc
Short Description: Simple IRC client for X11
Branches: FC-6 FC-7

Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-06-01 20:40:18 UTC
CVS is done... note that lostirc was orphaned before this, you might need to
clean out the FC-6 directory first.

Comment 7 Damien Durand 2007-06-13 09:25:52 UTC
Built and imported ;-)
