Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2007-11-08 02:25:26 UTC
I suspect mention of appletalk has scared off reviewers, and I haven't hardware
to test this against in over a decade, but it's a trivial package (one shell
script!) so let's take a look.

"Builds" OK on rawhide.

rpmlint says:

  cups-appletalk.noarch: W: invalid-license GPL
More specificity is needed.  The source doesn't include any license statement
but the README file says "gpl v2" so it looks like you should use "GPLv2" as the
License: tag.  However, see below.

  cups-appletalk.noarch: E: only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
Well, you have to put it where cups stores its backends, so this is OK.

Where does the tarball come from?  The URL just seems to point to a copy of the
shell script; is there no actual upstream site?  And what's at the URL seems to
be a newer version, which actually has a license statement that specifies
GPLv2+.  Not sure what's up there, or which to believe.

No reply in over two months; I will close this ticket soon if there is no response.

Still no response; closing.
