Description Ian Burrell 2007-08-29 18:31:06 UTC
Spec URL:

libconfig is a simple library for manipulating structured
configuration files. This file format is more compact and more
readable than XML. And unlike XML, it is type-aware, so it is not
necessary to do string parsing in application code.

Libconfig is very compact — just 25K for the stripped C shared library
(one-fifth the size of the expat XML parser library) and 39K for the
stripped C++ shared library. This makes it well-suited for
memory-constrained systems like handheld devices.

The library includes bindings for both the C and C++ languages. It
works on POSIX-compliant UNIX systems (GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris,
FreeBSD) and Windows (2000, XP and later).

Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-09-13 09:03:32 UTC
For 1.1.3-1:

* rpmlint
  - First please check your rpms by rpmlint before submitting
    to review request.
libconfig.i386: E: info-files-without-install-info-postin
libconfig.i386: E: info-files-without-install-info-postun
libconfig.i386: E: library-without-ldconfig-postin /usr/lib/
libconfig.i386: E: library-without-ldconfig-postun /usr/lib/
libconfig.i386: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/libconfig-1.1.3/AUTHORS
libconfig.i386: E: library-without-ldconfig-postin /usr/lib/
libconfig.i386: E: library-without-ldconfig-postun /usr/lib/
libconfig-devel.i386: W: no-documentation
   For this package, the rpmlint complaint above must all be fixed
   (for this package, info file should be moved to -devel subpackage).

* Static archive
  - Please remove static archives and pass "--disable-static" option to %configure.

* Documents
  - File "INSTALL" is for people who want to build this package by themselves
    and not needed for people who use rpm for installing this package.
    (also check the section "Documentation" of

  - And please also check if "README" file is needed.

  - File "ChangeLog" contains the useful info for developers and
    should be added to -devel subpackage.

* pkgconfig .pc file
  - A package which contains pkgconfig .pc file must have
    "Requires: pkgconfig". Check:

* Timestamp
  - I recommend
make install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT INSTALL="install -p"
    to keep timestamp on the installed header files and
    info file. This method usually work for packages
    using recent Makefile.
