Ical is an X Window System based calendar program. Ical will
create/edit/delete entries, create repeating entries, remind you about
upcoming appointments, print and list item occurrences, and allow
shared calendars between different users.

Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-10-13 16:04:43 UTC
Well, for general packaging issues, please refer to

Some random comments for 2.3.3-2:

* Please write the full URL of Source1. Otherwise
  write as a comment where you found Source1.

* Please follow the buildroot tag required for Fedora.

* Please check the license. COPYING.GNU is GPL+.

* Use macros correctly. /usr/share must be %_datadir, for

* stripping binaries by yourself is forbidden because
  this makes debuginfo rpm useless.

* Please choose whether you choose macros or native commands
  For example, while you use %__install, you also use
  perk (can be %__perl), make (can be %__make) and so on.

* Please avoid %makeinstall if possible
  - For this package, adding 'INSTALL="install" -p' option
    to "make install" is preferable because this keeps timestamps
    on almost all instaled files.

* When you use "install" or "cp" command, use "-p" option to
  keep timestamps.

* Desktop files must be installed by "desktop-file-install"
  (BR: desktop-file-utils is needed)
  - Category "Application" is deprecated and should be removed.
