Need Sponsor

Comment 2 Kevin Fenzi 2007-12-02 18:25:37 UTC
Adding the FE-NEEDSPONSOR blocker here so sponsors can find your request easier. 

You may want to take a look at:

Do you have other packages to submit at this time? Or can you go do some
'pre-reviews' of other pending submissions to show you know the guidelines?

Comment 3 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-12-18 17:33:14 UTC
Well, for general packaging guidelines you can refer to

* Please consider to use %{?dist} tag.

Some random comments:

* The license tag "GPL" is not valid for Fedora. Please refer to

* "Requires: Xaw3d libXaw libXtst" are usually not needed
  as rpmbuild checks the dependencies for libraries and adds
  them as Requires, which should automatically pull those rpms.

* Your srpm does not build.
  At least imake is missing from BuildRequires.

* setup is not quiet (You can check your srpm beforehand by
  using rpmlint [in rpmlint rpm] as $ rpmlint *rpm )

* Please check if your build honors Fedora specific compilation
  flags (please check the section "Compiler flags" of
  "Guidelines" wiki)

* %{_datadir}/X11/app-defaults is already owned by libXt and this
   package should not own this directory.
  ! Note
    When you write
    This includes the directory %_datadir/X11/app-defaults itself
    and all files/directories/etc under %_datadir/X11/app-defaults.

* And perhaps installing files under %_libdir/X11/app-defaults is
  not desired.

* Files under %_mandir are automatically tagged as %doc.

* Also please fix %changelog.

! Note:
  Please change the release number of your spec/srpm each time
  when you modify them.
