Description Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2008-06-13 11:00:46 UTC
Spec URL:
GL2PS is a C library providing high quality vector output for any
OpenGL application. The main difference between GL2PS and other
similar libraries is the use of sorting algorithms capable of handling
intersecting and stretched polygons, as well as non manifold objects.
GL2PS provides advanced smooth shading and text rendering, culling of
invisible primitives, mixed vector/bitmap output, and much more...

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-14 19:53:42 UTC
builds fine; rpmlint says:
  W: invalid-license GL2PS
This is OK; the GL2PS license was recently added to the Licensing page and
rpmlint simply hasn't caught up.
  gl2ps-static.x86_64: W: no-documentation
Not a problem.

I'm not really sure why a static package is needed, but that's up to you.

This package is kind of odd, lacking any kind of build system.  It seems to me
that what you have is fine.  There are a few options which you might consider
turning on, like ZLIB and PNG support, though.  Again, completely up to you.

Unfortunately I can't comment on the Polish documentation at all.

The BuildRoot is incorrect; it must at least include %{release}, and should be
one of the recommend versions from

* source files match upstream:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* summary is OK.
* description is OK.
* dist tag is present.
X build root lacks %{release}.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* compiler flags are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
* package installs properly.
* debuginfo package looks complete.
* rpmlint has acceptable complaints.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   gl2ps = 1.3.2-1.fc10

   gl2ps-devel = 1.3.2-1.fc10
   gl2ps = 1.3.2-1.fc10

   gl2ps-static = 1.3.2-1.fc10
   gl2ps-devel = 1.3.2-1.fc10

* %check is not present; no test suite upstream.
* shared libraries installed; ldconfig is properly called.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* scriptlets OK (ldconfig)
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -doc subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* headers are in the -devel package.
* no pkgconfig files.
* static libraries are in the -static package.
* no libtool .la files.

Honestly my only real complaint is the BuildRoot, which is a trivial fix. 
Please fix it when you check in.

Comment 3 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2008-06-17 16:19:03 UTC
I'll fix that and talk to upstream about at least a Makefile if not a
full-fledged build-system. Thanks for the review.
