Description Daniel Veillard 2008-07-08 13:39:51 UTC
Spec URL:
Libcmpiutil is a library of utility functions for CMPI providers.
The goal is to reduce the amount of repetitive work done in
most CMPI providers by encapsulating common procedures with more
"normal" APIs.  This extends from operations like getting typed
instance properties to standardizing method dispatch and argument checking.

Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2008-07-08 13:42:28 UTC
The only doubt I have is whether this should be
ExclusiveArch: i386 x86_64 ia64
or not. This is used only by libvirt-cim which is available
only on those arches. Since the library might be used by more
software for non-virtualization providers I decided to not
limit the arches.

Successfully builds into binary RPMs for me. Passes rpmlint with no errors. Complies with Fedora packaging guidelines & licensing requirements.
