Comment 1 Brad Longo 2008-07-13 02:19:22 UTC
I almost forgot.  This is my first package and I am seeking a sponsor.

Comment 2 Casey Dahlin 2008-07-13 16:09:52 UTC
1. You don't need to buildrequires gcc.
2. The Summary doesn't summarize much, and the description isn't very
descriptive. For the description, see if there's a paragraph in the README that
will work.
3. Your first changelog entry mentions some changes to the source. These should
be in a patch file.
4. Source should be specified as a URL to upstream

Comment 3 Casey Dahlin 2008-07-13 17:06:58 UTC
5. Use macros for FHS paths

Comment 4 Brad Longo 2008-07-13 18:46:53 UTC
The changes are made.  Rpm and specfile can be found with the same links still.

Comment 5 Casey Dahlin 2008-07-13 19:10:07 UTC
1. Delete the commented out code
2. --prefix=/usr/ should be --prefix=%{_prefix}
3. Break description up into multiple lines. No line should be longer than 80

Comment 6 Brad Longo 2008-07-13 19:53:02 UTC
The package has is being reworked so I have cancelled the review request.  There
is a stable verion I will work on to get it functional in Fedora.
