Description Alec Leamas 2008-11-23 17:51:11 UTC
A simple daemon which manages a directory of vcards reflecting the contents of a address book in evolution data server. On user level, it's related to bug 471575 - this part makes vcards available for the extension. However, there are no technical dependencies.

Source RPM:

Some notes for 0.2-1.61:

* Versioning / creating tarball
  - If you want to rebase source tarball on svn repository,
    please follow:
    * To create tarball:
    * For versioning:

* BR (BuildRequires)
  - This package does not build without "BR: cvs"

  - I guess "BR: gettext-devel" can be changed to "BR: gettext"
    and "BR: subversion" is not needed (once the tarball is created)
    (koji scratch build succeeds)

  - When perl module related packages are needed for BR, please avoid
    to use direct name of the package but use virtual name which
    the needed rpm provides:
    (i.e. change to "BuildRequires: perl(XML::Parser)"

  - "BR: glib2-devel" is redundant because gtk2-devel requires glib2-devel.

* %configure usage
  - "--prefix=%{_prefix}" or so is not needed for %configure
  ! You can check what %configure actually does by
    $ rpm --eval %configure

* desktop-file-utils usage
  - "desktop-file-validate" must be called for the files installed
    under %buildroot (i.e after "make install")

* Keeping timestamps
  - Please consider to use
make install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT INSTALL="install -p"
    to keep timestamps on installed files.
    This method usually works for Makefiles generated by recent

* Documents
  ! This software is actually under GPLv2 (from the source codes),
    however "COPYING" file is GPLv3 text.

  - "ABOUT-NLS" is not useful for this package because this
    (usually) shows general information for transformation.

* Desktop files
  - Usually desktop files should be installed under %_datadir/applications.
    Would you check if %_datadir/vcards-evo-daemon is the desired
    directory for desktop files to be installed for this package?
