Description Izhar Firdaus 2008-12-26 08:50:47 UTC
Spec URL:

The Compiz Project brings 3D desktop visual effects that improve
usability of the X Window System and provide increased productivity
though plugins and themes contributed by the community giving a
rich desktop experience.

This package contains a simplified gui configuration tool to
configure Compiz plugins and the composite window manager.

Comment 1 Fabian Affolter 2009-04-20 07:45:08 UTC
Just some quick comments on your spec file.  I did only a 'look-at-it' review.

- License is GPLv2+ (or (at your option) any later version) not GPLv2.  Mentioned in the LICENSE file and the source header.  PKG-INFO says GPL. 
- Is there no URL for Source0? If not, can you please describe the generation of the source tarball as mentioned in the guidelines.
- Isn't 'BR: gettext' a duplicate?  'intltool' requires 'gettext' already.
- INSTALL says '...depends on Python and PyGTK'.  
- Isn't 'Requires: hicolor-icon-theme' is missing?
- '--vendor="fedora"' is no longer needed for new packages

Version 0.8.3 was released some weeks ago.;a=commit;h=2deb7e7194ddae144c98ea2cbef7e40f2d468b33

It's not really needed but it's a close following of the packging guidelines that say: "If the package includes translations, add BuildRequires: gettext."

> - INSTALL says '...depends on Python and PyGTK'.

No, because pygtk requires gtk2 requires hicolor-icon-theme.

Wow, there's been no response to review commentary in nearly eleven months; I guess I'll close this soon if there's no further response.

Comment 4 Mohd Izhar Firdaus Ismail 2009-11-13 03:53:59 UTC

sorry i totally forgotten i submitted this >.<

seems like i need to update it to 0.8.2 first ..

Comment 5 Mohd Izhar Firdaus Ismail 2009-11-14 06:30:39 UTC
added 0.8.2 (because compiz in fedora is 0.8.2)

- update to 0.8.2
- added requires pygtk
- changed license to GPLv2+
- gdk.threads_init caused simple-ccsm 0.8.2 to hang, remove it for now
