Pinta 0.2 is available. Please update.

Comment 2 Sebastian Dziallas 2010-03-28 17:58:14 UTC
Ayup, you're right! Thanks for the heads-up. Here's the updated package.

Anybody up for a review?

Comment 3 Andrea Musuruane 2010-03-30 13:47:13 UTC
It seems the icons are taken from paintdotnet 3.0. In this case they are not an acceptable content for Fedora because they are licensed under CC-BY-NC-ND.

Please read:

Please verify upstream if needed.

Comment 4 Sebastian Dziallas 2010-03-30 14:29:29 UTC
Thanks for the heads-up! I inquired with upstream early when packaging it and upstream added a line saying "Pinta does not use the Paint.NET logo or icon mentioned above." back then. This is also the reason why I packaged originally a GIT checkout, instead of version 0.1 (which didn't contain this note). Here's the link to the file, which should be in 0.2 now:

Comment 6 Andrea Musuruane 2010-04-18 10:35:39 UTC
Package do not work on 64 bits system. You are wrongly supposing that %{_libdir} is always /usr/lib.

From the Mono guidelines: "Mono installs binaries in %{_libdir}/<package>/bin with symlinks back to /usr/bin.". You didn't use %{_libdir}/<package>/bin but %{_libdir}/<package>.

Please use another name for the icon. Now you use applications-graphics.png and it is too generic and therefore it could conflict with other packages.

You should also add todo.txt to the docs.

You may also want to have a look at the Debian package for patches and other improvements (for example, the desktop file):

Comment 8 Andrea Musuruane 2010-05-04 12:33:42 UTC
Pinta 0.3 is out:

Are you still interested in this review request?

Comment 9 Sebastian Dziallas 2010-05-06 11:38:58 UTC
I've been rotating around here while working out some parts of 'life' as marked here: :)

While I still think that Pinta is a cool application, I might not be able to continue to give it the attention it deserves. If somebody wants to package it, I'm willing to act as co-maintainer, though.
