Comment 1 Christoph Wickert 2010-04-09 22:24:57 UTC
FIX - MUST: $ rpmlint /var/lib/mock/fedora-rawhide-x86_64/result/yad-*
yad.src: W: spelling-error Summary(en_US) dialogs -> dialog, dialog s, dialings
yad.src: W: spelling-error %description -l en_US dialogs -> dialog, dialog s, dialings
yad.src:12: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 1, tab: line 12)
yad.src: W: invalid-url Source0: HTTP Error 404: Not Found
yad.x86_64: W: spelling-error Summary(en_US) dialogs -> dialog, dialog s, dialings
yad.x86_64: W: spelling-error %description -l en_US dialogs -> dialog, dialog s, dialings
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 6 warnings.

The spelling errors can be ignored, "dialogs" is the correct pluram form in American English.
The source URL is valid, tested with spectool
This leaves the mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs warning, which is trivial but should IMO be fixed.

OK - MUST: handles locales properly with %find_lang
N/A - MUST: Every binary RPM package (or subpackage) which stores shared library files (not just symlinks) in any of the dynamic linker's default paths, must call ldconfig in %post and %postun.

Other items:

- What license is this? COPYING is GPLv3, but about.c says it's GPLv2+
- The manpage should not have .gz as extension because we might switch to bz2 or lzma compressed manpages some day
- Please fix the mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs warning.

The only blocker is the license. If you clarify this with upstream, I will approve the package.

Comment 2 Christoph Wickert 2010-05-09 14:35:14 UTC
Any news on this?

Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2010-05-11 22:52:26 UTC
BTW: 0.2.1 is out.

Comment 4 Christoph Wickert 2010-07-11 09:17:19 UTC
Meanwhile 0.3.0 is out and the license question is answered, all files are GPLv3+ now. Please update your package so I can have a look over it.

If I don't hear back within two weeks, I will close this review.

Comment 5 Christoph Wickert 2010-07-16 14:43:43 UTC
As per I'm now closing this review request.
