Description cdonatsch 2010-05-30 22:00:54 UTC
This is my first package, so I need a sponsor and a review.

Spec URL:

Spek helps to analyze your audio files by showing their spectrogram.
Spectrograms are used to analyze the quality of audio files, you can easily
detect lossy re-encodes, web-rips and other badness by just looking at the
spectrogram. Spek uses GStreamer to read audio files which means it supports
most file formats you can think of.

As I've been told, this package is pretty useless without dependencies on gstreamer-plugin-base and good packages. So here are the new versions.

Looks sane on a quick look and builds fine on koji.

Comment 3 Alexander Kojevnikov 2010-06-27 01:45:34 UTC
In the meantime Spek 0.5 has been released:

Christophe, did you perform some unofficial reviews?

Be aware of the following guideline:

Dependency on gtk2 and gstreamer library SONAMEs is automatic already. The explicit versions are much lower than what is available with Fedora. And gstreamer-plugins-good requires gstreamer-plugins-base. So, you should reduce these explicit Requires to just gstreamer-plugins-good with a comment that this app strictly needs this collection of plugins.

Since you also omitted the BuildRoot definition, you could drop further stuff:

Comment 6 Alexander Kojevnikov 2010-07-18 09:17:13 UTC
Just FYI, Spek 0.6 no longer depends on GStreamer, it now uses FFmpeg libraries:

Comment 7 Conrad Meyer 2010-07-26 06:25:16 UTC
Which means it's a candidate for RPMFusion, not Fedora. Might as well close this review...

I'd like to see this land in RPMFusion, though.
