Description chris desjardins 2010-06-04 22:31:54 UTC
Spec URL:
Bayesian graphical models using MCMC. rjags is an R interface to the JAGS MCMC library

Comment 1 Pierre-YvesChibon 2010-06-04 23:01:34 UTC
As a quick look at the spec:
- The URL is not correct
- The BuildRequires to tetex-latex has to be updated
- The Requires for post and postun can be removed
- you might want to change the Requires from R to R-core 
- You have a double dependency on R in your BuildRequires 
- The comment on the %install is incorrect (also in %files)

The rest look correct, I will do a deeper pre-review (as I can not sponsor you) later.

Comment 2 chris desjardins 2010-06-04 23:26:48 UTC
I have made the changes to my *.spec file and have updated new versions of the *.spec and *.src.rpm files. They can be obtained by clicking my original urls in the description box.

Comment 3 chris desjardins 2010-06-04 23:28:12 UTC
I will update the *.spec file with new version and a changelog. Sorry!

Comment 4 chris desjardins 2010-06-05 00:09:47 UTC
Here is the new *.spec file and the new *src.rpm addressing Pierre's issues.

! Does not build properly

I believe you are missing at least one BuildRequires

Comment 6 chris desjardins 2010-06-05 13:56:37 UTC
This should build now.

However, this package requires a package not yet packaged in Fedora. So I think unless you're willing to try and build JAGS[1] then it won't build as it's an interface between R and JAGS.
