Spec URL:

Hi all,

I just finished packaged acgvision-agent. Could anyone review my package so that I could get it onto Fedora repositories?

ACGVision is a monitoring sofware (like nagios) and this is the client software.

It's my really first fedora package (and RPM)so please tell me about anything s going wrong with my package.
