Comment 1 František Dvořák 2013-11-24 22:50:25 UTC

my observations of the packaging:

1) there were many changes in native package (source URL, descriptions, new version - currently 1.3.0, patches, build flags, ...).

MinGW packages should follow the native packages as closely as possible. With the new version and different patches, it will probably need a lot changes...

2) I guess the macros mingw_build_win32 and mingw_build_win64 are not needed?

3) having just two static subpackages mingw32-flac-static and mingw64-flac-static would simplify the packaging (= merging C and C++ static subpackages), but that's mere suggestion

Steve, are you still planning to package that? -- František

Comment 3 František Dvořák 2014-01-11 23:29:44 UTC
Closing this request as inactive. 

I'll take the package and submit a new review. Feel free to review the new request or add comments.
