Summary0000199: include .spec to build RPMs
DescriptionIncluding a .spec to build RPMs (on Fedora, SUSE, etc.) makes the application easier to build and install. If you decide to use the attached .spec file (a rough draft), I will clean it up first.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hi. Yes, I will be glad to use the spec file you provided, so if you are ok to clean it, you are welcome. Will include it as soon as it's ready.

I reckon this needs feedback (the cleaned up spec file) from the original reporter?

Hi Andrewz

Could you look into getting the cleaned .spec file back to us so we can include it, otherwise we'll need to close this as we haven't had any feedback since October.

New version attached. Of course this is just a starting place. For example, non-Fedora distros may want to add {%if} macros to specify distribution-specific changes.

Acknowledging for 0.7.1.

I have updated the spec file in svn rev. 2762.

However, we have recently added a man directory, as well as some more translations, and some more luma files. These are not, AFAICT, part of the spec file.

Is there a way to solve this automatically, or does it require manual changes every time something is changed? Could you perhaps register for svn access and update directly?

You can change much of the %files section to use wildcards such as


Actually I should have done that, but I no longer use kdenlive, so I would appreciate someone else taking over.

Here's a helpful guide to building cross-distro .spec files [^]

OpenSUSE even provides a farm to build them

Hey, I am excited. How to build the SPEC? To you build them during make?
Could you describe in more details, maybe using a page on the web server?

Maybe I can help, as I used to build packages for various RPM distros before switching to Debian for my sake.

Also, who is charge of building RPMs?
Do we provide daily builds (this would be preferable).
Etc ... All these questions need some organization.

Patch commited.

It is not complete, but I am not prepared to do anything more about it.
