I was just reading through the RPM Naming requirements, and it reminded me of
something I was wondering about; is there some kind of naming standard for
KDE/GNOME compoents, like styles, icons, etc.?
I believe most GTK+ styles in Fedora are named gtk-(stylename)-style or
something along those lines, right? In that case, should KDE styles be named
kde-(stylename)-style or something similar?
Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
Test4 is out, Final looms, must have merge!
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/CoreExtrasMerge is the working
page for the merge status. I would like to get merged asap and shake out the
problems and get some builds done before the final freeze.
Please provide input!

Haha...i just realized that creating a package and creating my own
software and package for it are different things :). I thought that in
order to contribute a package to Fedora I have to have my own software,
create a package and submit it through bugzilla.
I may be wrong..or not. Well.. I'm confused.
Building an rpm package is not a big deal, but it's a pretty boring

I don't mind to be a benevolent contributor. The website
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join that somebody gave
me after my first announcement about my software says:
"Make sure that you mention in the 'Review Description' field that this
is your first package, and you are seeking a sponsor. In Fedora Package
Collection, all new contributors must be sponsored"
And I asked for a sponsorship :)

The only thing I want to know is the status of the review : if it's in
progress, done or nobody interested. I don't really care about the time
of the review. I guess any contributor wants to know what's going on.
Thanks for the information that you gave me. Now I better understand the
process of the review.

Manuel, I going to upload new spec file tomorrow and post new links on bugzilla.

Thanks Nigel, that's all I need to know. The package I submitted for the review was my first one, so I know nothing about the process of reviewing.
I would love to create another packages,but I'd rather create one that works. It'd be more useful for people.
Thanks for the links :)
