also all the desktop files were installed and listed in %files twice and
if the reviewer had tested the package he would have noticed that. Site
note: The reviewer has been made a sponsor 2 weeks later.

Do RH employes have sponsors too? A lot of the bad reviews are done by
RH people and a lot of bad specs come from RH folks. Somebody pointed me
to:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=433678
and I had a quick glance over it before Andreas added his comments:
      * no list of tests that have been run
      * SourceURL is missing
      * I can't even find the source because URL is wrong
      * without the source you cannot check the License tag, md5, etc
      * docs not marked %doc 
      * ... (I'm sure Andreas will spot some more issures)
