Review of cln:

Rpmlint tests:
cln-1.1.9-1.i386.rpm:
E: cln no-signature

cln-devel-1.1.9-1.i386.rpm:
E: cln-devel requires-on-release cln 1.1.9-1
W: cln-devel no-major-in-name cln-devel
E: cln-devel no-signature

cln-1.1.9-1.src.rpm:
E: cln no-signature

All rpmlint errors can be ignored.

Good:

- Source matches upstream
- License OK (GPL), COPYING included in main package
- Libraries have ldconfig in %post/%postun
- Meets PackageNamingGuidelines
- Meets PackagingGuidelines

Approved.

Review of GiNaC:

Rpmlint tests:

GiNaC-1.3.1-1.i386.rpm:
E: GiNaC no-signature

GiNaC-devel-1.3.1-1.i386.rpm:
E: GiNaC-devel requires-on-release GiNaC 1.3.1-1
W: GiNaC-devel no-major-in-name GiNaC-devel
E: GiNaC-devel no-signature

GiNaC-utils-1.3.1-1.i386.rpm:
E: GiNaC-utils requires-on-release GiNaC 1.3.1-1
E: GiNaC-utils no-signature

GiNaC-1.3.1-1.src.rpm:
E: GiNaC no-signature

All rpmlint errors can be ignored.

Good:

- License OK (GPL), COPYING included in main package
- Libraries have ldconfig in %post/%postun
- Scriptlets look sane
- Meets PackageNamingGuidelines
- Meets PackagingGuidelines

Bad:

- Source does NOT match upstream:
096d076e58103149f05da0a8ecd03d67  GiNaC-1.3.0.tar.bz2 (upstream)
46bb82c40f3e00f8e7fe03708dfec2c9  GiNaC-1.3.0.tar.gz (cvs)
- Spec refers to .tar.gz which does not exist on upstream server,
only .tar.bz2 exists.
- Refuses to build properly without: 
	BuildRequires: readline-devel, tetex-latex, tetex-dvips
- Probably want to make sure that doxygen is present:
	BuildRequires: doxygen
- GiNaC 1.3.0 doesn't actually build in rawhide. The good news is that
GiNaC 1.3.1 does. You should move to that version.

You'll need to fix these blockers before I can approve.
