Request for Review: libevent & tor



Hi.

I'd like to present the following RPM files for review:

libevent:
http://www.skytale.net/files/libevent/libevent-1.1-1.src.rpm

The libevent API provides a mechanism to execute a callback function
when a specific event occurs on a file descriptor or after a timeout
has been reached. libevent is meant to replace the asynchronous event
loop found in event driven network servers. An application just needs
to call event_dispatch() and can then add or remove events dynamically
without having to change the event loop.



tor:
http://www.skytale.net/files/tor/tor-0.1.0.8-0.1.rc.src.rpm

Tor is a toolset for a wide range of organizations and people that want to
improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using Tor can help you
anonymize web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH,
and more. Tor also provides a platform on which software developers
can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety, and privacy
features.


Please note that libevent is required to build tor.
The tor package has a known flaw: it creates several directories on
install (/var/log/tor and /var/lib/tor), which are empty by default.
tor will create files in them when running. On uninstall, these
directories are not removed because they contain files not owned
by the package. How do I fix this?

Thanks.
