Summary     : Python script to generate R spec file
Description :

R2spec API.

Update Information:

Version 3.0.0 -- 05th May 2019  - Features added    * R2spec can now be called
from an external script    * Use template via jinja2 to generate the spec files
(Based on an idea of Allen S. Rout)    * Create the R2rpm script which directly
builds the rpm    * Add a man page for R2rpm    * Add the -p option which enable
to build a spec from a package name    * Parse the PACKAGES file from the
repositories to find the information for the packages    * Make the print of the
TODO optional in the API    * Give the opportunity to use mock to build the RPMs
(rpmbuild being the default)    * Enable to specify the mock command in the conf
file    * Enable to change the argument given to rpmbuild via the conf file
(to build srpm instead of rpm for example)  - Bugs correction    * Fix the
addition of the R- prefix to the dependencies    * Rewrite the reading of the
DESCRIPTION file from R    * Do not enforce the spec and the source directory,
reads the rpmmacros instead       Thanks to José Matos for this function    *
Fix the summary if it ends with a dot "."    * Capitalize the summary by default
* Change UTF-8 to utf-8 to make emacs happy    * Fix the spec file for the
dependencies of this new release    * Fix some bugs while trying to generate the
RPM/SPEC from a tarball
