Review Request for kde-plasma-daisy

I just put up a review for a new plasmoid called "daisy". You'll find
specs, srpms and kde-look link @
This is my first package I try to contribute to fedora, so it looks like
I'll need someone who is able to sponsor me.

Additionally I have a question. Normally I was setting up as
requirements the following packages:

BuildRequires:  kde-filesystem >= 4
BuildRequires:  kdelibs4-devel >= 4.2
BuildRequires:  kdebase-workspace-devel >= 4.2
BuildRequires:  cmake

%{?_kde4_macros_api:Requires: kde4-macros(api) = %{_kde4_macros_api} }
Requires: kdelibs4 >= 4.2

However, I noticed that most plasmoids in cvs just contains:
BuildRequires:  kdebase-workspace-devel >= 4.2.0

Basically this would be fine for me and I can build (s)rpms without any
problem. However, if I try to check it using "mock -r fedora-11-i386" I
am getting this error message:

Old dependencies seems to running fine. Any idea, what's causing the
problem or did I simply misunderstood the cvs specs? Thanks in adivse.

Best regards,
