Summary: Review Request: CGAL

1/ I know that static libraries should be avoided, when possible (see my not 
in comment #1). In that case, the upstream developpers do not provide shared 
library for libCGALQt.a and libcore++.a. For libcore++, I could package Core 
separately (http://www.cs.nyu.edu/exact/core/download/core_v1.7/). But, for 
libCGALQt.a, do you see a solution? Waiting for the next release which could 
have shared version for all libraries cannot be a solution: CGAL releases come 
each year. It was really a chance that I manage to make the documention files  
removed from the upstream tarball of CGAL-3.2.1 (for license issues).

2/ As regards the macros... yes I know. This spec file is configurable, so 
that it can be applied to internal release of CGAL as well. What do you mean 
by redefining name of version or release? If I am not wrong, the conditionals 
make them be defined only once. If reviewers agreed that it is two much, I 
will pruned the spec file to remove the macro, as if the default values were 

3/ For the upstream source tarball, I do not understand your point. spectool 
(from package fedora-rpmdevtools) can understand the macros and give the full 

I know pretty well the packaging guidelines. Please give me pointers to 
paragraphs that I could have missed.
