Actually, it *is* a MUST item. The ReviewGuidelines explicitly state: "MUST: The
package must meet the Packaging Guidelines." Part of the packaging guidelines
is this BuildRoot determination. Though it is only a highly recommended value
when the usage of "preferred" is literally taken; it is the spirit of the
guidelines that makes this a requirement IMHO. The guidelines are there to
ensure that packages going into Fedora all meet the same level of high quality
assurance standards. While it is understandable that there are those packages
which cannot meet specific guidelines for valid reasons, making the tag more
terse than it already is is not one of them to me. (No disrespect intended, but
how hard is it, really, to copy and paste the "BuildRoot: ..." line from the
Guidelines wiki page? ^_^)
If the Guidelines mean otherwise, why does it not mention any proper alternative?
We seem to be in much disagreement about this, having reached somewhat of an
impasse on these terms. I'm afraid I am therefore unable, in good conscience,
review your submitted packages. Unfortunately, from a cursory glance at the
.spec and rpmlint, this appears to be the only major issue that I can spot.
