A software package for the development and application of
grammars that are used for the analysis of words and sentences of natural
languages. It is a language-independent system that offers a programming
language for the modelling of the language-dependent grammatical
information. This language is also called Malaga.
Malaga is based on the grammatical theory of the "Left Associative Grammar"
(LAG), developed by Roland Hausser, professor for Computational Linguistics at
University of Erlangen, Germany.
I'm not personally using this package as such, but the Finnish F/OSS spellchecker Voikko depends on Suomi-Malaga which naturally depends on Malaga, so in order to get Voikko packaged for Fedora I need to package the whole dependency chain.
I'm a new packager with only one package in Fedora before these, so I may have made some errors here, I appreciate your feedback.
There are some rpmlint issues with the packages:
malaga.src and malaga - E: summary-too-long. Hard to fix, the summary is directly from the README and I can't come up with a better one.
malaga: E: postin-without-install-info /usr/share/info/malaga.info.gz. This is probably caused by the fact that the upstream Makefile installs the info file, so I don't call install-info in the spec file. Should I?
malaga: W: empty-%postun. Is this caused by the issue above?
malaga-devel and libmalaga: W: no-documentation. All the documentation is in the main malaga package, is that OK?
Have I split the packages correctly, so that there is malaga which has all the executables, docs, man/info files etc, libmalaga which has the library files and malaga-devel? Or should the lib package be named malaga-libs? Or should the files currently in malaga and libmalaga even be in the same package?
