OK - MUST: The package successfully compiles and builds into binary rpms on
N/A - MUST: If the package does not successfully compile, build or work on an
architecture, then those architectures should be listed in the spec in
FAIL - MUST: Not all build dependencies are listed in BuildRequires: dbus-devel
and desktop-file-utils are missing
N/A - MUST: The spec file handles locales properly with the %find_lang macro.
N/A - MUST: Every binary RPM package (or subpackage) which stores shared
library files (not just symlinks) in any of the dynamic linker's default paths,
must call ldconfig in %post and %postun.
N/A - MUST: If the package is designed to be relocatable, the packager must
state this fact in the request for review, along with the rationalization for
relocation of that specific package.
OK - MUST: The package owns all directories that it creates.
OK - MUST: The package does not contain any duplicate files in the %files

N/A - MUST: Static libraries must be in a -static package.
N/A - MUST: Packages containing pkgconfig(.pc) files must 'Requires:
N/A - MUST: If a package contains library files with a suffix (e.g.
libfoo.so.1.1), then library files that end in .so (without suffix) must go in
a -devel package.
N/A - MUST: In the vast majority of cases, devel packages must require the base
package using a fully versioned dependency: Requires: %{name} =
OK - MUST: The package does not contain any .la libtool archives.
OK - MUST: The package contains a GUI application and includes a
%{name}.desktop file, and that file is properly installed with
desktop-file-install in the %install section.
FAIL - MUST: The packages owns files or directories already owned by other
packages: %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor/*/apps/
OK - MUST: At the beginning of %install, the package runs rm -rf
OK - MUST: All filenames in rpm packages are valid UTF-8.

N/A - SHOULD: If the source package does not include license text(s) as a
separate file from upstream, the packager SHOULD query upstream to include it.
N/A - SHOULD: The description and summary sections in the package spec file
should contain translations for supported Non-English languages, if available.
FAIL - SHOULD: The the package does not build in mock due to the missing
BuildRequires mentioned above.
OK - SHOULD: The package should compile and build into binary rpms on all
supported architectures.
OK - SHOULD: The package functions as described.
OK - SHOULD: Scriptlets are used, those scriptlets must be sane.
N/A - SHOULD: Usually, subpackages other than devel should require the base
package using a fully versioned dependency.
N/A - SHOULD: The placement of pkgconfig(.pc) files depends on their usecase,
and this is usually for development purposes, so should be placed in a -devel
N/A - SHOULD: If the package has file dependencies outside of /etc, /bin,
/sbin, /usr/bin, or /usr/sbin consider requiring the package which provides the
file instead of the file itself.

- %files: you are owning all the apps folders inside %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor
- BuildRequires: missing dbus-devel and desktop-file-utils
- Requires: desktop-file-utils is not a requirement but a BuildReqiures
- Requires: gtkmm24 is not necessary since gnote already requires
libgdkmm-2.4.so.1 which is provided by that package
- Gconf2 is missing for the scriptles:
   Requires(pre): GConf2
   Requires(post): GConf2
   Requires(preun): GConf2

- BuildRequires: libxml2-devel is pretty redundant since it is already required
by libxml++-devel GConf2-devel and a lot more.
- Consider using wildcards: %{_datadir}/icons/hicolor/*/apps/gnote.png
- Desktop file: remove --vendor=""
