I'm packaging ino for Fedora and here are two things that I have to solve.

There is a MIT-LICENSE.txt in this Git repository, but it is not in the tarball. However, the README.rst in the tarball references it. Could you please release a tarball with this license file?

The second thing is, that rpmlint (a tool, that checks if RPM package is OK) complains about empty and hidden files:

ino.noarch: W: hidden-file-or-dir /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ino/templates/blink/lib/.holder
ino.noarch: E: zero-length /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ino/templates/blink/lib/.holder
ino.noarch: W: hidden-file-or-dir /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ino/templates/empty/lib/.holder
ino.noarch: E: zero-length /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ino/templates/empty/lib/.holder

Could you please tell me, whether the empty hidden files are necessary? The best thing you can do is to answer to the following questions:

  • If I delete those empty hidden files, would it break ino?
    • If it would, would adding content to those files break ino too? E.g. echo foo > templates/blink/lib/.holder

Thanks a lot.

Hello! Great to hear that you're going to pack it for Fedora.

Here are answers:

  1. Done
  2. Will not break in either case
