           Summary: Review Request: gpsd
           Product: Fedora Extras
           Version: devel
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: Package Review
        AssignedTo: bugzilla-sink at leemhuis.info

Spec Name or Url: http://matt.truch.net/fedora/gpsd.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://matt.truch.net/fedora/gpsd-2.32-1.src.rpm
gpsd is a service daemon that mediates access to a GPS sensor
connected to the host computer by serial or USB interface, making its
data on the location/course/velocity of the sensor available to be
queried on TCP port 2947 of the host computer.  With gpsd, multiple
GPS client applications (such as navigational and wardriving software)
can share access to a GPS without contention or loss of data.  Also,
gpsd responds to queries with a format that is substantially easier to
parse than NMEA 0183.

Thanks in advance for the review!

Note, I based the rpm on the spec that comes with gpsd, although I made it conform to fedora-extras requirements as much as possible.
rpmlint complains about: 
E: gpsd-clients only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
And this is due to 'config' files placed in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/ as per how the original rpm spec did things.  The programs run fine (using the same defaults) without these files, so perhaps I should not include them?  This is new territory for me, so I thought I'd check first.
