Default Self Introduction

Greetings. I'm Michael, a Ph.D student in human-computer interaction at
the University of Minnesota researching recommender systems (and working
on an open source recommender toolkit). In my spare time I engage in
recreational OCaml hacking (and use it whenever I can in my research
work as well).

I'm starting out helping fix some things on a couple existing OCaml
packages. I'll be hanging around the ocaml-devel list and trying to be
generally helpful there.

Welcome to Fedora. If you are in IRC, hangout in #fedora-kde, Since
this a KDE package, you probably can get someone in the KDE team to
sponsor you.

Welcome to Fedora Ryan. Are you working on any specific package? have

Not a full review but a cursory look shows you need to do atleast the
following:

You haven't fixed the issues noted in comment 3. You need not specify
the build dependencies if they are part of the default build root.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Exceptions_2

You don't need to define a buildroot

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#BuildRoot_tag

No need to specify a clean section. Yours is incorrect and empty

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#.25clean

You haven't written a changelog. Make sure you run rpmlint on the spec
file, srpm and binary rpm

Just curious, what is the scientific software that you interested to see
packaged in Fedora other than naturally scilab? :-)
