Fri Jan 14 22:15:01 UTC 2011 -

- reformatted complete calibre.changes file:
  openSUSE:Factory requires a linewidth < 70
  (refer to the dashed lines for linewidth) 

Thu Jan 13 09:35:04 UTC 2011 -

- removed Require: python-django-tagging since it is no longer
  needed (searched the calibre sources for "tagging" and "django")

- added packages that are only required, to BuildRequires, too,

  Requires should always be a subset of BuildRequires. If there
  are packages that are only Required 
  * there is no way to check whether these packages are available
    in the given repositories unless you install the package (the
    build environment only contains packages from the given
    repositories and the project 
  * the project's repository might become inconsistent, because
    Required packages do not block a build. So a package might get
    published, although a Required package does not build

Wed Jan 12 16:01:20 UTC 2011 -

- another Requires fix

  * cleaned up the spec file
  * added rpmlintrc (no need to remove all the shebangs)
  * uses a tmp dir now and is less verbose
  * updated to new version 0.7.38

      ZIP/EPUB file, if the UTF-8 bit marker is not set, still
      assume that the file name is encoded in UTF-8. If UTF-8
      decoding fails try to detect character encoding using
      chardet. This is because  most ZIP/EPUB files calibre comes
      across seem to be utf-8  encoded.
