Hi all,

As announced on my blog, I have released the new version of R2spec
(version 3.0.0) containing R2rpm.

Below[2] is the full changelog for this release.

Thanks for your comments/feedbacks on this release.
Feel free to test it again and add karma on Bodhi [1]

Thanks to all of you again,



Version 3.0.0 -- 05th May 2019
- Features added
  * R2spec can now be called from an external script
  * Use template via jinja2 to generate the spec files (Based on an idea
of Allen S. Rout)
  * Create the R2rpm script which directly builds the rpm
  * Add a man page for R2rpm
  * Add the -p option which enable to build a spec from a package name
  * Parse the PACKAGES file from the repositories to find the
information for the packages
  * Make the print of the TODO optional in the API
  * Give the opportunity to use mock to build the RPMs (rpmbuild being
the default)
  * Enable to specify the mock command in the conf file
  * Enable to change the argument given to rpmbuild via the conf file 
      (to build srpm instead of rpm for example)
- Bugs correction
  * Fix the addition of the R- prefix to the dependencies
  * Rewrite the reading of the DESCRIPTION file from R
  * Do not enforce the spec and the source directory, reads the
rpmmacros instead
     Thanks to José Matos for this function
  * Fix the summary if it ends with a dot "."
  * Capitalize the summary by default
  * Change UTF-8 to utf-8 to make emacs happy
  * Fix the spec file for the dependencies of this new release
  * Fix some bugs while trying to generate the RPM/SPEC from a tarball
