RPM spec file for Bear

This repository contains a spec file to build Bear on Fedora and RHEL.

Pre-build rpms are available from copr.

Local building

The rpm can be build locally via:

spectool -g bear.spec
fedpkg --release $version srpm
fedpkg --release $version mockbuild

where $version has to be replaced with the target Fedora/RHEL version (e.g. f28 or el7). Depending on the chosen version, it might be necessary to rename the source rpm file, as fedpkg expects a different name (it will complain about it).
