AX_SPEC_PACKAGE_AND_VERSION ([specfile]) AX_SPEC_PACKAGE_NAME ([shellvar],[defaultvalue]) AX_SPEC_PACKAGE_VERSION ([shellvar],[defaultvalue]) AX_SPEC_PACKAGE_SUMMARY ([shellvar],[defaultvalue]) AX_SPEC_PACKAGE_LICENSE ([shellvar],[defaultvalue]) AX_SPEC_PACKAGE_CATEGORY ([shellvar],[defaultvalue]) AX_SPEC_PACKAGE_ICON ([shellvar],[defaultvalue]) AX_SPEC_DEFAULTS([specfile])
set PACKAGE from the given specfile - default to basename of the rpmspecfile if no "name:" could be found in the spec file.
set VERSION from the given specfile - default to a date-derived value if no "version:" could be found in the spec file.
this macro builds on top of AX_SPEC_FILE / AX_SPEC_EXTRACT
more specific: if not "name:" or "%define name" was found in the myproject.spec file then the PACKAGE var is set to the basename "myproject". When no spec file was present then it will usually default to "TODO".
The version spec looks for "version:" or "%define version" in the spec file. When no such value was seen or no spec file had been present then the value is set to ‘date +0.%y.%W%w‘.
the version value itself is sanitized somewhat with making it to always carry at least three digits (1.2.3) and cleansing superfluous "0" chars around from generating numbers elsewhere.
additional macros are provided that extract a specific value from the spec file, among these:
set PACKAGE_SUMMARY from the given specfile - default to package and try to detect a type suffix if "summary:" was not in the spec file
set PACKAGE_LICENSE from the given specfile - if no "license:" tag was given in the spec file then various COPYING files are grepped to have a guess and the final fallback will be GNU GPL (or GNU LGPL).
set PACKAGE_ICON from the given specfile - if no "icon:" tag was given in the spec file then we default to $PACKAGE-icon.png
the final AX_SPEC_INIT(specfile) will initialize all variables to its defaults according to the spec file given.
