Description Alexander Kahl 2007-08-27 14:22:57 UTC
Spec URL: http://prelive.iconmobile.com/dev31/fedora-icm-repo/Fedora/7/SPECS/php-pear-Creole.spec
SRPM URL: http://prelive.iconmobile.com/dev31/fedora-icm-repo/Fedora/7/SRPMS/php-pear-Creole-1.1.0-3.fc7.src.rpm
Creole is a database abstraction layer for PHP5. It abstracts PHP's
native db-specific API to create more portable code while also
providing developers with a clean fully object-oriented interface
based loosely on the API for Java's JDBC.


This is my first package and I'm searching for a sponsor.
php-pear-Creole relies on php-channel-phpdb that is also available in the same repository. I wasn't sure about the channel's license because there are no clear indicators if there is any, so I've left the license field 'N/A' for now.
My employer explicitly allowed me to release packages I've made at work and there are several other PHP5-related ones available in my repository that I'd like to commit as soon as I've got approval.

Comment 1 Remi Collet 2007-09-03 14:17:33 UTC
Please, submit php-channel-phpdb to review and add it as a blocker for this review.

There is no Guidelines yet for "channel", we have to work on it.

- Please, don't use %{pear_phpdir}/* in %file
- keep version in php-pear BR (mainly to avoid EL-4 build)

I don't know about License for channel, but you could probably use the same
(LGPLv2) than the package provided by this channel or simply "Public domain"
(N/A is not a acceptable)

I could do a review, but i couldn't sponsor you.

Comment 2 Remi Collet 2007-09-03 14:23:36 UTC
- also change name to php-pear-creole (no uppercase in upstream package name)

Comment 3 Alexander Kahl 2007-09-03 15:27:33 UTC
Thanks Remi for helping me!

- add php-channel-phpdb as a blocker: fixed
- change license field in the channel: fixed
- replace ${pear_phpdir} with ${_datadir}/pear: fixed
- keep version in php-pear BR: sorry, what does that mean?
- name change to php-pear-creole: fixed

New Spec URL:

What can I do to improve my chances finding a sponsor?

Comment 4 Remi Collet 2007-09-08 05:47:07 UTC
You must use 
BuildRequires:  php-pear >= 1:1.4.9-1.2
Because macro used for this spec are not defined in previous pear release.

I will prefer R and BR on php-channel(pear.phpdb.org) rather then php-channel-phpdb.
Ok, there is no guidelines yet, but i will propose this

When i wrote don't use %{pear_phpdir}/*, i mean use %{pear_phpdir} but not *
Probably ${pear_phpdir}/creole

I can't build this RPM, don't understand why.
"pear install" hangs.

I will try later.

Comment 5 Remi Collet 2007-09-08 06:24:10 UTC
It seems there is a bug in PEAR.

Build ok with F7 pear 1.5.0

Build hangs with newer version (1.5.4, 1.6.1).
This issue also affects php-pear-PHPUnit.

See Bug #283401

Comment 6 Alexander Kahl 2007-09-11 15:29:15 UTC
Updated Spec URL:
Updated SRPM URL:

- proper php-pear requirement
- changed php-channel requirement syntax
- rectified file ownership

Shall I nail the pear version requirement to < 1.5.4?

Comment 7 Remi Collet 2007-09-11 18:15:28 UTC
> Shall I nail the pear version requirement to < 1.5.4?

No. Bug #283401 is closed (pear 1.6.2 pushed in rawhide)

Comment 8 Alexander Kahl 2007-09-18 12:46:27 UTC
Any progress here? Is -5 OK?

Comment 9 Remi Collet 2007-09-22 14:59:33 UTC
Have you been sponsored ?

Comment 10 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-09-22 15:03:09 UTC
(In reply to comment #9)
> Have you been sponsored ?

Now I am sponsoring Alexander (bug 275831)

Comment 11 Alexander Kahl 2007-10-01 20:17:48 UTC
Remi, will you continue the review now? 

Comment 12 Remi Collet 2007-10-02 06:27:07 UTC

I will work on it this week-end.
