Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2005-08-24 12:27:17 UTC

- rpmlint clean
- package and spec naming OK
- package meets guidelines
- license is same as perl, matches spec
- spec file legible and written in English
- sources match upstream
- builds OK in mock on FC-4 (i386)
- BR's mostly OK
- no locales, subpackages, libraries, pkgconfigs etc. to worry about
- not relocatable
- directory ownership OK
- no duplicate files or permission issues
- %clean section present and correct
- macro usage is consistent
- code, not content
- no large docs
- docs don't affect runtime
- no scriptlets


- redundant BR: perl
- license text not included in package; suggest adding to %prep:
  perldoc -t perlgpl > COPYING
  perldoc -t perlartistic > Artistic
  and to %files:
  %doc COPYING Artistic


- include BR: perl(Date::Simple) for more test coverage


- Including a BR: perl(Time::Piece::MySQL) would also improve coverage but this
  is not yet available in Extras or submitted for review, but it's worth adding
  at some point if someone submits that package

Attached patch addresses Needswork and Nitpick issues raised in review

Comment 4 Paul Howarth 2005-08-24 18:04:16 UTC

It would be convenient if you could get builds of this package and its
dependencies done, to facilitate reviews (particularly mock builds) of the
packages that depend on it. I've been making a local repo containing the
unreleased packages thus far. Perhaps you have, and they're waiting on the PPC
builder... I dunno.

Comment 5 Paul Howarth 2005-08-24 20:44:54 UTC
Chris Grau has now submitted perl(Time::Piece::MySQL) to Extras (bugzilla
#166700) so you might want to add this as a BR now for extra test coverage.

Comment 6 Paul Howarth 2005-08-26 09:49:52 UTC
Some manual deps need to be added:

Requires: perl(Class::Accessor), perl(Ima::DBI)

These aren't picked up by RPM automatically.
