Comment 2 John Mahowald 2005-12-13 17:36:24 UTC
- package meets naming guidelines
- license (GPL) OK, text in %doc, matches source
- spec file legible
- source matches upstream
- package compiles on FC4 i386
- no missing BR
- no unnecessary BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all directories that it creates
- permissions ok
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- no need for .desktop file 


Stuff needing work:
- warnings about duplicate files
- %doc %{_mandir} is useless, rpm knows about man already
- empty NEWS and FAQ aren't useful, don't include
- Don't need to list every file in %files, including a directory includes its
contents. Wildcards accepted, useful for including everything but not owning the
directory. So you can do:

%files
%{_bindir}/*
%{_datadir}/new
%{_mandir}/*/*

- Your header and pkgconfig files should be in a seperate devel sub package.
This devel package should require the base new package, the exact same version.
See PackageReviewGuidelines on the wiki.

Comment 4 John Mahowald 2005-12-19 06:18:03 UTC
Builds and works. rpmlint complains about:

E: new non-executable-script /usr/share/new/templates/missing/default 0644
E: new non-executable-script /usr/share/new/templates/py/default 0644
E: new non-executable-script /usr/share/new/templates/sh/default 0644
W: new-devel no-documentation

but these can be ignored, templates aren't executable.

devel subpackage included, no .la files.

Remainder of review in comment 2.

APPROVED

Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2005-12-24 19:00:24 UTC
> %files devel
> %{_libdir}/pkgconfig/new.pc
> %{_includedir}/new
> %{_libdir}/lib*.so

Missing %defattr(..). If built, files in binary package will be
owned by the build user.


Comment 6 W. Michael Petullo 2005-12-24 20:09:42 UTC
new-1.3.5-3 is now in CVS.  This version fixes the issue raised in command #5.
