Description Walter Cervini 2006-10-11 19:10:14 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.softwarelibre777.com/volp/snitch.spec SRPM URL: http://www.softwarelibre777.com/volp/snitch-0.0.1-0.fc5.volp.src.rpm Description: Snitch parses a configuration file which you provide (see the snitch README for instructions on how to make a config file) and creates tc (traffic control) commands which, when you run them, will configure the built-in packetshaping utilities of your Linux box. The tc commands are written to STDOUT. It was written in conjunction with another project, l7-filter, which consists of a kernel patch to allow shaping on application-level proto- cols. Both projects can be found on SourceForge

This is my first Packages. I'm looking for a Sponsor

Hi Walter, are you sure you meant to close this bug? If not, please take a look at the other review requests and see how they were setup: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/showdependencytree.cgi?id=FE-NEW&hide_resolved=1

Hi Walter, I'm afraid this package needs a lot of work before it is of acceptable quality for Fedora Extras. If you are serious about FE and would like to continue the process then please do the following: 1) Please carefully read ALL of these two pages: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ReviewGuidelines and verify and (where necessary) fix your package so that it follows all of the rules, guidelines, etc. 2) Please look at some successful past submissions and see what their spec files currently resemble. There are a large number of them in CVS which you can see on-line at: http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/rpms/?root=extras and it is a good idea to study and emulate them -- especially those that might be similar in type/function. 3) Please consider packing something else for your first attempt. The home page for snitch says: "Snitch is not really functional and is not under active development." which is not an encouraging statement! Also, I noticed that you requested sponsorship. According to: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Contributors you should send the request only after your first package has been approved.
