3bcd42265a01a9261b18146273872a0d  perl-Roman-1.1-0.fc.1.src.rpm

0ded0e59e44267c803c4c8609ee52523  perl-Roman.spec
67b0e6affdc50fdf28cfc438c045fd9b  Roman-1.1.tar.gz

* Roman-1.1.tar.gz: MD5 digest matches the CPAN tarball

* wrong release (and dist tag)
* the license information is incomplete: perl is dual licensed
  (GPL or Artistic)
* changelog entry missing
* remove the dot at the end of the summary (rpmlint)

* change the URL to "http://search.cpan.org/dist/Roman/"
  (no author or version info - easier to maintain)
* the perl build requirement can be dropped
* when copying files try to preserve the timestamps
  (use install with the -p option)
* you can also use install to create the perl directory
  (%{__install} -d -m 0755 $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{perl_vendorlib})
* don't mix spaces and tabs in the specfile
  (check the release line)

Created attachment 143242 [details]
specfile patch


The attached patch corrects all the problems mentioned in the previous comment
(also removes a couple of lost spaces and reformats a couple of lines).

Was this ping directed at me?  Is there something else that I need to do?

Please read

   and add FE-NEEDSPONSOR to the blocking list (see step 7 of the first link).

Anything happening here?
