Comment 1 Orcan Ogetbil 2008-11-20 06:50:31 UTC
I reviewed this package. Here is what needs to be done for compliance with the guidelines:

* The doc files ABOUT-NLS, AUTHORS, ChangeLog, COPYING, NEWS, README, THANKS need to be packaged.

* We prefer %defattr(-,root,root,-)

* Buildroot must be one of these:
   %(mktemp -ud %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-XXXXXX)
   %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
   %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root

* It would be nice if you explain in the SPEC file what the patches do. The project seems dead, I don't think there is any place to submit the patches to.

* Parallel make should be supported whenever possible. If it is not supported, this should be noted in the SPEC file as a comment.

I'm removing myself from CC and adding ovasik. He is current maintainer of pax, according to:

Comment 4 Ondrej Vasik 2009-01-19 11:29:48 UTC
Thanks for review. Afaik buildroot is completely ignored by latest rpm, so that guideline is no longer so important. Anyway - it is one commit, so could be fixed as well for sanity. I fixed all your objections, built as pax-3.4-7.fc11.

Comment 5 Orcan Ogetbil 2009-01-19 13:42:35 UTC
You are welcome Ondrej. There is one more thing that I missed last time. The guidelines state that:
"Fedora's RPM includes a %makeinstall macro but it must NOT be used when make install DESTDIR=%{buildroot} works." [1]

For pax, this really doesn't matter much since %makeinstall just works as desired. But it is stated in the above guideline as a "MUST" so I had to bring it into your attention.


Otherwise, I couldn't find any problems. Review is done on my side.
