Description Jeff Law 2007-08-06 17:27:51 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/~law/StatelessServer.spec SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/~law/StatelessServer-0.1-1.src.rpm Description: Minimal setup and configuration of a server for stateless clients. The stateless server is responsible for initial imaging, updates and configuration management of stateless clients. rpmlint issues errors due to non-standard uid/gids as several files need to be owned by the puppet uid/gid. I'm not sure how to prevent this error from rpmlint (StatelessServer does list the puppet packages as dependencies). rpmlint also complains about % in the %post section. One of the puppet configuration files updated by the %post section has a %H and %h in it which trips rpmlint. Finally, the %post actually builds another RPM and installs it into the www directory on the server via cp, this causes rpmlint to balk with a dangerous command in %post error. I'm open to any suggestions for how to resolve those errors and/or cleaning up the %post section which (IMHO) has to do far too much tweaking of existing configuration files to set up the stateless server.

Not a full review, but seeing such a large %post script makes me very uncomfortable. For starters, what is going to happen when people update to a newer version of the package (at least for lokkit, you append to its config file every time) ... restarting services from %post is very bad, since it breaks installing the package into buildroots (mock) Please turn the %post script into a file that gets installed by the package and has to be run manually. (You could of course turn this into a puppet manifest, but having stateless-server manage itself through puppet seems a little too clever)

It's been well over a year since David's comment with no response, and as far as I know the whole stateless server thing has been abandoned. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, though. Setting needinfo; I'll close this ticket soon if there's no further activity.

No response; closing.
