Description Ruben Kerkhof 2007-09-06 15:06:48 EDT
Spec URL: http://rubenkerkhof.com/packages/netpipe.spec SRPM URL: http://rubenkerkhof.com/packages/netpipe-3.7.1-1.fc7.src.rpm Description: NetPIPE is a protocol independent performance tool that visually represents the network performance under a variety of conditions.x It performs simple ping-pong tests, bouncing messages of increasing size between two processes, whether across a network or within an SMP system. Message sizes are chosen at regular intervals, and with slight perturbations, to provide a complete test of the communication system. Each data point involves many ping-pong tests to provide an accurate timing. Latencies are calculated by dividing the round trip time in half for small messages ( < 64 Bytes ).
Comment 1 Till Maas 2007-09-08 03:21:21 EDT
- naming: ok (debian also uses a lowercase name) - rpmlint: ok (silent) - source: ok cc458a9154f6b8c6da9fae16627beec4 NetPIPE-3.7.1.tar.gz cc458a9154f6b8c6da9fae16627beec4 NetPIPE-3.7.1.tar.gz.1 - BuildRoot: ok - Package compiles in koji for all supported archs - License: NEEDSWORK You use GPLv2+, but I cannot find any information on the version of the license, the header in some source files only mention GPL, but no version and so does README. Also no license text is included. These files do not contain any license header, but some contain an author: shmem.c MP_memcpy.c mpi2.c gpshmem.c gm.c armci.c Would you please ask upstream to update the license header (and the manpage and README) to a specific GPL Version, add a license header to the mentioned files and include the license text in the tarball?

(In reply to comment #1) > Would you please ask upstream to update the license header (and the manpage and > README) to a specific GPL Version, Upstream does not have to change the license to version specific. If no specific version is provided, the license is simply GPL+ (GPL any version).
Comment 3 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-09-09 05:00:25 EDT
Thanks Mamoru and Till. I've changed the license tag to GPL+ New version here: http://rubenkerkhof.com/packages/netpipe-3.7.1-2.fc7.src.rpm
Comment 4 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-11-26 11:36:01 EST
Till, do you want to have another look?
Comment 5 Till Maas 2007-11-26 12:08:05 EST
Sorry for not answering earlier: Did you ask upstream about a license header for these files? shmem.c MP_memcpy.c mpi2.c gpshmem.c gm.c armci.c
Comment 6 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-11-26 14:58:13 EST
I wasn't aware that each file needed a license header, but I'll ask upstream to include those (and a separate LICENSE file).
Comment 7 Ruben Kerkhof 2008-01-15 16:29:25 EST
Hmm, upstream seems to be less active than I thought. I haven't received a reply from them, nor could I subscribe to the mailing list. Getting this package in Fedora is probably not a good idea, so I'll close the ticket. Thanks for the effort Till.
