Description Russell Coker 2008-05-26 22:37:03 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.coker.com.au/rpm/postal.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.coker.com.au/rpm/postal-0.70-2.src.rpm
Description: The Postal suite consists of an SMTP delivery benchmark (postal), a POP retrieval benchmark (rabid) and a SMTP sink (bhm).  It is designed to test mail servers and mail forwarding systems.

This is my first package and I need a sponsor.

Hi Russell,

I am only performing a pre-review (not formal) of your packaging request. I am
not entitled to sponsor you, however someone else will in due time.

1] There seems to be a version inconsistency. The hyperlink for the source
version 0.70 leads to source version 0.69. Kindly check with upstream.

I have changed the version to 0.69 for further testing.

2] The RPM package fails to build due to a build error during compilation of the
program (please take a look at the log file attached)

Instead of

%configure --prefix=${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}
It is preferable to use

%configure --disable-static

3]Kindly avoid using hardcoded paths for %files section. Use macros as much as
possible. They are defined here : http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/RPMMacros

/usr/sbin/rabid will become %{_sbindir}/rabid and so on

4] Kindly include the %dist tag with your release number as :
Release:        2%{?dist} for your future releases.

This package review has been sitting idle for 10 months plus now. 

My preference is that the original packager would pick this up and continue it, however failing that one week from now I'll mark this as a dead review and close the ticket, and likely work on getting it packaged and reviewed. 



Please pick this review back up if you are interested in maintaining it within Fedora.

It's been a couple weeks - and no response. 
I'll start working on repackaging this shortly. 

Closing notabug and blocking FE-DEADREVIEW per:
