Description Thomas Sailer 2009-03-23 11:11:45 UTC
Spec URL: http://sailer.fedorapeople.org/mingw32-libxml++.spec

MinGW Windows C++ wrapper for libxml2.

Approved MinGW packaging guidelines are here:

Comment 1 Kalev Lember 2009-03-24 17:47:54 UTC
This package needs mingw32-glibmm24, which isn't included in Fedora and has to be submitted for review first.

Besides that, you'll also need:
BuildRequires: mingw32-gcc-c++

and pkgconfig because you have libxml++-2.6.pc in the package:
Requires: pkgconfig

Examples, manual, and reference shouldn't be included in the package because they duplicate docs in the native Fedora package.

Comment 2 Thomas Sailer 2009-03-25 09:32:24 UTC
You are right, mingw32-glibmm24 should go in first, I unfortunately noticed this only after submitting the review request.

Thank you for your intial review comments, I updated the package according to your comments:

Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-03-25 10:13:00 UTC
Please note that we have packaged mingw32-glibmm24:
It needs to be turned into a Review Request.

Comment 4 Kalev Lember 2009-04-16 19:52:15 UTC
mingw32-glibmm24 is now in Fedora and we can go on with this review.

- In Rawhide the native Fedora libxml++ package has been updated to 2.26.0, and
according to MinGW packaging guidelines the versions should match native
package if possible.

- Please clean up the %install section. It only makes the spec file unreadable if most of a section contains leftovers that aren't actually used.

- Removing *.a in %install section only matches the (needed) import library, because static libraries aren't built (configure --disable-static). It seems unnecessary to first delete the import lib and then manually copy it over from .libs.

Comment 5 Thomas Sailer 2009-04-17 07:46:49 UTC

I removed the docs cruft...

Koji scratch build:

Rpmlint is quiet:
$ rpmlint mingw32-libxml++-2.26.0-1.fc11.src.rpm
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

$ rpmlint mingw32-libxml++-2.26.0-1.fc11.noarch.rpm
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

Fedora review mingw32-libxml++-2.26.0-1.fc11.src.rpm 2008-04-17

+ OK
! needs attention

+ rpmlint output
+ Package is named according to Fedora MinGW packaging guidelines
+ Specfile name matches the package base name
+ Package follows the Fedora MinGW packaging guidelines
+ License meets guidelines and is acceptable to Fedora
+ License matches the actual package license
  It is also the same as in the corresponding Fedora libxml++ package
+ The package contains the license file (COPYING)
+ Spec file is written in American English
+ Spec file is legible
+ Upstream sources match sources in the srpm
a52fc7e6e44bb5cc187672930b843f72  libxml++-2.26.0.tar.bz2
a52fc7e6e44bb5cc187672930b843f72  SRPM/libxml++-2.26.0.tar.bz2

+ Package builds in mock (Fedora Rawhide i586)
n/a ExcludeArch bugs filed
+ BuildRequires list all build dependencies
n/a %find_lang instead of %{_datadir}/locale/*
n/a binary RPM with shared library files must call ldconfig in %post and %postun
+ Does not use Prefix: /usr
+ Package owns all directories it creates
+ No duplicate files in %files
+ %files has %defattr
+ %clean contains rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
+ Consistent use of macros
+ Package must contain code or permissible content
n/a Large documentation files should go in -doc subpackage
+ Files marked %doc should not affect package
n/a Header files should be in -devel
    Fedora MinGW guidelines allow headers in main package
n/a Static libraries should be in -static
+ Packages containing pkgconfig (.pc) files need 'Requires: pkgconfig'
n/a libfoo.so must go in -devel
n/a -devel must require the fully versioned base
n/a Packages should not contain libtool .la files
    Fedora MinGW guidelines allow .la files
n/a Packages containing GUI apps must include %{name}.desktop file
+ Packages must not own files or directories owned by other packages
+ %install begins with rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
+ Filenames must be valid UTF-8

After the %install cleanup dos2unix is no longer needed in BuildRequires, but that can be fixed without having to send an updated version for me to approve.
