Description Mihai Limbășan 2009-10-18 14:43:11 EDT
Spec URL: http://rpms.limbasan.ro/fedora/11/SPECS/mingw32-speex.spec
SRPM URL: http://rpms.limbasan.ro/fedora/11/SRMPS/mingw32-speex-1.2-2.rc1.fc11.src.rpm
Description: This is a MinGW crosscompiler port of the speex package.

The spec file was created based on the example at

http://hg.et.redhat.com/cgi-bin/hg-misc.cgi/fedora-mingw--devel/file/3d9d4c1db042/example/mingw32-example.spec#l1

and on the main Fedora speex spec, taking into account the MinGW SIG packaging
guidelines at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/MinGW .

rpmlint output:

[mimock@home syncup]$ rpmlint mingw32-speex-1.2-2.rc1.fc11.noarch.rpm mingw32-speex-1.2-2.rc1.fc11.src.rpm mingw32-speex-static-1.2-2.rc1.fc11.noarch.rpm mingw32-speex-tools-1.2-2.rc1.fc11.noarch.rpm

which are OK accoring to the packaging guidelines.

Beside the usual static library subpackage, the command line encoder and decoder have been separated into a -tools subpackage to avoid having the speex codec libraries Require mingw32-libogg.

The -m4 patch is Fedora's -m4 patch, corrected to apply cleanly on 1.2rc1.

The -acconf patch helps in replacing the ancient config.sub, config.guess, and
libtool shipped by upstream with current versions.

The package BuildRequires, and the tools subpackage Requires the mingw32-libogg package - see bug #529548 - which is available at the same test repo ( http://rpms.limbasan.ro/fedora/11/i386/ ). mingw32-speex builds cleanly in mock. If there's any way to get Koji to perform a scratch build using third party packages, I couldn't figure it out, so there's no Koji link for the moment.

Package looks sane.  Same comment re static libraries.
Comment 2 Mihai Limbășan 2009-10-19 15:03:32 EDT
Improved package, bumped revision. New URLs:

Spec URL: 
SRPM URL: 

Changes as follows:
- Removed -static and -tools packages.
- aclocal and pkgconfig directories under _mingw32_libdir are
  no longer installed, mingw32-filesystem already provides them.
- Removed redundant BuildRequire mingw32-binutils which is
  already Required by mingw32-gcc.
- Prepared the check build stage for whenever speex get checks.
- Cosmetic cleanup.

rpmlint says:

[mimock@home mingw32-speex]$ rpmlint -v *rpm
mingw32-speex.noarch: I: checking
mingw32-speex.src: I: checking
2 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

Again no Koji link due to dependency on mingw32-libogg (bug #529548). Upstream does not seem to provide any tests, but it builds cleanly in mock.

Blocking needsponsor as you do not appear to be a member of the packager group.
