Description Bernard Johnson 2009-11-21 15:58:22 EST
Spec URL: http://fedorapeople.org/~bjohnson/nettop.spec
SRPM URL: http://fedorapeople.org/~bjohnson/nettop-0.2.3-1.fc12.src.rpm
Description: Nettop is a program which looks like top, but is for network packets.

$ rpmlint *rpm
nettop.src: W: summary-not-capitalized top-like program for network packets
nettop.x86_64: W: summary-not-capitalized top-like program for network packets
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 2 warnings.

These warning can be ignored because it is the proper capitalization for this program name, it just happens to be at the beginning of the line.
Comment 1 Susi Lehtola 2009-11-24 09:14:29 EST
Change the summary to "A top-like program for network packets" to fix the rpmlint warnings.
Comment 2 Susi Lehtola 2009-11-24 09:16:49 EST
Furthermore, add comments in the spec file as to why Source1-2 and Patch0-2 are needed. Also, please rename your patches to start with nettop-,  e.g.

 # Patch to fix compilation errors 
 Patch0:         nettop-compile.patch

This way build directories stay cleaner.
Comment 3 Susi Lehtola 2009-11-24 09:18:59 EST
And a few more comments: use %{version} in the Source0 line to ease up the maintaining of the spec file.

The upstream project server seems to be down, so a review cannot be performed at this stage.

Offsite http://srparish.net/scripts/ seams down.

Meantime where links to upstream bugreports for each patches?

Comment 6 Bernard Johnson 2010-01-11 17:57:13 EST
I sent the author an email asking about the website.  I will let you know when I get a response.
Comment 7 Rafael Aquini 2010-08-09 22:33:17 EDT
PING

Since it's been more than six months with no progress; I guess this bug should be closed soon if there is no response, shouldn't it?
Comment 8 Rafael Aquini 2010-08-19 20:46:10 EDT
Due to the lack of response this review is now considered as stalled.
I'm closing this bug just as described in Fedora's Policy for stalled package
reviews
