Description: XML transition from PHP4 domxml to PHP5 dom module

This is a lib for limesurvey and does not have any associated documents which is the only warning from rpmlint.

Comment 1 David Nalley 2010-01-30 05:43:26 UTC
php pulls in a lot of dependencies, try php-common instead. 

Package name doesn't conform to guidelines:

Based on my quick checking license field in spec is questionable because they mention LGPL (which would be LGPLv2+) and yet has a LGPLv3 logo. 
No license in source, so website is the 'canonical reference' for what license they use.  

It'd be nice for you to contact upstream and ask them for: 
1. clarification on which license.
2. To identify specifically which license in source
3. To include a license file. 

If they only do 1, include text of email exchange as a doc, and won't issue another release.

Any news on this review ?

I also need this lib for phpCas

According to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/PHP#File_Placement
Should be installed in /usr/share/php/domxml-php4-php5 subdir.

At least, xml extension must be required, so :
< Requires:       php >= 5.1
> Requires:       php-xml >= 5.1

About Source0, upstream is 
So you must add a comment how you get/generate the domxml-php4-php5.tar.gz

Groups is probably Development/Libraries

Some work : http://remi.fedorapeople.org/php-domxml-php4-php5.spec

Comment 4 David Nalley 2010-03-25 02:40:03 UTC

Is this something you can pick back up? It's been sitting for about 60 days now. I know $reallife has been hammering you pretty hard. If you want to drop this package it looks like Remi is willing to pick it up, but it's your call.

If Remi would like to run with it, go for it!  I really don't have time right now.

Comment 6 Remi Collet 2010-05-10 16:54:31 UTC
Well I take it.
So I close this bug as duplicate of new review.
