Description Jamie Lennox 2013-09-19 00:11:37 EDT
Spec URL: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/52259114/python-falcon.spec
SRPM URL: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/52259114/python-falcon-0.1.7-1.fc19.src.rpm
Description: Falcon is a high-performance Python framework for building cloud APIs. It encourages the REST architectural style, and tries to do as little as possible while remaining highly effective. It will be a requirement of the marconi openstack component.

This is my first package so i am in need of a sponsor.

Comment 1 Christopher Meng 2013-09-22 22:35:36 EDT
1. BuildRequires:  python-setuptools-devel


BuildRequires:  python-setuptools


BuildRequires:  python-devel


BuildRequires:  python2-devel

2. rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT is not needed in modern system.

3. Good to see using %{__python2}, but you forgot it in %install

4. %{python_sitearch} --> %{python2_sitearch}

5. You forgot to use nose or tox to test as RPM %check.


6. No python3 support? Why?

7. You can add features listed on pypi as RPM %description:


- Intuitive routing via URI templates and resource classes
- Easy access to headers and bodies through request and response classes
- Idiomatic HTTP error responses via a handy exception base class
- DRY request processing using global, resource, and method hooks
- Snappy unit testing through WSGI helpers and mocks
- 20% speed boost when Cython is available
- Python 2.6, Python 2.7, PyPy and Python 3.3 support
- Speed, speed, and more speed!

Thanks for the review Christopher.

I've updated the SPEC and SRPM. Same location as before.

Largely ok, the mixture of %{buildroot} and $RPM_BUILD_ROOT is largely cosmetic, but please do fix it to consistently use on or the other form prior to doing any official builds.


I will sponsor you here shortly.  welcome to fedora.
