Description Dale Macartney 2013-10-18 03:37:21 EDT
SPEC: http://dbmacartney.fedorapeople.org/pgtoolkit/pgtoolkit.spec
SRPM: http://dbmacartney.fedorapeople.org/pgtoolkit/pgtoolkit-1.0.0-1.fc19.src.rpm

PgToolkit is a collection of tools for PostgreSQL maintenance. 
PgToolkit so far uses the utility pgcompact to reduce PostgreSQL table and index bloat from databases.

Comment 2 Christopher Meng 2013-10-18 03:46:47 EDT
Drop-by ideas:

1. Requires:	perl-DBD-Pg

Have you tried

Requires:       perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_%(eval "`%{__perl} -V:version`"; echo $version))

If RPM still can't find perl-DBD-Pg, you should add it.

However, I would have question about 

Requires:	perl-DBD-Pg

Since Fedora never suggests this way but this:


2. Better add a comment at %build so we know nothing is going to be built.

3. %description

Too long, longer than 79 chars limitation, please change.

4. cp -drv lib/PgToolkit/ %{buildroot}%{perl_archlib}


cp -adrv lib/PgToolkit/ %{buildroot}%{perl_archlib}

5. I would just write:


to replace tons of lines in %files.

BTW I think %{perl_archlib} is wrong for noarch packages.

Comment 5 Dale Macartney 2013-10-21 03:47:50 EDT
Contacted author of pgtoolkit for confirmation of license as tarball was not very clear. Updated spec to use PostgreSQL license.
