Description Saggi Mizrahi 2014-01-22 13:10:51 UTC
Spec URL: http://smizrahi.fedorapeople.org/ioprocess/ioprocess.spec
SRPM URL: http://smizrahi.fedorapeople.org/ioprocess/ioprocess-0.3-1.fc20.src.rpm
When performing IO the process goes to an unkillable state (D state) until the IO returns. This is a problem for VDSM since it might try and access storage that is unavailable and will get stuck. Since it can't be killed we can't even start a new service since the port is already taken. There is a hack to solve this issue in VDSM but we decided that making a general purpose tool to solve such problems is the correct way to go as we are not the only ones that might encounter these issues and having a single project to maintain will be simple for everyone.

Comment 1 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2014-02-26 17:43:18 UTC
Hi Saggi,

Please check the below comments:

- Package should contains BuildRequires: python2-devel or python3-devel

- Rpmlint
Checking: ioprocess-0.3-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm
ioprocess.src:6: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 6, tab: line 1)
ioprocess.src: W: invalid-url Source0: ioprocess-0.3.tar.gz
2 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 2 warnings.

For the second warning, please see:

- Package requires other packages for directories it uses.
- Package must own all directories that it creates.

You might want to replace:
from %{python_sitelib}/ioprocess/*.py* to %{python_sitelib}/ioprocess/

Comment 2 Saggi Mizrahi 2014-03-02 14:27:24 UTC
I reuploaded with everything (hopefully) fixed.

Same links as in #1

Comment 3 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2014-03-03 05:57:02 UTC
Hi Saggi,

I see the below issue, can you please double check?

- Sources used to build the package match the upstream source, as provided in
  the spec URL.
  Note: Upstream MD5sum check error, diff is in
  See: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/SourceURL

Source checksums

diff -r also reports differences

Also, for every change in the spec please increase the changelog.


Comment 4 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2014-03-04 18:30:30 UTC
Hello Saggi,

I couldn't see in my previous review but I do believe your package should be renamed to python-ioprocess [1] since you provide a python binding for the /usr/libexec/ioprocess right?

Other option:
Split your package into two.

- ioprocess which contains the libexec/ioprocess binary and docs. 
- python-ioprocess which is the module to access the ioprocess [1]

Almost forgot: Rename the deprecated macro
The unversioned macros, %{__python}, %{python_sitelib}, and %{python_sitearch} are deprecated. You should use %{__python2}, %{python2_sitelib}, and %{python2_sitearch} to explicitly reference the python2 interpreter instead. This is future proofing for the time when things will be switched over to python3 by default instead of python2.

[1] https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:NamingGuidelines#Addon_Packages_.28python_modules.29

After this review, your package seems good to me.

Comment 5 Saggi Mizrahi 2014-04-01 12:20:56 UTC
Dima supplied the required changes under my supervision.
Please needinfo him if you need anything else.


Comment 6 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2014-04-02 18:57:15 UTC

- Add the right data to (global commit macro) to any rpm tool be able to download the file. Global macro cannot be empty and the source file must be able to be downloaded.


- %changelog should be the last thing in the spec, currently in the middle of file

- Please always provide the .srpm in the below link as well:

You can test your self using:

# yum install fedora-review -y
# fedora-review --rpm-spec -n package.src.rpm

Comment 7 Christopher Meng 2014-04-03 01:14:48 UTC
1. Requires:	yajl

No need.

2. BuildRequires:	python
   BuildRequires:	python2-devel

Please leave only one of them.

3. Please put the changelog section at the bottom of the spec.

4. In python- subpackage,

Requires:       ioprocess

Isn't it Requires:       ioprocess = %{name}-%{version}

(Make sure no API/ABI breakage between different versions if you don't limit the version)

Comment 8 Christopher Meng 2014-04-03 03:05:14 UTC
Oh, a tpyo was found:

Requires:       ioprocess = %{name}-%{version}

Should be:

Requires:       ioprocess = %{version}-%{release}


Or you can use macros everywhere like:

Requires:       %{name} = %{version}-%{release}

Comment 10 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2014-04-08 21:46:27 UTC
Hello Saggi,

Your package got approved but please update the Source0 to use http:// instead of https://. 

As you can see below fedora-review tool complains about it:

INFO: Downloading (Source0): https://smizrahi.fedorapeople.org/ioprocess/ioprocess-0.3.tar.gz
WARNING: Cannot download url: https://smizrahi.fedorapeople.org/ioprocess/ioprocess-0.3.tar.gz

I have updated locally Source0 to use http and it works.

After this, please follow:

If you have any questions please let me know.
