Description Petr Pisar 2014-07-31 15:15:29 UTC
Spec URL: https://ppisar.fedorapeople.org/perl-TestML/perl-TestML.spec
SRPM URL: https://ppisar.fedorapeople.org/perl-TestML/perl-TestML-0.37-1.fc22.src.rpm
TestML <http://www.testml.org/> is a generic, programming language agnostic,
meta language for writing unit tests. The idea is that you can use the same
test files in multiple implementations of a given programming idea. Then you
can be more certain that your application written in, say, Python matches your
Perl implementation.

In a nutshell you write a bunch of data tests that have inputs and expected
results. Using a simple syntax, you specify what functions the data must pass
through to produce the expected results. You use a bridge class to write the
data functions that pass the data through your application.

In Perl 5, TestML module is the evolution of the Test::Base module. It has
a superset of Test:Base's goals. The data markup syntax is currently exactly
the same as Test::Base.

Ingy has released 5 new versions in the last four days.  I'll review this version, but would be happy if you want to upgrade to the most recent version.

Comment 2 David Dick 2014-08-07 10:32:53 UTC
License is good.

Package builds at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=7253979

rpmlint reports incorrect spelling mistakes and one acceptable one.

recommend replacing "superset" with "super set" or "super-set" in %description

Build and RunTime requires are correct.

There are no additional Build or RunTime requires in 0.42 (latest version) and no license differences either.
