Description Felix Kaechele 2015-02-19 10:05:52 UTC
Spec URL: https://heffer.fedorapeople.org/review/fastd/fastd.spec
SRPM URL: https://heffer.fedorapeople.org/review/fastd/fastd-17-1.fc21.src.rpm
fastd is a secure tunneling daemon with some unique features:

 - Very small binary (about 100KB on OpenWRT in the default configuration,
   including all dependencies besides libc)
 - Exchangable crypto methods
 - Transport over UDP for simple usage behind NAT
 - Can run in 1:1 and 1:n scenarios
 - There are no server and client roles defined by the protocol, this is just
   defined by the usage.
 - Only one instance of the daemon is needed on each host to create a full mesh
   If no full mesh is established, a routing protocol is necessary to enable
   hosts that are not connected directly to reach each other

Fedora Account System Username: heffer

This package is often used to support wireless mesh networks by tunneling the mesh through the internet to other, more remote wireless nodes.

Hi Felix!

[ ] Please remove COPYRIGHT from %doc and add
       %license COPYRIGHT
    to the files section

I will do another review, if libuecc is available upstream. So long it will fail to build on all plattforms: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=9042593


Comment 2 Christopher Meng 2015-02-24 11:31:35 UTC
Good to see fastd.

Comment 3 Felix Kaechele 2015-03-01 11:29:45 UTC
Thanks, Florian!

I've edited the spec file with your recommendations:

Spec URL: https://heffer.fedorapeople.org/review/fastd/fastd.spec
SRPM URL: https://heffer.fedorapeople.org/review/fastd/fastd-17-2.fc23.src.rpm

As libuecc is already in rawhide fastd can now be build on koji and mock for target rawhide.
