Description Mohamed El Morabity 2015-07-28 11:06:43 EDT
Spec URL: https://melmorabity.fedorapeople.org/packages/fstrcmp/fstrcmp.spec
SRPM URL: https://melmorabity.fedorapeople.org/packages/fstrcmp/fstrcmp-0.7.D001-1.fc22.src.rpm
The fstrcmp package provides a library which may be used to make fuzzy
comparisons of strings and byte arrays. It also provides simple commands for use
in shell scripts.

Comment 1 Michael Cronenworth 2015-07-29 10:50:36 EDT
Upstream has marked their source files very strangely. Some files are marked GPL3+ and some are LGPL3+. While this isn't a problem I just wanted to point it out.

Package Review

[x] = Pass, [!] = Fail, [-] = Not applicable, [?] = Not evaluated
[ ] = Manual review needed

- Package does not contain duplicates in %files.
  Note: warning: File listed twice: /usr/lib64/libfstrcmp.so.0
  See: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#DuplicateFiles

  You have %{_libdir}/*.so.* in the spec listed twice.

- If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the license(s)
  in its own file, then that file, containing the text of the license(s)
  for the package is included in %license.
  Note: License file fstrcmp_license.1.gz is marked as %doc instead of

  This contains a duplicate copy of the LICENSE file contents. Might as well move it to the %license tag.

- The package contains tests, but they are not used. You can call them by "make t0001a", "make t0002a", etc.

Fix these issues and we can pass this review.

Comment 2 Mohamed El Morabity 2015-08-01 07:37:32 EDT
New release:

Spec URL: https://melmorabity.fedorapeople.org/packages/fstrcmp/fstrcmp.spec
SRPM URL: https://melmorabity.fedorapeople.org/packages/fstrcmp/fstrcmp-0.7.D001-2.fc22.src.rpm

- Fix duplicates in %files
- Mark license man page as %license
- Add unit tests in %check
Comment 3 Michael Cronenworth 2015-08-01 15:17:20 EDT
The %license tag only works on source-level files. The guidelines don't mention a man-page duplicate and what to do with it, so since we already have a copy of the license I'm going to make a judgement call to just remove the %license tag on the man page copy and ignore the review warning.
