Please upload your SRPM to a place which is accessible with a direct wget call.
That allows tools like fedora-review (https://fedorahosted.org/FedoraReview/) to automatically detect the SRPM. Also you cannot download the SRPM from koji after the build is done. And the spec file alone is not enough since patches and sources are not included there.

The SRPM is a package which basically contains the .spec file together with all its dependencies (sources and patches mainly).

jakepetroules's scratch build of qbs-1.4.2-1.fc22.src.rpm for rawhide completed http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=11248240

Comment 6 Jake Petroules 2015-10-18 19:54:49 UTC
So, how can we start moving this review process forward? This has already been in the works since 2012 or 2013 and I'd really like to get things moving.

Generally, you can get sponsored into the packager group when you comment at some package reviews by yourself or become a co-maintainer of an existing package.

Unfortunately, I can not sponsor you. Though are you interested in mono package reviews - besides Qt stuff?

Raphael, I already have too much on my plate to get involved with the Mono package reviews.

Comment 12 Michael Schwendt 2016-12-24 10:10:39 UTC
(!) 404 not found for the src.rpm

> # Required for running the tests
> BuildRequires:  pkgconfig(Qt5Quick)
> BuildRequires:  glibc-static
> BuildRequires:  libstdc++-static

Hmmm. Does the comment above that also refer to the two -static packages?

Why would tests require linking statically?

Since BuildRequires apply to the entire package, the availability of the static libs in the buildroot can be problematic due to linking other executables statically (either accidentally, unknowingly or because of build defaults changing eventually). That would be something to avoid by adding guards or finding ways to eliminate static linking in those tests.



Has "fedora-review -b 1262515" been run for this ticket yet?

QBS unfortunately is deprecated now (https://blog.qt.io/blog/2018/10/29/deprecation-of-qbs/)

This is an automatic check from review-stats script.

This review request ticket hasn't been updated for some time. We're sorry
it is taking so long. If you're still interested in packaging this software
into Fedora repositories, please respond to this comment clearing the

You may want to update the specfile and the src.rpm to the latest version
available and to propose a review swap on Fedora devel mailing list to increase
chances to have your package reviewed. If this is your first package and you
need a sponsor, you may want to post some informal reviews. Read more at

Without any reply, this request will shortly be considered abandoned
and will be closed.
Thank you for your patience.
