Description greg.hellings 2016-01-14 15:14:19 UTC
Note: this is a request to create a new package just for the EPEL7 branch. Currently rubygem-minitest exists in base EL packages, meaning we cannot make version 5 available in EPEL or it would mask the core EL package which is on the 4.x series.

Spec URL: http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/rubygem-minitest.git/tree/rubygem-minitest.spec?h=epel7
SRPM URL: https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//work/tasks/1148/12541148/rubygem-minitest5-5.8.1-2.el7.src.rpm
Description: minitest provides a complete suite of testing facilities supporting
TDD, BDD, mocking, and benchmarking.

minitest/unit is a small and incredibly fast unit testing framework.
It provides a rich set of assertions to make your tests clean and

minitest/spec is a functionally complete spec engine. It hooks onto
minitest/unit and seamlessly bridges test assertions over to spec

minitest/benchmark is an awesome way to assert the performance of your
algorithms in a repeatable manner. Now you can assert that your newb
co-worker doesn't replace your linear algorithm with an exponential

minitest/mock by Steven Baker, is a beautifully tiny mock (and stub)
object framework.

minitest/pride shows pride in testing and adds coloring to your test
output. I guess it is an example of how to write IO pipes too. :P
minitest/unit is meant to have a clean implementation for language
implementors that need a minimal set of methods to bootstrap a working
test suite. For example, there is no magic involved for test-case

minitest doesn't reinvent anything that ruby already provides, like:
classes, modules, inheritance, methods. This means you only have to
learn ruby to use minitest and all of your regular OO practices like
extract-method refactorings still apply.

I would appreciate it if you would review my review request (bug 1279755)

Comment 2 Upstream Release Monitoring 2016-01-26 03:29:59 UTC
mtasaka's scratch build of rubygem-minitest5-5.8.1-2.el7.src.rpm for epel7 completed http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=12684502

Comment 3 Mamoru TASAKA 2016-01-26 05:18:56 UTC
As this is basically EPEL branch request for existing rubygem-minitest master, approving as it is.

    This package (rubygem-minitest5) is APPROVED
    by mtasaka

Some suggestions:

- Consider to update to 5.8.4
- Rakefile is not needed as this is alike "Makefile" on autotools
- We suggest removing test/ directory on runtime package:
  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Ruby?rd=Packaging/Ruby#Running_test_suites "Do not ship tests"

Comment 4 Gwyn Ciesla 2016-01-26 15:55:14 UTC

Thanks! I've implemented all three of your suggestions in the newest package.

Comment 7 Vít Ondruch 2016-01-27 13:32:25 UTC
What is the point of having this package in Fedora at this moment? It is already 4th source of Minitest.

I would suggest to retire it in Fedora:
