Description klaatu 2017-02-11 09:40:21 UTC
Spec URL: extracturl.spec
SRPM URL: https://klaatu.fedorapeople.org/extracturl/extracturl-1.6.1-1.fc25.src.rpm
Description: A Perl script that extracts URLs from correctly-encoded MIME email messages or plain text. This can be used either as a pre-parser for urlview, or to replace urlview entirely, notably in the mutt email client.
Fedora Account System Username: klaatu

Apparently there was a package for this, but it appeoars to have been abandoned:

Successful Koji build --scratch: 

Not my first RPM, but my first Fedora package. Need sponsor.

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2017-03-14 21:41:17 UTC
If added "BuildRequires: perl-generators", you would get automatic dependencies for Perl modules. Take a look at your built binary package:

  rpm -qpR extracturl-1.6.1-1.fc25.noarch.rpm

> cp -pr extract_urlview.sample %{buildroot}%{_docdir}/%{name}

> /usr/share/doc/extracturl/extract_urlview.sample

Much too complicated and would be missing the directory if no other %doc files were present. Why don't you simply include that file like the other %doc files?

  %doc NEWS README AUTHORS extract_urlview.sample

> /usr/share/man/man1/extract_url.1.gz

More convenient in the long term would be


because it would not require a change of the spec file, if building in an environment where rpmbuild's compression of manuals is disabled or changed to a different compression program.

Comment 3 klaatu 2017-04-14 07:37:08 UTC
With this as the BuildRequires line:

BuildRequires: perl-generators

the build fails.


So I changed it back to a manual list for BuildRequires. All other changes you suggested, I have made, and that build works:


Comment 4 klaatu 2017-04-14 07:42:02 UTC
Clarification: locally, 'BuildRequires: perl-generators' builds.

It fails when building via Koji, and I don't know how to fix that.

Comment 5 Filip Szymański 2017-05-16 08:58:20 UTC
My old spec file: https://fszymanski.fedorapeople.org/extracturl/extracturl.spec

Comment 6 klaatu 2018-01-07 23:30:26 UTC
I've modified my spec file to include some of the suggestions here.

Spec file and latest RPM builds on f27: https://klaatu.fedorapeople.org/extracturl/

Koji is giving me this error:

$ koji build  --scratch rawhide SRPMS/extracturl-1.6.1-3.fc27.src.rpm 
AuthError: unable to obtain a session

I've renewed my certs with `fedora-cert -n` but when I attempt to verify, I get Python errors. I assume I'll file a bug against fedora-cert about that, separately (unless it's an easy fix).

$ fedora-cert -v
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fedora-cert", line 85, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/fedora-cert", line 52, in main
    if fedora_cert.certificate_expired():
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fedora_cert/__init__.py", line 83, in certificate_expired
    if my_cert.has_expired():
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'has_expired'

Comment 7 klaatu 2018-05-02 18:42:36 UTC
Solved the koji error with

$ kinit $USER
$ klist -A

Comment 8 Robert-André Mauchin 🐧 2018-05-12 16:41:30 UTC
 - Use the  %make_install macro to preserve timestamps:

make install DESTDIR=%{buildroot} → %make_install

 - Bump the package to the latest version and I'll review it

Comment 9 Mike Oliver 2018-09-20 16:15:43 UTC
I've bumped the package version for klaatu and made the suggested changes.

SPEC: https://mklvr.fedorapeople.org/extracturl/extracturl.spec
SRPM: https://mklvr.fedorapeople.org/extracturl/extracturl-1.6.2-1.fc28.src.rpm
KOJI: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=29780055

Comment 10 Mike Oliver 2018-09-20 17:15:18 UTC
Also, I can take over this package is klaatu is no longer interested in it.

Comment 11 Robert-André Mauchin 🐧 2018-09-21 15:22:46 UTC
 - You should use macros in %files:


 - Use a more meaningful archive name with:

Source0:        https://github.com/m3m0ryh0l3/%{name}/archive/v%{version}/%{name}-%{version}.tar.gz

 - Fix the dependencies:

BuildRequires:  perl-generators
BuildRequires:  perl-interpreter
BuildRequires:  perl(Env)
BuildRequires:  perl(Getopt::Std)
BuildRequires:  perl(HTML::Parser)
BuildRequires:  perl(MIME::Parser)
BuildRequires:  perl(Pod::Checker)
BuildRequires:  perl(Pod::Usage)
BuildRequires:  perl(POSIX)
BuildRequires:  perl(strict)
BuildRequires:  perl(warnings)
BuildRequires:  perl-podlators
Requires:       perl(Curses::UI)
Requires:       perl(Getopt::Long)
Requires:       perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_%(eval "`%{__perl} -V:version`"; echo $version))
Recommends:     perl(MIME::QuotedPrint)
Recommends:     perl(URI::Find)

 - Split the description to stay below 80 characters per line:

extracturl.noarch: E: description-line-too-long C A Perl script that extracts URLs from correctly-encoded MIME email messages or plain text.

 - Capitalize the summary:

extracturl.noarch: W: summary-not-capitalized C url extractor commonly used for mutt

Comment 13 Robert-André Mauchin 🐧 2018-09-21 21:18:37 UTC
Looks good, package approved.

Not sure that the repo request will go through as you're not the reporter… if it doesn't work, make a new Review Request and mark this oni as duplicate.

Comment 14 notklaatu 2018-09-21 23:48:14 UTC
I would still like to maintain this package, although I don't know what the next step in that process is.

Comment 15 Mike Oliver 2018-09-22 01:50:28 UTC
If you're not already in the packager group you'll need to seek sponsorship:

Comment 16 Mattia Verga 2021-06-11 14:20:59 UTC
Package never imported, resetting ticket status.

Comment 17 Package Review 2021-07-12 00:45:17 UTC
