Description Ralf Corsepius 2005-08-11 05:17:14 EDT
Spec Name or Url: ftp://packman.iu-bremen.de/fedora/SRPMS/perl-Text-Quoted.spec
SRPM Name or Url: ftp://packman.iu-bremen.de/fedora/SRPMS/perl-Text-Quoted-1.8-1.src.rpm

Text::Quoted examines the structure of some text which may contain multiple
different levels of quoting, and turns the text into a nested data structure.
Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2005-08-19 08:10:01 EDT

- rpmlint not quite clean - see below
- package and spec file naming is OK
- package meets guidelines
- license is same as perl
- spec file written in English and is legible
- source matches upstream
- builds OK on FC4 and in mock for devel
- BR's OK
- no locales, libraries, subpackages, pkgconfigs etc. to worry about
- not relocatable
- no directory ownership issues
- Quoted.pm installed with wrong permissions - see below
- no duplicate files
- %clean section present and correct
- macro usage is consistent
- code, not content
- no large docs
- docs don't affect runtime


- rpmlint output
E: perl-Text-Quoted script-without-shellbang
This script does not begins with a shellbang. It will prevent its execution.

This is a permissions problem and can be fixed by adding after %setup:
chmod -x Quoted.pm

- BR: perl is redundant
- find of empty .bs files is redundant

These can be fixed post-import.

This is a perl module (*.pm) and not a script. Perl modules normally aren't
executed directly, so they don't have to carry a shebang, nor are they supposed
to be executable. 

IMO, this yet another case of a "false error" from rpmlint.
Comment 3 Paul Howarth 2005-08-19 09:27:32 EDT
Without the chmod referred to in the review, it *is* installed as executeable
and therefore it isn't a "false error".
Comment 4 Ralf Corsepius 2005-08-19 10:01:45 EDT
Urgs, you are right. Sorry for having missed this. To be fixed RSN.

Package Change Request
Package Name: perl-Text-Quoted
New Branches: EL-4 EL-5
Owners: tremble
Comment 6 Jason Tibbitts 2010-03-01 11:51:14 EST
CVS done.

Note that when we add EPEL branches like this, we'll change the owner as requested but the other parameters such as comaintainers are copied.  If this isn't what's desired, please fix things up in pkgdb.
