Description Oliver Falk 2005-08-11 12:08:42 UTC
Spec Name or Url: http://filelister.linux-kernel.at/downloads/packages/FC_EXTRAS_APPROVAL/perl-YAML-Parser-Syck/YAML-Parser-Syck.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://filelister.linux-kernel.at/downloads/packages/FC_EXTRAS_APPROVAL/perl-YAML-Parser-Syck/perl-YAML-Parser-Syck-0.01-3.src.rpm
libsyck is a *gift* from a gifted Stiff named 'Why'.

    YAML::Parser::Syck is an XS module that binds libsyck to Perl.

Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2005-09-07 12:37:25 UTC

- rpmlint clean
- package naming OK
- package meets guidelines
- license is same as perl
- spec file written in English and is legible
- sources match upstream
- package builds OK in FC4 and in mock for rawhide (i386)
- no locales, libraries, subpackages or pkgconfigs to worry about
- not relocatable
- no directory ownership or permissions issues
- no duplicate files
- code, not content
- no large docs
- docs don't affect runtime
- no scriptlets


- spec file should be perl-YAML-Parser-Syck.spec, not YAML-Parser-Syck.spec
- redundant BR: perl
- missing BR: syck-devel
- license is same as perl, i.e. dual GPL/Artistic, not just Artistic
- license text not included
- package is arch-specific so you should be using perl_vendorarch, not
- %clean should unconditionally remove the buildroot


- what does that %description mean?
  "libsyck is a *gift* from a gifted Stiff named 'Why'."
- I suggest manually expanding the %pkgname macro in your spec file to
  improve clarity
- http://search.cpan.org/dist/YAML-Parser-Syck/ would be a better URL
- "|| :" after %%check is redundant in Fedora Extras
- compiler optimiztion flags setup could be simplified to:
  %{__perl} Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=vendor OPTIMIZE="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS"
  %{__make} %{?_smp_mflags}
- include "Changes" as %doc
- if using macros for commands, e.g. %{__make}, be consistent about it and use
  them everywhere

> Patch applied. May I have your 'approved' word? :-)

With the patch, yes.

Any comment on the %description?

Comment 5 Paul Howarth 2006-01-04 16:57:24 UTC
Ping Oliver; this package has been approved for nearly 4 months.

Comment 6 Paul Howarth 2006-03-07 16:36:45 UTC
This package appears to be orphaned without having made it into cvs...

Comment 7 Oliver Falk 2006-03-07 16:44:44 UTC
Uupps... I'll import it tomorrow...

Comment 8 Paul Howarth 2006-03-22 13:18:52 UTC
Package is built; can this one be closed now?
