Okay I'm willing to pick up the synce* submissions from late August to do the
package guidelines review. But I don't have the winCE based hardware to test
functionality against. Is there a way to fake a device with synce or anything
like that?

I can get started on reviewing synce-software-manager first and then move on to
the other ones from there.


Comment 3 Andreas Bierfert 2005-12-08 09:59:07 EST
Thanks :)

Hm, to my knowledge there is no non-tivial way to fake a winCE device. Does
anybody know more about this?

Okay I've gone over the review. 2 blockers
1) Need to add BuildRequires: libgnomeui-devel
I fixed this to do my review and located here:

2) Need to add a desktop file and associated scriptlet and Requires
I haven't fixed this, You'll need to add a .desktop as a SOURCE1 and then use
the instructions in http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines for
Desktop Files.

Please add the desktop file and respin the srpm so I can do a final review of
the changes.

Full review:
- GOOD: builds in mock on an fc4 host system.
- GOOD: rpmlint returns clean.
- GOOD: The package is named according to the PackageNamingGuidelines.
- GOOD: The spec file name matches the base package %{name}
- GOOD: package meets the PackagingGuidelines.
- GOOD: The package is licensed with an open-source compatible license (MIT)
- GOOD: The License field in the package spec file matches the actual license.
- GOOD: The source package includes the text of the license(s) in its own file,
COPYING and is included in %doc.
- GOOD: The spec file is written American English.
- GOOD: The spec file for the package is be legible. 
- GOOD: The sources used to build the package match the upstream source.
- Fixed: The package must successfully compiles and build into binary rpms on
fc4 i386 and fc-devel i386.
        Needed to add BuildRequires: libgnomeui-devel 
- GOOD: package does not contain any BuildRequires that are listed in the
exceptions section of PackagingGuidelines.
- Fixed: All other Build dependencies must be listed in BuildRequires.
        Need to add BuildRequires: libgnomeui-devel
- GOOD: Uses the %find_lang macro.
- GOOD: No shared library files located in the dynamic linker's default paths
- GOOD: package owns all directories that it creates. 
- GOOD: package does not contain any duplicate files in the %files listing.
- GOOD: Permissions on files must be set properly. 
- GOOD: package has a %clean section, which contains rm -rf %{buildroot} (or
- GOOD: package consistently use macros, as described in the macros section of
- GOOD: package contains code, or permissable content. 
- GOOD: No large documentation files.
- GOOD: %doc files do not affect the runtime of the application. 
- GOOD: No header files or static libraries.
- GOOD: No files used by pkgconfig (.pc files).
- GOOD: No library files with a suffix (e.g. libfoo.so.1.1)

- BAD: Packages containing GUI applications must include a %{name}.desktop file,
and that file must be properly installed with desktop-file-install in the
%install section. This is described in detail in the desktop files section of
PackagingGuidelines. If you feel that your packaged GUI application does not
need a .desktop file, you must put a comment in the spec file with your explanation.

I'll help testing, I have a wince device. But I have little time at the moment,
Comment 7 Aurelien Bompard 2005-12-12 11:59:05 EST
Review for release 3:
* RPM name is OK
* Source synce-software-manager-0.9.0.tar.gz is the same as upstream
* Builds fine in mock
* rpmlint of synce-software-manager looks OK
* File list of synce-software-manager looks OK
* Works fine
I would APPROVE this version, I'm changing the blocker bug. Jef, if you
disagree, feel free to set it back.
