Description Steven Pritchard 2005-09-03 16:36:52 EDT
Spec Name or Url: http://ftp.kspei.com/pub/steve/rpms/perl-Apache-Session/perl-Apache-Session.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://ftp.kspei.com/pub/steve/rpms/perl-Apache-Session-1.6-1.src.rpm
These modules provide persistent storage for arbitrary data, in arbitrary
backing stores.  The details of interacting with the backing store are
abstracted to make all backing stores behave alike.  The programmer simply
interacts with a tied hash.
Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-09-07 19:35:10 EDT
You beat me to this one by four days. ;)


- rpmlint checks return nothing
- meets naming, packaging guidelines
- spec in am. english, legible
- source matches upstream
- compiles on devel (x86)
- no missing, unnecessary BR
- no libs, locales, docs, or need for -devel
- not relocatable
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code not content
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- no need for .desktop


- License is GPL or Artistic, not just Artistic.

- I don't see any reason to conditionalize %check. Just go ahead and run it (and
always use the BR)

- You probably want to use %{perl_vendorlib}/Apache/ instead of
%{perl_vendorlib}/* in %files, otherwise, you won't own the directories that are

Post a fixed spec file and I'll approve this package.

*** Bug 167753 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Steven Pritchard 2005-09-08 14:43:40 EDT
Oddly, almost every .pm says "Distribute under the Artistic License" while
README says "Distribute under the same terms as Perl itself".  I saw the line in
Session.pm first.

So do we call it GPL/Artistic or just Artistic?
Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-09-08 15:06:42 EDT
Go with what the source says. Might not be a bad idea to point out the
discontinuity to upstream, but don't let it hold you back on this package.
