Description Kevin Fenzi 2005-09-22 22:13:41 EDT
Spec Name or Url: http://www.scrye.com/~kevin/fedora-extras/fwrestart.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://www.scrye.com/~kevin/fedora-extras/fwrestart-1.01-3.src.rpm
Description: This program can automatically detect when changes to the firewall block
the administrative shell session, and to take corrective action

fwrestart uses terminal auto-response codes to safely re-start firewall
rules over a remote shell session.  It sends a request to your terminal
(xterm, for example), which responds back automatically.  When that
response is received, ensuring that fwrestart can communicate with the
terminal, fwrestart then issues a command to restart the firewall.
It then tries another request to the terminal, and if that is not
received within 5 seconds, a command is run to clear the firewall and
an appropriate error is generated.

 + license OK and included
 + source matches upstream
 + code not content
 + specfile OK
 + rpmlint OK
 + builds on FC4

This is a very simple package (a single python script) and I don't see 
anything the matter with it so its APPROVED.

Thanks. Built fine for development, and branches requested for fc3/fc4. 

closing with NEXTRELEASE per new package process.
