lowlevel DNS/DNSSEC operations are supported. We also define a higher
level API which allows a programmer to (for instance) create or sign
Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-12-11 18:21:59 EST
Again, I made some minor cleanups:

- used %{?dist} (not mandatory)
- moved rm -rf %{buildroot} from %prep to %install
- # remove .la files
  rm -rf %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/*.la
- %{_mandir}/*/* doesn't need to be marked as %doc
- nuked empty %pre
- used %post -p /sbin/ldconfig
- used %postun -p /sbin/ldconfig
- no need for explicit "Requires: openssl", libcrypto.so.6 is detected as a dep
- ldns is not LGPL, it is BSD

Besides those minor items, it looked good. The library doesn't use versioned .so
files correctly, so its alright to have the .so files in the main package
instead of the usual split. I'm going to attach my cleaned-up spec, the review
is based on my spec. 


- rpmlint checks return:
W: ldns devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/lib/libldns.so
If libldns.so.1.0.0 existed, then I would want libldns.so in -devel, but since
it doesn't... safe to ignore.

- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines
- license (BSD) OK, text in %doc, matches source
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source matches upstream
- package compiles on devel (x86)
- no missing BR
- no unnecessary BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all directories that it creates
- no duplicate files
- permissions ok
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- no need for .desktop file
- devel package ok
- no .la files
- post/postun ldconfig ok
- devel requires base package n-v-r 

APPROVED (assuming that you use my spec file changes)

Comment 3 Paul Wouters 2005-12-12 20:37:31 EST

incorporated and made new srpm and spec file:


No changes from my end. So I will put this in FE once I gained access.

Paul, you should already have access. This package (and nsd) are approved.
