Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 176528

Spec Name or Url: http://fedora.ivazquez.net/files/extras/MochiKit.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://fedora.ivazquez.net/files/extras/MochiKit-1.1-1.src.rpm
FYI, 1.2 is out.
W: MochiKit invalid-license MIT/Academic
The code is indeed under both MIT and the Academic Free license (
http://www.opensource.org/licenses/afl-2.1.php ) and so meets the packaging
guidelines but I don't know how to satisfy rpmlint.
Are there selinux isues with pointing the web server into /usr/share? Perhaps
/var/www would be a better location? (It kind of gives me indigestion to put
such things under /var, but there is precedent in httpd-manual.)

Something I discovered (which gives *me* indigestion...) is that httpd has full
read access to usr_t. Yes, that's right, Apache can read almost anything under /usr.
I will update the package to 1.2 when I get a chance.
Sorry for taking so long....
After seeing the Cacti package go in, I'll drop any objection I had to storing
the files in /usr/share. And rpmlint only complains about the license, which is
not an issue since the license is valid.
No rpmlint blockers, just the end-of-line warning.
Package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
License is acceptable and matches License: tag.
Specfile is properly named, legible, well-written, well-commented and uses
Source file matches upstream.
Package builds and installs on FC3 and FC4.
I'd just like clarification on one thing. It's not common practise to install
package tests under %doc (or even to install them at all). I understand that
it's not really possible to execute those tests in any meaningful way at build
time, but I wonder what your reasoning is behind including them in the final
package. Examples are already included, so the tests don't really add much in
the way of documentation.
You're right, it doesn't make much sense. Updated.
Built under FC4 and devel.
