Description Paul Howarth 2006-01-31 09:20:27 EST
Spec Name or Url: http://www.city-fan.org/~paul/extras/perl-Math-GMP/perl-Math-GMP.spec
SRPM Name or Url: http://www.city-fan.org/~paul/extras/perl-Math-GMP/perl-Math-GMP-2.04-1.src.rpm

Math::GMP was designed to be a drop-in replacement both for Math::BigInt and
for regular integer arithmetic. Unlike BigInt, though, Math::GMP uses the GNU
gmp library for all of its calculations, as opposed to straight Perl functions.
This can result in speed improvements.
Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2006-02-07 03:27:53 EST
rpmlint is completely silent.
Package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
Specfile is properly named, legible, and uses macros consistently.
BuildRequires: is proper.
License is acceptable, matches License: tag and is included as %doc.
Source file md5sum matches upstream.
Package builds and installs on FC4 x86.

Thanks for the review. It turns out I needed to patch the testsuite to get it to
work on 64-bit arches (see http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=12751).

Build on target fedora-development-extras has now succeeded.

I've updated owners.list and requested an FC-4 branch.
