Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-04-03 13:08:00 EDT
Spec Name or Url:

SRPM Name or Url:

IO::Interface adds methods to IO::Socket objects that allows them to
be used to retrieve and change information about the network
interfaces on your system.  In addition to the object-oriented access
methods, you can use a function-oriented style.
Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2006-04-07 18:32:30 EDT
Package builds fine in mock and rpmlint is silent.

Issues: BuildRequires: perl is not allowed.

* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written, uses macros consistently and
conforms to the Perl template.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  It's not included separately in the
package, but this is not necessary as the upstream tarball does not include it.
* source files match upstream:
   91d5029a32302aa02414c9c8e3353cec  IO-Interface-0.98.tar.gz
   91d5029a32302aa02414c9c8e3353cec  IO-Interface-0.98.tar.gz-srpm
* package builds in mock.
X BuildRequires: perl not permitted.
* a shared library is present, but it is not in the library search path and
there is no need to run ldconfig.
* package is not relocatable.
* owns the directory it creates.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no libtool .la droppings.
* not a GUI app.
* The package owns %{perl_archlib}/IO, which will probably also be owned by
any arch-specific module under the IO:: namespace.  However, none of the
dependencies create this directory so there is no alternative but for this
package to own it.

The steering committee has changed the rule and allowed BR: perl, so I drop my
