Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-05-13 23:31:01 UTC
Spec URL:

Test::Expect is a module for automated driving and testing of
terminal-based programs. It is handy for testing interactive programs
which have a prompt, and is based on the same concepts as the Tcl Expect
tool. As in Expect::Simple, the Expect object is made available for

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2006-05-17 00:05:13 UTC
Module::Build is still having trouble in development; I'll review this on FC5. 
(We really should try to help Steve with that.)

* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* 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:
   b22cb4575d910bb2d36e506a958da300  Test-Expect-0.30.tar.gz
   b22cb4575d910bb2d36e506a958da300  Test-Expect-0.30.tar.gz-srpm
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* package builds in mock (FC5, x86_64), with perl-Expect and perl-Expect-Simple
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane.
* no shared libraries are present.
* package is not relocatable.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* %check is present and all tests pass:
   All tests successful.
   Files=1, Tests=18,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.08 cusr +  0.04 csys =  0.12 CPU)
* no scriptlets 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.

APPROVED, but note that you won't be able to build on the development branch
until the Module::Build problem gets worked out.

Last saturday I started looking into it but gave up after one hour or so - I
also wasn't able to see why perl(YAML) < 0.49 is being required.  I will try
again later in the day and/or tomorrow.

Comment 3 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-05-18 21:51:57 UTC
Thanks for the review.

Imported and built for FC-5 and devel.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=191622 - cweyl implied he's not interested in EPEL, and at todays EPEL meeting Smooge suggested I should just put the requests through.
