PEAR::MDB2 is a merge of the PEAR::DB and Metabase php database abstraction

It provides a common API for all supported RDBMS. The main difference to most
other DB abstraction packages is that MDB2 goes much further to ensure

- does NOT include license from upstream

Approved, IMHO, though including a BSD license would be nice :)  Also, I can't
officially change the status to FE-ACCEPT, somebody else will have to do that.
Comment 2 Christopher Stone 2006-06-28 22:18:16 EDT
I asked tibbs to look into sponsering you last night, I'll nudge him again
tonight and see if he can get you to approve this package for me. 

Thanks for the review!
Comment 3 Brandon Holbrook 2006-06-28 22:21:16 EDT

One last thing I forgot to mention, %build is empty, and should probably just be
removed altogether... but not a showstopper
Comment 4 Christopher Stone 2006-06-29 02:34:32 EDT
I have updated the spec file to remove the %build, the only reference to a
license I could find was on http://pear.php.net/package/MDB2 which just links to
a license template.  I could not find any reference to an actual license at the
packages external home page http://oss.backendmedia.com/index.php?area=MDB2
Comment 5 Christopher Stone 2006-06-29 02:40:04 EDT
ah nevermind, the license is at the top of the source files, so it is already
included in every file.  I can cut&paste one of these text files for the license.

- Remove %%build section since it is not used
- Add LICENSE to %%doc
Comment 7 Christopher Stone 2006-06-29 03:26:09 EDT
Hey, I have put up another version here:

The main difference is that it puts the documentation in both the Fedora
standard location AND the pear standard location.

The result is a much cleaner looking spec file, tell me what you think.
Comment 8 Ville Skyttä 2006-06-29 04:53:11 EDT
I can't access the specfile URL at the moment to check, but note that especially
if this is not a noarch package, removing the %build section (even if it's
empty) is not a good idea, see bug 192422.  Even if it is noarch, I'd recommend
keeping it to avoid similar nasty surprises in the future.
Comment 9 Christopher Stone 2006-06-29 05:06:59 EDT
It's noarch
Comment 10 Christopher Stone 2006-09-03 21:05:52 EDT
Update SPEC file and SRPM to match latest template

SPEC: http://tkmame.retrogames.com/fedora-extras/php-pear-MDB2.spec
SRPM: http://tkmame.retrogames.com/fedora-extras/php-pear-MDB2-2.1.0-4.src.rpm
Comment 11 Remi Collet 2006-09-04 13:11:25 EDT
rpmlint is ok.
build in mock succed.

should not you upgrade to latest upstream version (2.2.2 stable) before release it ?

Requires php version is 4.3.2.

I think i could(will) do the review for you.
Comment 12 Christopher Stone 2006-09-04 16:51:37 EDT
Yes you are correct, I need to upgrade to 2.2.2

There are still a couple little things being ironed out on the template php
spec, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=198706

I'll do an upgrade in the next day or two with these changes for you to formally
review.  Then we can get php-pear-Log out.

Discussions on Fedora packaging mailing list led to the agreement that if the
package requires a php version of < 5.x then it's not needed because no
supported Fedora distributions use a php version older than this.

Comment 14 Remi Collet 2006-09-06 16:22:29 EDT
Can't assign this bug to myself for the moment.
Will do the review ASAP.
Comment 15 Remi Collet 2006-09-06 17:44:36 EDT
Build and install fine on FC5.
rpmlint is ok.
previous version build in mock (mock broken for me on this moment).
all MUST items are OK.
Great job done on this template.

I also though "including a BSD license would be nice :)" but i never find one
good copy.
