Description Mihai Ibanescu 2006-08-10 10:35:26 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/misa/rpms/deltarpm/deltarpm.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/misa/rpms/deltarpm/deltarpm-3.3-2.src.rpm
Description: Create deltas between rpms.

A deltarpm contains the difference between an old
and a new version of a rpm, which makes it possible
to recreate the new rpm from the deltarpm and the old
one. You don't have to have a copy of the old rpm,
deltarpms can also work with installed rpms.

+ Tar ball matched with upstream.
+ Local Build works fine.
+ Local install works fine.
+ Local uninstall works fine.
+ License is OK.
+ Mock build works fine.

- BuildRoot should be %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
- Rpmlint on the source rpm complaints:
  W: deltarpm non-standard-group Applications/Utilitie  s
  W: deltarpm setup-not-quiet
- Rpmlint complaints on binary package:
  W: deltarpm non-standard-group Applications/Utilities

Do you have any good suggestion on a good group for this to live in? I can see
it in:

Applications/Archiving (well, maybe not, rpms are not generally for archives)
Comment 3 Daniel Riek 2006-08-17 09:22:37 EDT
Even non-standard yum plugins are in System Environment/Base, so I guess this
goes there as well.

Suggested changes were incorporated, please have a look (spec file path is the

You don't need to specify gcc as a BR.

So, If you may remove this BR you are APPROVE.
Comment 6 Mihai Ibanescu 2006-08-17 16:34:25 EDT
Removed, in deltarpm 3.3-4 (I didn't like 3.3-3 anyway)
