Description Paul Howarth 2006-09-20 10:03:08 UTC
Spec URL: http://www.city-fan.org/~paul/extras/python-zope-interface/python-zope-interface.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.city-fan.org/~paul/extras/python-zope-interface/python-zope-interface-3.0.1-5.src.rpm

This is a separate distribution of the zope.interface package used in Zope 3.

It is a dependency of the Twisted 2.x stack (see Bug #171543).

Comment 1 Daniel Benamy 2006-10-18 21:14:17 UTC
It looks like it's missing a build dep on gcc.

Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2006-10-19 07:03:17 UTC
Buildreqs of gcc don't need to be included; see:


Comment 3 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-10-29 13:47:00 UTC
* source files match upstream (can't compare MD5 since this package
  currently uses a CVS snapshot).
* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is correct.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  License text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* compiler flags are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
? can't check it in mock right now because my mock isn't behaving
  properly right now
* package installs properly
* rpmlint comes up empty
! %check is not present; There are some unit tests in
* no shared libraries, .so file is a Python C module
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets
* 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
* unversioned .so file is a Python C module, no -devel package necessary
* no pkgconfig files.
* no libtool .la droppings.

APPROVED, once the %check is added

Comment 4 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-10-30 20:42:40 UTC
I've gotten mock fixed so I'm able to confirm that it builds in FC6/i386

Comment 5 Paul Howarth 2006-10-31 17:04:01 UTC
Spec URL:

Release 6 adds %check section; hope I got that right.

I have tested that this version builds OK in mock for FC4..rawhide (i386 and
x86_64), though I'm only intending to request builds back to FC5.

Comment 6 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-10-31 17:27:17 UTC
Looks good, go ahead and import!

Comment 7 Paul Howarth 2006-11-02 12:53:52 UTC
Imported and built successfully for FC-5, FC-6, and development.
owners.list updated.

Thanks for the review.

Comment 8 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-02-17 16:19:41 UTC
Paul: I'm interested in EL-5 branch. Would you maintain it yourself or you
won't mind if I maintained it?

Comment 9 Paul Howarth 2008-02-17 18:26:21 UTC

Comment 10 Paul Howarth 2008-02-17 18:27:54 UTC
Lubomir: I'm OK to maintain this myself but I'll happily add you as
co-maintainer for both Fedora and EPEL if you want.

Comment 11 Kevin Fenzi 2008-02-18 17:18:55 UTC
