Description Jima 2006-09-29 22:50:13 EDT
Spec URL: http://beer.tclug.org/fedora-extras/miau/miau.spec
SRPM URL: http://beer.tclug.org/fedora-extras/miau/miau-0.6.2-2.src.rpm
miau is a smart and versatile IRC-bouncing tool for *NIX. The difference
between miau and other bouncers is that miau will go on IRC as soon as
it is launched, guarding or attempting to get your nick. Control over
the session can be taken as with other bouncers, by simply connecting to
miau (and providing a password) like you would connect to a normal IRC
server. On disconnect, miau is able to stay in the channels and to
reintroduce them to your client on your next connect. Other handy
features are message logging, flood protection, and DCC bouncing.

First review of miau:

1. From http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines :
* Scriptlets requirements
  - This package should require /sbin/install-info as
    Requires(post), Requires(preun).

  - The scriplets of post, postun is incollect.
    1. use || :
    2. don't call "/sbin/install-info --delete" when
    See the section "Texinfo" of:

2. From http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ReviewGuidelines :
* The sources used to build the package must....
  Well, I cannot directly access to 
  http://dl.sf.net/%{name}/%{name}-%{version}.tar.bz2 .
  I prefer like:

3. Other things I have noticed:
* I think "INSTALL" is not needed for document files.
  This is required for installing this.

Sorry, I meant:
Comment 3 Jima 2006-10-02 13:42:59 EDT
1. You're correct; I've made the recommended changes.

2. This is a widely disputed point.  I'm in the dl.sf.net camp, personally.  I
have qualms with changing it to point at a specific mirror; I can attest that
the U of M mirror has had historical issues, as has Ibiblio.  (Those are the two
I typically use.)  My general belief is that dl.sf.net *usually* points at a
valid mirror, and that any reviewer ought to be able to puzzle out how to get a
tarball if it isn't (as you clearly were).

My informal poll in #fedora-extras found most of the respondants to prefer
dl.sf.net, although there was an undertone that both methods pretty well suck
(which I also agree with).

3. Also a fair point.  I stand corrected.

Updated spec/SRPM can be found at:

Well, I prefer to specify URL, however, this is not a blocker.

Other things are correctly fixed.

  This package (miau) is APPROVED by me.

Thanks for the fast review!

Imported into CVS, added to owners.list, built for devel, and requested FC-5
branch.  All systems go.

Closing with NEXTRELEASE; have a nice day!
