Review Request: gaim-rhythmbox - Rhythmbox plugin for GAIM
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Spec URL: http://hircus.org/fedora/gaim-rhythmbox/gaim-rhythmbox.spec
SRPM URL: http://hircus.org/fedora/gaim-rhythmbox/gaim-rhythmbox-2.0-0.1.beta3.src.rpm
The Gaim-Rhythmbox plugin will automatically update your Gaim user and
status info with the currently playing music in Rhythmbox.
If the artist and title are known, it will also attempt to create a
link to the song's lyrics by using Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky"
Gaim-Rhythmbox will replace %rb in your user info and status message
with the song information.
Note: this is a beta version, targeting the beta release of GAIM that comes with FC6. When approved it'll be FC6+ only.
+ Local build works fine.
+ No complaints for source rpm.
+ No complaints for Binary rpms.
+ No complaitns for install rpm.
+ Tarball in source rpm matches with upstream.
+ Package contains verbatin License.
+ Able to install and uninstall package localy.
Unfortunateley, I was not able to check out if the plugin itself work properly.
No IM account to test it with?
From my (limited) testing it works perfectly with AIM (both in status and info).
With Google Talk it works, but there is an open tag <rb> that's inserted before
the song name without a close tag.
Do let me know if you want to do a full review. Thanks!
You're missing a couple of build requirements:
BR: gtk2-devel dbus-glib-devel dbus-devel
I'll pick up the full review tonight if Jochen doesn't get to it earlier.
Jochen's no longer CC'ed, so I guess you get to review it.
I'm creating a mock tree right now to test it further - ldd
/usr/lib64/gaim/gaim-rhythmbox.so disturbingly claims that the .so file requires
anything from Xinerama to libxml2. Is that normal?
* rpmlint output clean
* Package named appropriately
* Source matches upstream:
* Builds in mock on FC6-i386, FC6-x86_64, FC7-i386, FC7-x86_64
* GPL license ok, license file included
* Spec file legible and in Am. English.
* Runs without crashing. Seems to work as expected with my AIM account.
* No missing BR:
* No locales
* Not relocatable
* Not a gui app; no need for a .desktop file
* No need to run ldconfig; .so files are application plugins that aren't
part of the system linker path.
* Directory ownership ok
* No duplicate %files
* No need for -doc or -devel subpackages
* Inconsistent use of the custom 'prever' macro. You only use it once
in %prep, but not at all in Source0 or Release. Either use it in all
3 places, or not at all.
* You could also include AUTHORS and README in %doc
* There's no need to split each sentence in %description into a separate
paragraph. It just adds unnecessary whitespace and doesn't make it any
easier to read.
* Send the configure patch upstream so that it can be included in the final
* I wouldn't worry about the shared library dependencies in the .so file.
If you run ldd on the gaim executable itself, you'll see an almost-identical
list of dependencies.
Not much here. Just fix the use of the prever macro and you're good to go.
Fixed. Sorry about %description, I copied it from upstream and did not think to
Changes look good.
Thanks! Actually, we missed a Require: on gaim. I'll put it in the next time
there's an update, since it should only get triggered if someone 'yum remove'
gaim and gaim-rhythmbox does not get removed as well.
The Requires: on gaim is picked up automatically:
$ rpm -q --requires gaim-rhythmbox | grep gaim
$ rpm -q --whatprovides 'libgaim.so.0()(64bit)'
I also verified this by running 'yum remove gaim' and saw that it would remove
Bizarre, that does not appear on my system when using mock to build the package.
When /not/ using mock the dependency appears properly.. I'll wait for the FE
result to comes out and reverify.
% rpm -q gaim-rhythmbox
% rpm -q --requires gaim-rhythmbox | grep gaim
