Description Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-12-07 20:25:22 UTC
Spec URL: http://repo.ocjtech.us/misc/fedora/6/SRPMS/python-yadis-1.0.1-1.fc6.spec
SRPM URL: http://repo.ocjtech.us/misc/fedora/6/SRPMS/python-yadis-1.0.1-1.fc6.src.rpm

This code implements relying party support for the Yadis[1] service
discovery protocol.  The protocol was developed for use by
decentralized URL-based identity systems, but is useful for
advertising services provided by or on behalf of a certain URL.

To learn more about Yadis, see http://www.openidenabled.com/yadis

The JanRain Python OpenID library[2] uses this library for discovery
of OpenID service endpoints.  See that library for an example of
library usage.

This is an unofficial review as I'm not sponsored.

rpmlint is silent on srpm.

Package mock-builds for FC6

A license file is not included with the distribution - please query upstream for

All "Must" requirements met.

Nice packaging.  This ends my review.

Comment 2 John Mahowald 2007-01-06 07:19:52 UTC
- Links broken in doc/apache-config.html, linked examples were moved to

Would be nice:
- I see version 1.1.0 at http://www.openidenabled.com/yadis/libraries/python

Comment 4 John Mahowald 2007-01-13 20:35:55 UTC
Packaging note from the README:
This is the last release of python-yadis as an independently

python-openid library.
