Fedora Merge Review: fetchmail

Initial Owner: mitr@redhat.com

Comment 1 Patrice Dumas 2008-09-28 21:12:34 UTC
During the build, there is:

krb5-config points to kerberosV under /usr
configure: WARNING: Kerberos IV support is obsolete. Use --with-kerberos5 if possible.
krb5-config points to kerberosIV under /usr

The obsolete should be versionned, I guess it is:
Obsoletes: fetchmailconf < 5.9.0-16

But it is not obvious that fetchmail obsoletes fetchmailconf, since it 
doesn't provides the functionality. However, if the fetchmailconf dependency disappeared, it may be indeed better to have it removed.

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2008-12-28 21:08:17 UTC
The fetchmail initscript for daemon functionality needs to get installed that 
users can use it more easily in the future. Maybe the initscript itself needs
some love before, possible (currently somewhere in contrib inside of tarball).

Adding current fetchmail maintainer on Cc, that he gets aware about this bug

in short:

Legend: + = PASSED, - = FAILED, 0 = Not Applicable

+ MUST[1]: rpmlint must be run on every package. The output should be posted in the review
+ MUST: package named according to the Package Naming Guidelines
+ MUST: The spec file name must match the base package %{name}
+ MUST: The package must meet the Packaging Guidelines .
+ MUST: The package licensed with a Fedora approved license and meets the Licensing Guidelines
+ MUST: The License field in the package spec file matches the actual license
+ MUST: If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the license(s) in its own file, then that file, containing the text of the license(s) for the package must be included in %doc.
+ MUST: The spec file must be written in American English.
+ MUST: The spec file for the package MUST be legible.
+ MUST: The sources used to build the package must match the upstream source, as provided in the spec URL. Reviewers should use md5sum for this task

+ MUST: The package successfully compiles and builds into binary rpms on at least one primary architecture
+ MUST: If the package does not successfully compile, build or work on an architecture, then those architectures should be listed in the spec in ExcludeArch
+ MUST: All build dependencies must be listed in BuildRequires, except for any that are listed in the exceptions section of the Packaging Guidelines
+ MUST: The spec file handles locales properly. This is done by using the %find_lang macro
0 MUST: Every binary RPM package (or subpackage) which stores shared library files (not just symlinks) in any of the dynamic linker's default paths, must call ldconfig in %post and %postun. [10]
+ MUST: Packages must NOT bundle copies of system libraries
+ MUST: If the package is designed to be relocatable, the packager must state this fact in the request for review, along with the rationalization for relocation of that specific package. Without this, use of Prefix: /usr is considered a blocker
+ MUST: Package must own all directories that it creates. If it does not create a directory that it uses, then it should require a package which does create that directory
+ MUST: Package must not list a file more than once in the spec file's %files listings
+ MUST: Permissions on files must be set properly. Every %files section must include a %defattr(...) line.
+ MUST: Each package must have a %clean section, which contains rm -rf %{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).
+ MUST: Each package must consistently use macros
+ MUST: The package must contain code, or permissable content
0 MUST: Large documentation files must go in a -doc subpackage
+ MUST: If a package includes something as %doc, it must not affect the runtime of the application
0 MUST: Header files must be in a -devel package
0 MUST: Static libraries must be in a -static package
0 MUST: Packages containing pkgconfig(.pc) files must 'Requires: pkgconfig'
0 MUST: If a package contains library files with a suffix (e.g. libfoo.so.1.1), then library files that end in .so (without suffix) must go in a -devel package
0 MUST: devel packages must require the base package using a fully versioned dependency: Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}
+ MUST: Packages must NOT contain any .la libtool archives, these must be removed in the spec if they are built
0 MUST: Packages containing GUI applications must include a %{name}.desktop file, and that file must be properly installed with desktop-file-install in the %install section
+ MUST: Packages must not own files or directories already owned by other packages
+ MUST: At the beginning of %install, each package MUST run rm -rf %{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT)
+ MUST: All filenames in rpm packages must be valid UTF-8

What's the status of fetchmailconf? When looking through koji builds it seems it was not built for a long time. Is Obsolete tag still required? Is fetchmailconf section still required? 


Looks good, but please explain fetchmailconf status


re comment #1:  --with-kerberos5 is already used 
re comment #2: I think missing fetchmail initscript does not make fetchmail unusable so this request for enhancement should go through separate bug (RFE).

fetchmailconf is obsolete since 2005, I removed it in fetchmail-6.3.21-3.fc18.
