Fedora Merge Review: mailcap

Comment 1 Gwyn Ciesla 2007-12-26 15:11:42 EST
mailcap.src:164: W: macro-in-%changelog variables
Macros are expanded in %changelog too, which can in unfortunate cases lead
to the package not building at all, or other subtle unexpected conditions that
affect the build.  Even when that doesn't happen, the expansion results in
possibly "rewriting history" on subsequent package revisions and generally
odd entries eg. in source rpms, which is rarely wanted.  Avoid use of macros
in %changelog altogether, or use two '%'s to escape them, like '%%foo'.

mailcap.src: W: no-url-tag
The URL tag is missing.

mailcap.noarch: W: no-url-tag
The URL tag is missing.

These are fixed by changing %variables in 164 to %%variables, and including a
URL tag.  Who is techincally upstream, Red Hat or Fedora?

Created attachment 290424 [details]
Patch to correct macro in changelog.
Comment 5 Miroslav Lichvar 2008-01-22 10:49:13 EST
mailcap currently doesn't have a home page. It will be moved to
hosted.fedoraproject.org once there is a place to upload tarballs.

In mailcap-2.1.26, the macro in changelog is escaped and there is a comment
added how to create the tarball.
Comment 6 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-01-22 12:28:42 EST
When will that be?  Because everything else about this checks out, except for
issues stemming from the lack of an "upstream", i.e. Source0 URL, URL tag,
source MD5 check, etc.  Those are the only blockers.
Comment 7 Miroslav Lichvar 2008-01-24 08:00:02 EST
The packaging guidelines don't seem to require URL tag and for the source tag
there is a comment explaining how to recreate the tarball from CVS, so I think
it's ok to approve the package if there are no other issues.
Comment 8 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-01-24 08:08:56 EST
Ok. works for me.
