W: mailx summary-ended-with-dot The /bin/mail program for sending e-mail messages.
W: mailx no-url-tag
E: mailx hardcoded-library-path in %{_prefix}/lib
Check if hardcoded-library-path is really necessary for backward compatibility.
URL: Missing
Source: false, not sure what's upstream. Should it be?
Buildroot: replace with new
Release: too long format
Uselles to define macro datadir.
Defatter should have 4 parametres.

W: mailx summary-ended-with-dot The /bin/mail program for sending e-mail messages.
W: mailx no-url-tag
E: mailx only-non-binary-in-usr-lib -> should be in /usr/share

W: mailx-debuginfo no-url-tag

Not really...there was one regression introduced during the review: directory
/usr/share/mailx is no longer owned by mailx which should be the case. Ivana, 
please fix this for the next rebuild.
Comment 5 Ivana Varekova 2007-03-05 03:48:21 EST
Thanks for your notice, you are right - the directory is added in

There is still an error:

warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/mailx/mail.help
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/mailx/mail.tildehelp

More fundamentaly, the upstream selection seems a bit strange
to me. It seems to me that the cleanest thing to do would be to 
package directly
(using a cvs checkout, as explained here:

If you don't want the latest changes you can use an earlier
checkout, but I guess that all the patches in openbsd mail
cvs fix something. Seems like debian package the cvs, it seems
to me that it would be cleaner to do that than to use the 
(old) repackaged debian source.
