Fedora Merge Review: mtools

Initial Owner: atkac@redhat.com

Comment 1 Ed Hill 2007-02-03 20:22:16 UTC
Hi there, here's a quick review:

 + source matches upstream
 + license is OK and correctly included (GPL)
 + specfile is legible and looks good
 + dir ownership and permissions look good
 + has %clean and "rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT"
 + pot/preun scriptlets look good
 + dir ownership and perms OK

 - please see the rpmlint output at:
   which lists a few items that need attention

 - please use the preferred BuildRoot:
%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

Ed, are you going to review mtools, please?

Comment 8 Cole Robinson 2015-02-11 20:38:02 UTC
Mass reassigning all merge reviews to their component. For more details, see this FESCO ticket:


If you don't know what merge reviews are about, please see:


How to handle this bug is left to the discretion of the package maintainer.

Comment 9 Ondrej Oprala 2015-02-12 08:18:38 UTC
Since Ed's review +'s still hold true and rpmlint's pretty happy apart from 3 bogus dates, I consider this issue resolved.

Comment 10 Parag AN(पराग) 2015-02-12 09:25:58 UTC
Few additional things you can improve in spec like we have following tags now optional and can be removed safely

1) Group:
2) Buildroot:
3) in %install no need of
4) %clean section
5) %defattr(-,root,root)

Then we have macro for /etc which is %{_sysconfdir}

Every patch used should provide information in comment above to that patch line like why patch is needed and if it is upstream or not?

Please look http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Why_the_.25makeinstall_macro_should_not_be_used and see if you can avoid using %makeinstall
