Comment 1 Daniel Novotny 2009-12-16 12:44:53 UTC
hello Dan, how does it look here from your point of view?

Comment 2 Dan Horák 2009-12-18 10:30:19 UTC
formal review is here, see the notes below:

OK	source files match upstream:
	    70b4423a1f4d690976d57ded91ec3e9a71c6c0a3  egenix-mx-base-3.1.1.tar.gz
OK*	package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
OK	specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
OK	dist tag is present.
OK	license field matches the actual license.
OK	license is open source-compatible. License text included in package.
BAD	latest version is being packaged.
Ok	BuildRequires are proper.
OK	compiler flags are appropriate.
OK	%clean is present.
OK	package builds in mock (Rawhide/x86_64).
OK	debuginfo package looks complete.
BAD	rpmlint is silent.
BAD	final provides and requires look sane.
N/A	%check is present and all tests pass.
OK	no shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
OK	owns the directories it creates.
OK	doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
OK	no duplicates in %files.
BAD	file permissions are appropriate.
OK	no scriptlets present.
OK	code, not content.

OK	%docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
OK	headers in devel subpackage
OK	no pkgconfig files.
OK	no libtool .la droppings.
OK	not a GUI app.

- this package is a collection of python modules and should follow the guideline for naming python modules (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:NamingGuidelines#Addon_Packages_.28python_modules.29), because this a merge review it will be sufficient to add a Provides that will match the guideline (python-mx = %{version}-%{release})
- version 3.1.2 was released

- rpmlint complains a bit
mx.x86_64: W: self-obsoletion mx2 <= 3.1.1-5.fc13 obsoletes mx2 = 3.1.1-5.fc13
    => if the reason for these is an upgrade path from an earlier version present in F<=10, it could be dropped
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/Stack/mxStack/mxStack.so 0775
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/BeeBase/mxBeeBase/mxBeeBase.so 0775
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/UID/mxUID/mxUID.so 0775
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/URL/mxURL/mxURL.so 0775
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/Tools/mxTools/mxTools.so 0775
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/Proxy/mxProxy/mxProxy.so 0775
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/TextTools/mxTextTools/mxTextTools.so 0775
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/Queue/mxQueue/mxQueue.so 0775
mx.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/mx/DateTime/mxDateTime/mxDateTime.so 0775
    => chmod will fix them, AFAIK it's caused by the python dist/setup-tools
mx-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation
    => no problem, but you can check if some of the existing docs could be moved here
- the documentation contains a number of PDF files making 90% of the total package size and 65% of installed size and thus deserves a docs subpackage

Comment 3 Brian Lane 2010-08-24 18:35:46 UTC

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

Comment 8 Jan Kurik 2015-07-15 15:24:52 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 10:20:23 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 10 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 11:58:49 UTC
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
