Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2007-02-03 18:47:28 EST
rpmlint is silent, so there's just the buildroot.

* source files match upstream:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
X build root should be:
  %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
* license field matches the actual license.
  The file LZW.INFO indicates that teh code is in the compression is in the
  public domain; I'm making the assumption that this covers the entire program.
  This package has been around for so long that I doubt that's incorrect.
* license is open source-compatible.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper (It's not necessary for gcc to be there.)
* compiler flags are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* %makeinstall is not used.
* package builds in mock.
* debuginfo package looks complete.
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane
   ncompress = 4.2.4-48.fc7
* %check is not present; no test suite upstream.
* no shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no libtool .la droppings.

After some discussion with oher folks, I've realized that there's little point
in blocking just because of the buildroot; it's more than reasonable to save a
round-trip through the review process and just ask you to fix it when you check in.

So, assuming you agree, we're good to go.

* /usr/bin => %{_bindir}

* "install -p ..." to preserve time-stamps of any files which are
not rebuild

The new version is in the repo now, so I'll close this ticket.
