Comment 1 Jiri Popelka 2009-11-25 11:23:05 EST
formal review is here, see the notes below:

YES source files match upstream:
  183800762e266132218b204dfb428d29  ppp-2.4.4.tar.gz
YES package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
YES specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
YES dist tag is present.

YES build root is correct.
 BuildRoot in spec file has value: %{_tmppath}/%{name}-root
According to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#BuildRoot_tag
the BuildRoot value MUST contain at least %{name}, %{version} and %{release}.
I'm giving YES because the RPM in Fedora 10 and above defines a default buildroot
so in Fedora 10 and above it is no longer necessary to define a buildroot tag. 

YES license field matches the actual license.
YES license is open source-compatible.

NO License text included in package.
 I didn't find license text

NO latest version is being packaged.
 ppp-2.4.5.tar.gz has been released 11/17/2009

NO BuildRequires are proper.
 Build requirements are proper but they are defined in BuildPrereq (should be BuildRequires)

YES compiler flags are appropriate.
YES %clean is present.
YES package builds in mock (Rawhide/x86_64).
YES debuginfo package looks complete.

NO rpmlint is silent.

4 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 6 errors, 11 warnings.

YES final provides and requires look sane.
N/A %check is present and all tests pass.
YES no shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
YES owns the directories it creates.
YES doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
YES no duplicates in %files.

NO file permissions are appropriate.
 see rpmlint errors

YES no scriptlets present.
YES code, not content.
YES documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
YES %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
YES no headers.
YES no pkgconfig files.
YES no libtool .la droppings.
YES not a GUI app.

Sorry for the false positive about latest version not being packaged. There's ppp-2.4.5.tar.gz in devel branch and matches upstream.
Comment 3 Jiri Skala 2010-01-22 10:11:38 EST
- license texts are in sourcese. no copying 
- some rpmlint complains fixed
- permissions restricted due to security
- latest version updated
