Fedora Merge Review: rsync

Initial Owner: fenlason@redhat.com

Comment 1 Ed Hill 2007-02-03 21:13:05 UTC
Hi there, here's a quick review:

 + source matches upstream
 + license is OK and correctly listed
 + spec looks clean/read-able

 - please remove the trailing '.' from Summary

 - please add "URL: http://rsync.samba.org/"

 - please change the Source: URL so it works with "spectool -g" 
   such as:
   Source: http://rsync.samba.org/ftp/rsync/rsync-%{version}.tar.gz

 - please consider adding %{?dist} to Release

 - please delete the Prefix: entry

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

 - rpmlint reports a few additional warnings (mostly repeats of above):

Comment 2 Matthias Saou 2007-08-31 14:54:40 UTC
Assigning to the actual reviewer, and changing to ASSIGNED instead of leaving
NEW, since according to the "fedora-review" flag, the formal review has started.

Patch to reduce rpmlint warnings, add URL.

I think this review is out of date and could be closed.  It appears to be Re:
rsync 2.6.9, which is out of date (F9 has 3.0.2).

I've attached a patch that could still go in to fix some rpmlint warnings and
implement other suggestions in this review.

Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2008-12-28 21:51:10 UTC
Looks like Simo Sorce <ssorce@redhat.com> is the current rsync maintainer; 
adding hereby to Cc.

Created attachment 327903 [details]
Patch for rsync.spec to make rpmlint silent

Simo, can you please apply this patch to rsync? It will solve the
most review issues so that we maybe can finish this soon. One
rpmlint "issue" seems to be left, that can be ignored, %config()
is not worse in %changelog, it is not expanded anyway.

Comment 6 Robert Scheck 2008-12-28 21:57:37 UTC
As Ed made no review noise for nearly two years, I'm now and hereby silently
overtaking the review. I think, the patch #327903 should bring us to the way
of succeeding the review hopefully very soon. Simo, please take action...

Comment 7 Simo Sorce 2009-01-01 18:12:49 UTC
Will do

Comment 8 Simo Sorce 2009-01-01 19:35:32 UTC
New f-10 and rawhide packages including this spec file patch have been built in koji today.

Comment 9 Robert Scheck 2009-01-11 20:59:52 UTC
Thank you, Simo.

Dumb question from my side: Is there a special reason for following
release tag usage:


Why don't have both the same release? Was there some special reason?

Comment 10 Simo Sorce 2009-01-12 14:10:14 UTC
No special reason, I did a mistake in rsync-3.0.5-0.fc10 so I had to bump up to re-tag and build :/

Comment 11 Robert Scheck 2009-01-12 21:10:26 UTC
Package looks from a packagers view good to me, so: APPROVED.

Comment 12 Jason Tibbitts 2009-01-12 21:51:29 UTC
I just wanted to point out that that release bump should have been to
instead of 

That way we don't actively screw anyone who wants to update to rawhide.

Comment 13 Robert Scheck 2009-01-12 21:53:12 UTC
Bumping Rawhide to -1.fc11 also solves it - as alternative. Personally,
I don't like the -X.fc10.Y style.

Comment 14 Jason Tibbitts 2009-01-12 22:04:57 UTC
You don't really have to like it, I suppose, but if you need to bump a non-rawhide branch and don't want to bump any later branches then you have no choice; it's the only versioning scheme that permits that.
