Fedora Merge Review: wget

Initial Owner: karsten@redhat.com

Comment 1 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-02-04 12:19:48 UTC
Hi Karsten,

Review for release 12:
* RPM name is OK
* Source wget-1.10.2.tar.gz is the same as upstream
* Source wget-1.11-de.po is the same as upstream
* This is the latest version
* Builds fine in mock
* File list looks OK
* Config files of wget looks OK

Needs work:
* BuildRoot should be %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
  (wiki: PackagingGuidelines#BuildRoot)
* BuildRequires: perl should not be included
  (wiki: PackagingGuidelines#Exceptions)
* Missing SMP flags. If it doesn't build with it, please add a comment
  (wiki: PackagingGuidelines#parallelmake)
* The %makeinstall macro should not be used
  (wiki: PackagingGuidelines#MakeInstall)
* The package should contain the text of the license
  (wiki: Packaging/ReviewGuidelines)
  COPYING is included in the source, just add it to %doc

* Use Requires(post) and Requires(preun) instead of Prereq
* Honour %{optflags} when building
* Preserve timestamps when installing

Rpmlint is not silent:
Source RPM:
W: wget summary-ended-with-dot A utility for retrieving files using the HTTP or FTP protocols.
W: wget unversioned-explicit-provides webclient
W: wget prereq-use /sbin/install-info
W: wget macro-in-%changelog xx
W: wget mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 65, tab: line 48)

rpmlint of wget:
W: wget summary-ended-with-dot A utility for retrieving files using the HTTP or FTP protocols.

Comment 2 Robin Norwood 2007-02-04 17:38:31 UTC

o The unversioned-explicit-provides webclient is ok in this case - web
browsers (mozilla, lynx, etc.) have this as well.

o the prereq-use /sbin/install-info should be fixed as described here:
   - http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ScriptletSnippets#info

o I think:

%find_lang %name

Should be:

%find_lang %{name}

(consistent macro usage)

Comment 3 Karsten Hopp 2007-02-05 16:01:45 UTC
wget macro-in-%changelog xx is a false positive, usage of %%macroname is allowed.

The rest should be fixed in wget-1.10.2-13.fc7.

Thanks for the review !

Comment 4 Karsten Hopp 2007-02-05 16:06:20 UTC
hmm, not sure if this should be closed, I'll reopen:

Comment 5 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-02-05 16:37:27 UTC
You're right, I didn't approve it yet :-)
I'll have another look tonight.

Comment 6 Karsten Hopp 2007-02-05 16:46:09 UTC
I've checked the changelog again, there was %xx in there. rpmint took that as a
macro. fixed in -14

Comment 7 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-02-05 18:42:00 UTC
Hi Karsten,

Thanks for fixing everything.
This package is approved. Please leave the ticket assigned to yourself.

Comment 8 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-05 20:13:07 UTC
rpmlint took %xx as a macro because it *is* a macro syntactically and even if
it's not defined in clean buildroots, we don't know if someone has defined it

Comment 9 Karsten Hopp 2008-01-14 14:31:32 UTC
closing now as review is done
