Fedora Merge Review: wget

Initial Owner: karsten@redhat.com
Comment 1 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-02-04 07:19:48 EST
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 12:38:31 EST

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 11:01:45 EST
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 11:06:20 EST
hmm, not sure if this should be closed, I'll reopen:
Comment 5 Ruben Kerkhof 2007-02-05 11:37:27 EST
You're right, I didn't approve it yet :-)
I'll have another look tonight.
Comment 6 Karsten Hopp 2007-02-05 11:46:09 EST
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 13:42:00 EST
Hi Karsten,

Thanks for fixing everything.
This package is approved. Please leave the ticket assigned to yourself.
Comment 8 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-05 15:13:07 EST
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 09:31:32 EST
closing now as review is done
