see below - check for outstanding bugs on package.


1. NON BLOCKER: might include the COPYING file as a doc?

2. NON BLOCKER: The 29 version is out... perhaps upgrade to that from this pre22

3. rpmlint says:

wireless-tools.src: E: non-utf8-spec-file
wireless-tools.src: E: tag-not-utf8 %changelog

Suggest: run iconv on the spec file to make it UTF8?

wireless-tools.src:42: W: setup-not-quiet

Suggest: add -q to setup line?

wireless-tools.x86_64: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 1:29.0.2.pre22

Suggest: don't use dist tags in changelog entries.

wireless-tools-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation

Suggest: ignore

wireless-tools-devel.x86_64: W: symlink-should-be-relative /usr/lib64/libiw.so

Suggest: should use a relative link? Perhaps this is something wrong in the
makefile patch?

4. 14 outstanding bugs, none of which seem to be at all packageing related.

All these are very minor issues... very clean package.
Would you be willing to make the minor changes for rpmlint?
Or if you like I would be happy to do so for you...

Looks like this is actually a typo... it's missing the "-" (to delimit the
version from the release).

Updated to 29 and fixed the rest of the issues I believe.
Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2007-12-21 20:07:07 EST
Excellent. Thanks for your quick attention here... 

Everything looks fixed, with the exception of COPYING included as a doc. 
Might be good to do that sometime, but not a blocker... 

This package is APPROVED.
