OK * package is named appropriately
OK - match upstream tarball or project name
OK - try to match previous incarnations in other distributions/packagers for
OK - specfile should be %{name}.spec
OK - non-numeric characters should only be used in Release (ie. cvs or
OK - for non-numerics (pre-release, CVS snapshots, etc.), see
OK - if case sensitivity is requested by upstream or you feel it should be
   not just lowercase, do so; otherwise, use all lower case for the name
OK * is it legal for Fedora to distribute this?
OK - OSI-approved
OK - not a kernel module
OK - not shareware
OK - is it covered by patents?
OK - it *probably* shouldn't be an emulator
OK - no binary firmware
OK * license field matches the actual license.
OK * license is open source-compatible.
OK - use acronyms for licences where common
OK * specfile name matches %{name}
?? * verify source and patches (md5sum matches upstream, know what the patches do)
 - if upstream doesn't release source drops, put *clear* instructions on
   how to generate the the source drop; ie. 
  # svn export blah/tag blah
  # tar cjf blah-version-src.tar.bz2 blah
OK * skim the summary and description for typos, etc.
NO * correct buildroot
 - should be:
   %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

BuildRoot:      %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-buildroot

NO * if %{?dist} is used, it should be in that form (note the ? and %
NO * license text included in package and marked with %doc

included but not marked with %doc

OK * keep old changelog entries; use judgement when removing (too old?
OK * packages meets FHS (http://www.pathname.com/fhs/)
NO * rpmlint on <this package>.srpm gives no output
 - justify warnings if you think they shouldn't be there

$ rpmlint asm-1.5.3-2jpp.src.rpm

E: asm unknown-key GPG#c431416d
W: asm mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 9, tab: line 31)

OK * changelog should be in one of these formats:

OK * Summary tag should not end in a period
NA * if possible, replace PreReq with Requires(pre) and/or Requires(post)
OK * specfile is legible
 - this is largely subjective; use your judgement
NO * package successfully compiles and builds on at least x86

Cannot find build req  objectweb-anttask. Exiting.

?? * BuildRequires are proper
 - builds in mock will flush out problems here
 - the following packages don't need to be listed in BuildRequires:
   fedora-release (and/or redhat-release)
OK * summary should be a short and concise description of the package
OK * description expands upon summary (don't include installation
OK * make sure lines are <= 80 characters
OK * specfile written in American English
OK * make a -doc sub-package if necessary
 - see
NA * packages including libraries should exclude static libraries if possible
OK * don't use rpath
NA * config files should usually be marked with %config(noreplace)
NA * GUI apps should contain .desktop files
NA * should the package contain a -devel sub-package?
NO * use macros appropriately and consistently

ln -sf ${jar} ${jar/-%{version}/}; done)

OK * don't use %makeinstall
NA * locale data handling correct (find_lang)

NA * split Requires(pre,post) into two separate lines
OK * package should probably not be relocatable

Comment 2 Deepak Bhole 2007-02-15 01:07:05 UTC
New spec and srpm are here: 


buildroot fixed
source locations fixed
encoding warnings fixed
javadoc attributes fixed 
license file added and marked %doc

Comment 3 Deepak Bhole 2007-04-25 18:37:08 UTC
This package was originally an indirect dependency of maven2, but is no longer

Comment 4 Deepak Bhole 2007-04-25 19:26:16 UTC
On second thought, I think I will keep this open. Although it is non-critical,
it should really be added into Fedora at some point..

Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2007-06-21 20:41:02 UTC
If you want this added to Fedora, why not go ahead and make a CVS request?

(In reply to comment #6)
> *** Bug 252045 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

This package is still needed. Please file a CVS request and subsequently merge
with spec from bug 252045 if possible.

Comment 8 Deepak Bhole 2008-07-09 20:48:20 UTC
objectweb-asm is already in fedora... closing this as WONTFIX.
