Description Alex Lancaster 2007-03-24 13:06:17 UTC
Spec URL: http://allele5.biol.berkeley.edu/~alex/fedora/perl-Math-Derivative.spec
SRPM URL:  http://allele5.biol.berkeley.edu/~alex/fedora/perl-Math-Derivative-0.01-1.src.rpm
This Perl package exports functions for performing numerical first
(Derivative1) and second Derivative2) order differentiation on vectors of
data. They both take references to two arrays containing the x and y
ordinates of the data and return an array of the 1st or 2nd derivative at
the given x ordinates. Derivative2 may optionally be given values to use
for the first dervivative at the start and end points of the data -
otherwise 'natural' values are used.

Comment 1 Chris Weyl 2007-03-26 00:48:56 UTC
Note, module is only licensed via a note in README.  You may want to bug
upstream about adding actual "this is licensed under..." text into
Derivitave.pm itself.

Also, this package needs a buildrequires on perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker), what
with the perl/perl-devel split for F7.  Add this and I'll approve the package.

+ source files match upstream:
359b1b4b545c03f4147594fc64420a2  Math-Derivative-0.01.tar.gz
a359b1b4b545c03f4147594fc64420a2  ../Math-Derivative-0.01.tar.gz
+ package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
+ specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
+ dist tag is present.
+ build root is correct.
+ license field matches the actual license.
+ license is open source-compatible.  License text not included upstream.
+ latest version is being packaged.
X BuildRequires are proper.
+ compiler flags are appropriate.
+ %clean is present.
+package installs properly
+noarch package, no debuginfo subpackage
+ rpmlint is silent.
+ final provides and requires are sane:
 ** perl-Math-Derivative-0.01-1.fc6.noarch.rpm
 == rpmlint
 == provides
 perl-Math-Derivative = 0.01-1.fc6
 == requires
O %check is present -- no tests defined
 No tests defined for Math::Derivative extension.
+ no shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
+ owns the directories it creates.
+ doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
+ no duplicates in %files.
+ file permissions are appropriate.
+ no scriptlets present.
+ code, not content.
+ documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
+ %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
+ no headers.
+ no pkgconfig files.
+ no libtool .la droppings.
+ not a GUI app.
