Description Chris Weyl 2007-05-15 16:00:15 UTC
SRPM URL: http://home.comcast.net/~ckweyl/perl-Class-Data-Accessor-0.03-1.fc6.src.rpm
SPEC URL: http://home.comcast.net/~ckweyl/perl-Class-Data-Accessor.spec

Class::Data::Accessor is the marriage of Class::Accessor and
Class::Data::Inheritable into a single module. It is used for creating
accessors to class data that overridable in subclasses as well as in class

I note that 0.04000 (for whatever reason) came out a few days before you
submitted your review.  It looks like the build process is a bit different in
the new version, too.  I can go ahead and run a quick review on this version but
 I can also review an updated version if you like.

Note that CPAN says "GPL and Artistic" but the code itself says just "Artistic":
    This module is free software. It may be used, redistributed and/or
    modified under the terms of the Perl Artistic License (see

You might as well go ahead and add BR: perl(Test::Spelling) so you can run all
of the tests.  Or am I looking at the new version?  Yes, I'm in the wrong tree,
sorry.  The new version has more tests.

* source files match upstream:
    package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
X license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text not included upstream.
X latest version is being packaged.
? BuildRequires are proper (Test::Spelling is useful for the new vesion)
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   perl(Class::Data::Accessor) = 0.03
   perl-Class-Data-Accessor = 0.03-1.fc7

* %check is present and all tests pass:
   All tests successful.
   Files=3, Tests=21,  1 wallclock secs ( 0.12 cusr +  0.04 csys =  0.16 CPU)
* 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.

I think there's a conspiracy whereby CPAN authors wait until after I've packaged
a module before they release an update.  :)

Anyways, new packages follow.

Note that one of the author tests fails: pod_spelling.t, on "runtime".  Due to
this, I've left TEST_AUTHOR undefined...  I'm open to taking a different
approach, however.

Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2007-05-15 23:48:14 UTC
I suppose you could just cat "runtime" onto the list of stopwords at the end of
pod_spelling.t if your really wanted to run that test.  Or just delete that test
if you don't.

The license is still off, though.

Otherwise I think this package is fine; I'll trust you to fix the license and
leave it up to you to do what you wish with the tests.

APPROVED, just change to License: Artistic when you check in.

> The license is still off, though.

Nuts, I should know better than to try to do these things as I'm headed towards
a meeting.

In any case, the differing terms stem from Makefile.PL defining the license as
perl.  I've opened a RT bug and will update the license tag to just 'Artistic'


Comment 6 Chris Weyl 2007-05-16 23:32:16 UTC
License tag updated; imported and building.  Thanks for the review! :)
