Description Adam Jackson 2007-05-24 13:40:44 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/ajackson/libpciaccess/libpciaccess.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/ajackson/libpciaccess/libpciaccess-0.8-0.20070524.src.rpm
libpciaccess is an OS-independent abstraction layer for accessing PCI devices.  The X server will eventually depend on this, as well as several other projects if I have my way.

No upstream release tarball anywhere yet, hence the git snapshot in the SRPM.
Comment 1 Julian Sikorski 2007-05-30 06:36:03 EDT
      - MUST: rpmlint is not silent on the devel package. Complains about no
documentation, but this can be ignored.
      - MUST: The spec file name matches the base package name
      - MUST: The package meets the Packaging Guidelines.
      - MUST: The package is licensed with an open-source compatible license and
meets other legal requirements as defined in the legal section of Packaging
      - MUST: The License field in the package spec file must matches the actual
license - MIT
      - MUST: License is included in %doc.
      - MUST: The spec file is written in American English.
      - MUST: The spec file for the package is legible.
      - MUST: Package builds and compiles on fc6/i386
      - MUST: Did not find compile failures
      - MUST: Buildrequires are fine
      - MUST: Locale does not apply
      - MUST: ldconfig is used properly
      - MUST: Non-relocatable
      - MUST: No dirs created
      - MUST: No duplicates in %files
      - MUST: Correct permissions
      - MUST: %clean section present
      - MUST: Consistent use of macros
      - MUST: Package contains code
      - MUST: No large documentation
      - MUST: No %doc runtime dependency
      - MUST: Header files are in a -devel package.
      - MUST: No static libs
      - MUST: pkgconfig requires correct
      - MUST: .so file in -devel
      - MUST: Correct NVR requires for devel
      - MUST: No libtool archives
      - MUST: Not a GUI app
      - MUST: No overlapping ownership
      - MUST: Correct buildroot cleanup
      - MUST: All filenames in rpm packages are valid UTF-8.


      - SHOULD: License is present as a separate file
      - SHOULD: Package builds in mock (fc6/i386)
      - SHOULD: Scriptlets are sane
      - SHOULD: NVR dependencies correct
      - SHOULD: pkgconfig files are in -devel

Things to correct:
- please change package release to 0.1.%{gitdate}git%{?dist}, as per [1]
- please read [2] to check how to state the source url precisely
- a minot thing: please align -devel requires with the lines above them

Other than that, the package looks fine to me.

Comment 2 Julian Sikorski 2007-05-30 09:18:28 EDT
Ah, one more thing. Please add AUTHORS, ChangeLog, NEWS and README to %doc.
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2007-05-30 23:56:31 EDT
(In reply to comment #2)
> Ah, one more thing. Please add AUTHORS, ChangeLog, NEWS and README to %doc.

NEWS and README are empty.  That seems unnecessary.  I'll happily add them once
they have content though.

New URLs:

I added the git checkout instructions as a script since they're ugly to emit
inline.  The only tricky part is the bit where it removes .git/ before
compressing, since that's just wasteful to include in srpm.
Comment 4 Julian Sikorski 2007-05-31 04:45:33 EDT
I am getting 404 error on the srpm. Otherwise, spec looks fine to me, just don't
forget to update the %changelog section. It is not a blocker, so
