Description Chris Weyl 2007-05-24 18:20:00 EDT
SRPM URL: http://home.comcast.net/~ckweyl/perl-DBI-Dumper-2.01-1.fc6.src.rpm
SPEC URL: http://home.comcast.net/~ckweyl/perl-DBI-Dumper.spec

Dumps data from a select statement into an output file. dbidumper tries
to mirror the functionality and behavior of sql*loader. The control
file syntax is similar, and DBI::Dumper utilizes a subset of the
sql*loader options.

Hi Chris,

This is my first review of a perl package, so I'd prefer if someone more experienced would have a look 
as well.

But anyway, here we go:

* RPM name is OK
* Source DBI-Dumper-2.01.tar.gz is the same as upstream
* Builds fine in mock
* rpmlint looks OK
* File list looks OK

- What is grammar.prd, and does it need to be in the docs?
Comment 2 Chris Weyl 2007-05-25 16:31:10 EDT
grammar.prd is the grammar Parse::RecDescent definition used by DBI::Dumper.  I
figured it might be useful to someone wanting to take a deeper look at things...
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-06-06 02:40:21 EDT
where can I find license text?
Comment 4 Chris Weyl 2007-06-06 10:55:43 EDT
See http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=27269
Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-07-24 06:43:35 EDT
any updates?
Comment 6 Chris Weyl 2007-07-24 12:39:53 EDT
(In reply to comment #5)
> any updates?

To what exactly? :)
Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-07-25 04:26:20 EDT
license inclusion in upstream tarball.
Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-09-27 11:20:00 EDT
Comment 9 Chris Weyl 2007-10-14 17:12:28 EDT
The rt bug comments from the author tell us what the license is, namely, under
the same terms as perl itself.  He has also committed to including a statement
to that effect in the next release of the distribution.

I've updated the rpm to include a "COPYING.fedora" with the information from and
a link to the licensing bug on rt.cpan.org.

Comment 10 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-10-26 07:45:41 EDT

added upstream clarification regarding license its ok now.

Done except for this.  Given that this template must be machine readable, what
do you mean?
Comment 14 Warren Togami 2007-10-29 13:08:12 EDT
Oops, that did actually work.
