Are you able to access the upstream web site?  All I get is an empty page in
Firefox and an "Error reading from socket" error from links.

I can't fetch the upstream source, either; sourceforge either redirects me
endlessme or eventually sends me to a nonexistent URL.
Comment 2 Michael Stahnke 2007-06-30 17:52:36 EDT
According to Drew (drewish.com frontpage) he *just* reorganized his entire site.  
The URL for the project is now: http://drewish.com/tags/phlickr
And the URL for the source, 

According to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/SourceUrl I am
supposed to use 
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/%{name}/%{name}-%{version}.tar.gz.  I don't
think there is a macro for tolower%{name} in the spec file. It appears that
SourceForge does not honor uppercase project names in their directory structure. 
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/phlickr/Phlickr-0.2.7.tgz this works.

Well, you don't have to use that precise download URL if it doesn't work for
you; it's just a suggestion.

Generally it's best to leave the package name out of the summary; otherwise you
get things like the subject of this ticket: "PackageName - PackageName is a...".

Also, there's no reason to provide a copy of the license if the upstream source
doesn't include it.

I tried to run the included test suite, but honestly I have no idea how to do
it.  I tried following the instructions on the upstream web site but I get no

The above nonwithstanding, I don't see any blockers.

* source files match upstream:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* summary is OK.
* description is OK.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text not included upstream.
* license text included in package (supplied in the srpm).
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   php-pear(Phlickr) = 0.2.7
   php-pear-Phlickr = 0.2.7-2.fc8
* %check is not present.  There's a test suite, but I have no idea how to 
   actually run it.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* scriptlets are OK (pear module installation).
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.

I can change the description to not reference the package name.  I will also
contact the author about running the test suite.    

I included the license, because I thought it was the "RIGHT THING" to do.  Also,
I had no other docs, and rpmlint complains about that IIRC.
