Description Peter Lemenkov 2007-08-04 17:50:52 EDT
Spec URL: http://peter.fedorapeople.org/fuse-python.spec
SRPM URL: http://peter.fedorapeople.org/fuse-python-0.2-1.fc7.src.rpm

Description: This package provides python bindings for FUSE. FUSE makes it possible to implement a filesystem in a userspace program.
Comment 1 Peter Lemenkov 2007-08-05 05:11:03 EDT
BTW what correct naming should be for this package - fuse-python (as in
upstream) or python-fuse?
Comment 2 Jan ONDREJ 2007-09-06 04:30:56 EDT
rpmlint says:
W: fuse-python invalid-license GPL
W: fuse-python mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 5, tab: line 6)

Please change license to GPLv2 or GPLv2+ .
Do not mix tabs and spaces in spec file.

I think python-fuse name is better, but fuse-python is not bad too.

%{python_sitearch}/fuseparts directory is not owned by packages. Please add an
%dir %{python_sitearch}/fuseparts into spec file.

Add these files to documentation:
  examples + it's content
  maybe README.historic too
  and maybe PKG-INFO too, which contains many interesting information
Comment 3 Jan ONDREJ 2007-09-06 06:40:34 EDT
There are more rpmlint errors on binary packages. They have been fixed in my new

* Thu Sep  6 2007 Jan ONDREJ (SAL) <ondrejj@salstar.sk> 0.2-2
- changed permissions for sitearch files to 644
- added fuseparts dir to package
- added egg-info directory with it's content
- license changed to LGPLv2, according to documentation and sources
- added provides for python-fuse (remove it on rename)


May be it needs to be renamed to python-fuse, but I don't know it it needs a new
Review Request ticket or not.
Comment 4 Till Maas 2007-09-06 08:37:15 EDT
You do not use the python_sitelib and pyver macros, therefore you should not
define them.

%{!?python_sitelib: %define python_sitelib %(%{__python} -c "from
distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib; print get_python_lib()")}
%{!?pyver: %define pyver %(%{__python} -c "import sys ; print sys.version[:3]")}
Comment 5 Jan ONDREJ 2007-09-09 10:56:58 EDT

* Sun Sep  9 2007 Jan ONDREJ (SAL) <ondrejj@salstar.sk> 0.2-3
- removed non used macros
- Changelog file converted to UTF-8

Comment 6 Adam Goode 2007-10-04 22:32:51 EDT

Can you follow the install procedure given here:

This will allow the egg information to work in Fedora 8 and beyond.
Comment 7 Peter Lemenkov 2007-10-05 02:06:01 EDT


I've got some things to discuss:

* I changed %files section according to the  Packaging/Python/Eggs from Jan's
variant when all files to package were explicitly named to more simplified form
%{python_sitearch}/* - which variant is preferrable? Personally I like Jan's
idea about explicit naming of all files but in the above example they use short
version: %{python_sitearch}/*

* What macro should be used? python_sitearch or python_sitelib? What are
differences between these macros and which is prefferable? 
Comment 8 Jan ONDREJ 2007-10-05 02:20:27 EDT
OK, shortest form is OK.

python_sitearch macro is for architecture dependent files. Your package contains
an *.so module for python, which is architecture dependent, this means, that it
is correctly packaged into python_sitearch.

Please use %{__python} macro.

BuildRequires:  python-devel can be dropped, because it is required by setuptools.
Tested build on fedora-devel and fedora7.
Comment 9 Peter Lemenkov 2007-10-05 02:39:29 EDT
Ok, cleaned a bit.
About macros - I decided not to use them at all.


Comment 10 Jan ONDREJ 2007-10-09 02:01:40 EDT
OK, package APPROVED.
