Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2009-07-17 12:42:49 EDT
I just saw this ticket, which nobody has looked at because you set the fedora-review flag when you submitted it so it never appeared in the review queue.

If you still want to submit this package, please clear the fedora-review tag and bring the package up to today's packaging guidelines.  And you should probably make the package noarch as well, because I can't see any reason for it to be arch-specific.

Comment 3 Fabian Affolter 2009-08-03 07:07:38 EDT
Some comment after a quick look at your spec file.

- Don't mix '$RPM_BUILD_ROOT' and '%{buildroot}'
- README is missing in %doc
- Is there any note about the license in the source?
Comment 4 Fabian Affolter 2009-09-18 03:25:37 EDT
Mike, do you still want to proceed with this review request?
Comment 5 W. Michael Petullo 2009-09-18 20:00:03 EDT
This project's license is documented as LGPL at http://sourceforge.net/projects/webunit/develop/.

Comment 6 Fabian Affolter 2009-12-23 06:52:50 EST
- Do you really need 'python_sitearch'?  I guess that this is a left-over from the template.
- Can you please preserve the timestamps in the install section?

The biggest issue is still the missing license statement.
Comment 7 Fabian Affolter 2009-12-23 08:12:43 EST
Upstream closed the bug [1] about the license as 'wont fix'.

- Remove python_sitearch.
- Preserve timestaps when using install.
Comment 9 Steve Traylen 2010-03-05 15:31:20 EST
I can't see any license statement anywhere? How do you derive that its

also there some rpmlint errors that can definitely be fixed:

webunit.spec:44: W: macro-in-%changelog %{buildroot}
webunit.src:44: W: macro-in-%changelog %{buildroot}
webunit.noarch: E: non-executable-script /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/httpsession.py 0644L /usr/bin/env
2 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 1 errors, 2 warnings.

Spec URL: http://www.flyn.org/SRPMS/webunit.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.flyn.org/SRPMS/webunit-0.4-5.fc12.src.rpm

- Fix macro in changelog
- Chmod httpsession.py 755

As stated in comment #5, the license is noted at the project's SourceForge site.
Comment 11 Steve Traylen 2010-03-21 11:33:25 EDT
Copy and paste messages you sent to and from upstream about the license
as comments into the .spec file.

Then the licensing is clear where it comes from.

Comment 13 Thomas Spura 2010-04-25 20:24:09 EDT
To be honest:

Is it worth to get a package into fedora, which is not actively maintained?
(Tarball 8 years old, last commit in svn 4 years old)
Or do you want to become the new maintainer and further improve/develop this?

It looks like this could work on python3 (just looked at the source, untested), maybe you could do a subpackage as described in https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Python

Ping, I'll close this soon, when no response by the reporter...
