Description Dave Malcolm 2007-08-31 17:09:38 EDT
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/dmalcolm/perl/perl-Class-CSV.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/dmalcolm/perl/perl-Class-CSV-1.03-1.src.rpm
This module can be used to create objects from CSV files, or to create CSV
files from objects. Text::CSV_XS is used for parsing and creating CSV file
lines, so any limitations in Text::CSV_XS will of course be inherant in
this module.

I'm seeking a sponsor.

Package builds fine, rpmlint is clean.

Actually, I'm a bit surprised that rpmlint doesn't complain about the duplicated
dependency for perl(Text::CSV_XS).  RPM finds one unversioned dependency itself,
while you specify a versioned one.  Frankly I'm not really sure how much of a
problem this is.  I know the same situation with Provides: is rather bad.

Honestly I'd just drop the versioned dependency  The oldest supported Fedora
release has always had the required version of Test::CSV_XS so there shouldn't
be any need for the versioned dependency.

Oddly, RPM doesn't automatically find any dependency on Class:Accessor, but it's
dependency detection is far from perfect.

* 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.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint is silent.
X final provides and requires include a duplicate dependency:
   perl(Class::CSV::Base) = 1.3
   perl-Class-CSV = 1.03-1.fc8
   perl(Class::Accessor) >= 0.18
X  perl(Text::CSV_XS)
X  perl(Text::CSV_XS) >= 0.23

* %check is present and the single included test passes:
   All tests successful.
   Files=1, Tests=1,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.02 cusr +  0.01 csys =  0.03 CPU)
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.

Ping?  This package is just about ready to go.  If you need help filtering that
dependency, just ask.
Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2007-11-08 10:51:47 EST
Sorry about the delay (got married/honeymoon)

Thanks for looking at this package, and for checking on the version of
Test::CSV_XS.  Based on that, I've dropped the explicit versioned requires, so
that we get an autogenerated one instead.

Revised specfile here: http://people.redhat.com/dmalcolm/perl/perl-Class-CSV.spec
and SRPM here: http://people.redhat.com/dmalcolm/perl/perl-Class-CSV-1.03-2.src.rpm

The updated package looks good to me.


I'll sponsor you; just request the access and I'll click the button.

I've created a Fedora account (dmalcolm), have reached "cla_done", and have
requested "cvsextras" and "fedorabugs".

Someone else must already have taken care of it because both memberships already
show as approved in the database.
