Description Paul P Komkoff Jr 2007-10-19 12:26:23 EDT
I'm going to replace old conntrack package with this one.

Spec URL: http://palevo.sgu.ru/mockbuild/7/SPECS/conntrack-tools.spec
SRPM URL: http://palevo.sgu.ru/mockbuild/7/SRPMS/conntrack-tools-0.9.5-1.fc7.src.rpm
The conntrack-tools package contains two programs:

  - conntrack:  the command line interface to interact with the connection
                tracking system.

  - conntrackd: the connection tracking userspace daemon that can be used to
                deploy highly available GNU/Linux firewalls and collect
                statistics of the firewall use.

conntrack  is  used to search, list, inspect and maintain the netfilter
connection tracking subsystem of the Linux kernel.
Using conntrack , you can dump a list of all (or a filtered selection  of)
currently  tracked  connections, delete connections from the state table,
and even add new ones.
In  addition,  you  can  also  monitor connection tracking events, e.g.
show an event message (one line) per newly established connection.
Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-10-20 02:11:56 EDT
rpmlint messages on RPM
conntrack-tools.i386: W: spurious-executable-perm
conntrack-tools.i386: W: spurious-executable-perm
conntrack-tools.i386: W: spurious-executable-perm
conntrack-tools.i386: W: spurious-executable-perm
==>The file is installed with executable permissions, but was identified as one
that probably should not be executable.  Verify if the executable bits are
desired, and remove if not.

conntrack-tools.i386: W: invalid-license GPL
==> I think license for this package should be GPLv2
conntrack-tools.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 1, tab: line 9)
==>The specfile mixes use of spaces and tabs for indentation, which is a
cosmetic annoyance.  Use either spaces or tabs for indentation, not both.

will you update package solving above messages?

Comment 2 Paul P Komkoff Jr 2007-10-20 17:45:04 EDT
conntrack-tools-0.9.5-2 at the same place
but I don't really want to "fix" the 1st set of warnings, because they are,
well, executable script examples, which I put in %doc by intention.

Of course, if you insist, I can chmod 644 them...
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-10-22 22:50:13 EDT
I think good to chmod 644 them. I saw some of packages installs them with mode
644 and very few installs them with 755.

  you may like to use following command on final SPEC written to avoid
mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs message
==>"sed -i -e 's|\t|  |g' conntrack-tools.spec"
Comment 4 Paul P Komkoff Jr 2007-10-23 08:43:30 EDT
Done. conntrack-tools-...-3 at the same place.
Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-10-23 11:03:46 EDT
I think it will be good if you provide SPEC as well as SRPM links each time you
update package. Otherwise it needs to open download place, browse website and
then search for updated SRPM and then download SRPM instead of having direct
single click download for updated SRPM.
Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-10-23 11:29:15 EDT
Just found one missing thing that this package used obsoletes and provides but
its not according to Naming guidelines.

It should be
Provides:       conntrack = %{version}-%{release}
Obsoletes:      conntrack < 1.0-1

Comment 8 Paul P Komkoff Jr 2007-10-23 11:43:23 EDT
What the point? I'm obsoleting conntrack package (which was at
1.0-0.betasomething), but why I should provide conntrack = 0.9.5-3 (which is
smaller than version I am obsoleting)
