Description Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2007-10-22 21:24:01 EDT
Spec URL:
Description: Firmware for hardware based on Conexant's CX23415/CX23416 codec chip

There was a preview review #250971 - but it was CLOSED to INSUFFICIENT_DATA   

In my view there is no need to requires anything, but instead, the ivtv-utils (or xorg-x11-drv-ivtv) need to requires the ivtv-firmware.
(need to be confirmed by testers).

You don't seem to have an srpm.  I built one from the spec and everything looks
good except for one issue:

You cannot package the two .txt files as %doc; the license requires that they be
included and installed in the same directory as the firmware itself.  This means
that they must be included even in a --nodocs installation.

The only problem with keeping them in /lib/firmware is that they have somewhat
generic names.  I don't think anything prohibits you from renaming the license
files; maybe you could prefix them with "ivtv-" so there would be slightly less

Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2007-10-23 01:13:48 EDT
Hmm, something's still not right.  Ah:

install -pm 0644 license-end-user.txt \
install -pm 0644 license-end-user.txt \

You install the same file twice; I guess one of those is supposed to install
license-oemihvisv.txt instead.  I'll just progress with the review after
changing one of those.

You do end up including the license files twice.  I guess this is OK, as now
this package mirrors almost exactly what the ipw2200 package does.

Is it expected that the firmware will one day acquire a version?  If not, then
there's no reason why you couldn't just use the date as the version instead of
using 0 as the version and encoding the date in the release.  I'll leave that up
to you; you can decide to change it in the future if you want.

* 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.
* build root is OK.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is acceptable for firmware.
* license text included in package in the required location.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper (none)
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane (no runtime dependencies)
* owns the directory it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets present.
* acceptable content (firmware)
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.

APPROVED, provided you fix the bit with the missing license file.

cvs done.
Comment 6 Axel Thimm 2007-10-24 13:54:15 EDT
Please also see bug #250970 for a competing review. I don't think it is correct
for a reviewer to close a submitter's bug who filed in to the /wiki/Vacation
page. and push the package as his own. Especially if the items he didn't approve
were rather minor or even false leading to a worse package.

Please undo this review or escalate this to the appropriate instance whatever
that is, fesco or else.
Comment 7 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2007-10-24 14:03:34 EDT
No need to raise to fesco with this...
You just need to produce rational and that will be fine...
