Description Stewart Adam 2007-11-06 17:54:16 EST
Spec URL: http://www.diffingo.com/downloads/diffingo-repo/review/monit.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.diffingo.com/downloads/diffingo-repo/review/monit-4.10.1-1.fc8.src.rpm
Description: monit is a utility for managing and monitoring, processes, files, directories and devices on a UNIX system. Monit conducts automatic maintenance and repair and can execute meaningful causal actions in error situations.

rpmlint is silent on the SRPM, arch-specific shows this:
monit.x86_64: E: non-readable /etc/monit.conf 0600
** This is wanted, can it be added to the list of exceptions?
monit.x86_64: W: incoherent-subsys /etc/rc.d/init.d/monit $prog
** This is okay since $prog="monit"
Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-07 01:44:31 EST
mock build went fine.

rpmlint warnings looks ok in this case then.
monit.i386: E: non-readable /etc/monit.conf 0600
The file can't be read by everybody. If this is expected (for security
reasons), contact your rpmlint distributor to get it added to the list of
exceptions for your distro (or add it to your local configuration if you
installed rpmlint from the source tarball).

monit.i386: W: incoherent-subsys /etc/rc.d/init.d/monit $prog
The filename of your lock file in /var/lock/subsys/ is incoherent
with your actual init script name. For example, if your script name
is httpd, you have to use 'httpd' as the filename in your subsys directory.
It is also possible that rpmlint gets this wrong, especially if the init
script contains nontrivial shell variables and/or assignments.  These
cases usually manifest themselves when rpmlint reports that the subsys name
starts a with '$'; in these cases a warning instead of an error is reported
and you should check the script manually.
Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-07 01:59:37 EST
I saw included LICENSE file said this is GPLv3 licensed package.

Upstream is using openssl as ssl support. I think currently ssl support should
be enabled using nss. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=333741

Preserve timestamp
Comment 3 Stewart Adam 2007-11-07 20:21:41 EST
I don't have much experience with C or Makefiles... I managed to get Monit
recognize the --with-nss_compat option for switching for NSS, but make fails (I
think) because as NSS does not implement all the functions OpenSSL does. Can we
leave it as OpenSSL for now?

New Spec and SRPM for license and timestamp:

Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-07 21:25:30 EST
sure we can leave nss issue.
Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-12 07:08:50 EST
mock build failed.
I got
checking for SSL include directory... Not found

Couldn't find your SSL header files.

I think you changed BR from openssl-devel to nss-devel. 
Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-13 00:39:51 EST
Good to keep disttag simple as fc8 only and not fc8.1
Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-11-13 00:46:25 EST
