Description Terje Røsten 2007-11-27 13:32:50 EST
Spec URL: http://terjeros.fedorapeople.org/tcpflow/tcpflow.spec
SRPM URL: http://terjeros.fedorapeople.org/tcpflow/tcpflow-0.21-1.fc.src.rpm

tcpflow is a program that captures data transmitted as part of TCP
connections (flows), and stores the data in a way that is convenient
for protocol analysis or debugging. A program like 'tcpdump' shows a
summary of packets seen on the wire, but usually doesn't store the
data that's actually being transmitted. In contrast, tcpflow
reconstructs the actual data streams and stores each flow in a
separate file for later analysis.

My build script was broken, updated srpm url:

SRPM: http://terjeros.fedorapeople.org/tcpflow/tcpflow-0.21-1.fc8.src.rpm

Small note to myself: update wishlist if packages gets included:

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2007-11-27 17:37:14 EST
I don't like the additions of features that haven't been 
already accepted by upstream. In that case, upstream doesn't
seems to be updating frequently, so it may be right.

* rpmlint is silent 
* follow guidelines
* free software, license included
* match upstream
45a5aef6f043312315b7f342afc4a9c5  ./tcpflow-0.21.tar.gz
* %file section right.


If you care, you can keep the man page timestamp by adding 
INSTALL='install -p' or similar on the make install line. 
Comment 3 Patrice Dumas 2007-11-27 17:39:02 EST
Seems to me that license is GPL+.
Comment 4 Terje Røsten 2007-11-27 17:52:41 EST
$ head -3 tcpflow-0.21/COPYING
                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
                       Version 2, June 1991

From tpcflow-0.21/src/main.c and others

 * This source code is under the GNU Public License (GPL).  See

So I guess, it's GPL+. Thanks, will fix.
