Review Request: perl-ccom - Perl module for context-sensitive phonetic string replacement
Last modified: 2008-02-07 16:00:10 EST
Spec URL: http://labs.linuxnetz.de/bugzilla/perl-ccom.spec
SRPM URL: http://labs.linuxnetz.de/bugzilla/perl-ccom-1.4.1-1.src.rpm
A perl module for context-sensitive phonetic string replacement to modify
strings according to predefined replacement rules in such a way that words
with the same spelling (e.g. "tail" and "tale") are converted to the same
string. This can, for example, be used to implement error-tolerant search
routines in address databases. It contains phonetic rules for German only,
but the software has been prepared for multi-language support.
Builds OK and rpmlint is silent.
The naming is a bit tough; this isn't a CPAN module and the tarball name
(phonet.tgz) doesn't match the module name, but it does unpack into a directory
which matches the module name. Odd. CPAN has no hits for either "phonet" or
"ccom". I'd tend to agree with you that perl-ccom is a better name than
perl-phonet; this wouldn't be the first time upstream has chosen a tarball name
that has nothing to do with the actual software.
There's a language oddity in the description; I assume it comes from a
mistranslation. The words "tail" and "tale" do not have the same spelling, but
they have the same pronunciation. I think everything is correct if you just
* source files match upstream:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines as far as I can tell.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* summary is OK.
? description needs a
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* compiler flags are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* debuginfo package looks complete.
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
perl(ccom) = 1.4
perl-ccom = 1.4.1-1.fc9
* %check is present and passes (not much of a test suite, but it runs):
* no shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
* 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 -doc subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no static libraries.
* no libtool .la files.
APPROVED, just fix up the description.
Jason, I'll have a look to that before importing it to CVS.

Cvsextras Commits: no
I might have asked before, but will again: Any reason for the cvsextras commits
no? This does mean that other maintainers can't help with this package if you
are away or unavailable.
I know, what this means. This package has nearly no upstream activity and I
made the worse experience, that packagers are more likely to break somebody's
package rather helping - sorry (add feature A, but A is know to break B or
