Description Eric Sandeen 2008-02-13 11:00:41 EST
Spec URL: http://sandeen.fedorapeople.org/fio/fio.spec
SRPM URL: http://sandeen.fedorapeople.org/fio/fio-1.18-1.fc8.src.rpm
fio is an I/O tool that will spawn a number of threads or processes doing
a particular type of io action as specified by the user.  fio takes a
number of global parameters, each inherited by the thread unless
otherwise parameters given to them overriding that setting is given.
The typical use of fio is to write a job file matching the io load
one wants to simulate.

Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-02-13 20:52:07 EST
1)Can you add some lines in comments on "Creation of tarball from git"?

2) License is GPLv2+

3)Use install command as
make install prefix=%{_prefix} mandir=%{_mandir} DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT
INSTALL="install -p"
==> this will take care of usage of macros and timestamp of man page.

4) explicit writing of attr for man page is not needed. make it simple as
Comment 2 Eric Sandeen 2008-02-13 21:18:53 EST
The tarball was not in fact created from git, it is, as near as I can tell, a
released tarball from the URL from the Source0: line.

re: license, when I look at fio.c, it says:

 * The license below covers all files distributed with fio unless otherwise
 * noted in the file itself.
 *  This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
 *  it under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2 as
 *  published by the Free Software Foundation.

Should both GPLv2 and GPLv2+ be listed?

re: the other things; I'll fix those up, someday I'll be good at this :)

new spec & src.rpm, except no license change (yet) is up...

Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2008-02-13 21:19:25 EST
Oh I forgot to add; fio itself appears to be GPLv2, but it incorporates some
files which are listed as GPLv2+
Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-02-13 22:34:14 EST
you should bump release and add changelog instead to create same SRPM again and
again that may confuse reviewer.
License is Ok GPLv2.
