Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-02-28 09:59:16 EST
This package is completely rpmlint clean (w00t!)
Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-03-01 09:36:49 EST
build failed
Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-03-01 10:46:06 EST

SRPM URL: http://www.annexia.org/tmp/ocaml/ocaml-json-wheel-1.0.4-2.fc9.src.rpm

* Sat Mar  1 2008 Richard W.M. Jones <rjones@redhat.com> - 1.0.4-2
- Missing BR ocaml-pcre-devel.
- Missing BR pcre-devel.

I've built it in mock this time, so I'm fairly confident it should
build for you now.
Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-03-01 11:23:26 EST
Packaging guildelines said
*.cmo files are not normally included. There is however one exception -- if file
is needed for link (like gtkInit.cmo in lablgtk or std_exit.cmo in OCaml
itself), then it should be included.

*.o files are not normally included. There is however one exception -- if file
is needed for link (like gtkInit.cmx and gtkInit.o in lablgtk or std_exit.cmx
and std_exit.o in OCaml itself), then it should be included.

Is *.o belongs to main package or -devel if allowed because I see description
written for *.o under -devel sub-package in ocaml guidelines.

Also, I didn't get following 

# Stop it from trying to install jsoncat into /usr/bin ...
mv jsoncat jsoncat.ignore
make install

# ... and then install jsoncat by hand.
mv jsoncat.ignore jsoncat
install -m 0755 jsoncat $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_bindir}
Comment 5 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-03-05 06:52:27 EST
The *.cmo and *.o files are wrong.  I don't know why upstream is
distributing them, but they aren't of any use so I removed them.

The 'make install' rule tries to install jsoncat binary in /usr/bin.
In the latest version (below) I've come up with a better way to get
it to go in the build root instead.

SRPM URL: http://www.annexia.org/tmp/ocaml/ocaml-json-wheel-1.0.4-3.fc9.src.rpm

* Wed Mar  5 2008 Richard W.M. Jones <rjones@redhat.com> - 1.0.4-3
- Don't distribute the *.cmo and *.o files.
- Better way to install jsoncat in the right directory.

Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-03-05 07:21:03 EST
I see like other new ocaml package SPECs this still contains
ExcludeArch:    ppc64
do you want to remove it?
Comment 8 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-03-05 07:44:45 EST
I don't anticipate any of these packages having a problem building on
ppc64.  They just have the ExcludeArch tag because they predate David
Woodhouse fixing OCaml on ppc64 last weekend.

Here's a package with that tag removed:

Spec URL: http://www.annexia.org/tmp/ocaml/ocaml-json-wheel.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.annexia.org/tmp/ocaml/ocaml-json-wheel-1.0.4-4.fc9.src.rpm

* Wed Mar  5 2008 Richard W.M. Jones <rjones@redhat.com> - 1.0.4-4
- Remove ExcludeArch ppc64.

and a Koji build of the same:
