Comment 1 Remi Collet 2008-08-16 05:50:25 EDT
Please fix the %files
Comment 2 Lev Shamardin 2008-11-22 07:16:01 EST
I'm not a sponsor, so this is not a formal review, but I hope this can
speed things up a bit.

- FAILED: rpmlint complaints:

php-pear-HTML-AJAX.spec: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 4, tab: line 50)

You shoud use spaces for indentation. Just expand all tabs.

php-pear-HTML-AJAX.noarch: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/php-pear-HTML-AJAX-0.5.2/examples/proxy_usage_server.php
php-pear-HTML-AJAX.noarch: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/php-pear-HTML-AJAX-0.5.2/examples/support/test.class.php

I see that you've tried to fix this issue in the %install script, but
you are iconv'ing wrong files. You should iconv files in docdir/%{pear_name}/examples/

- PASSED: The package is named according to the Package Naming
- PASSED: Spec file name is ok.
- FAILED: The package dos not meet the Packaging Guidelines for PHP.

Please check with https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/PHP

A PEAR package MUST have:

BuildRequires: php-pear(PEAR)
Requires: php-pear(PEAR)
Requires(post): %{__pear}
Requires(postun): %{__pear}
Provides:     php-pear(foo) = %{version}

post-scriptlets are fine.

- PASSED: The license is fedora-compatible.
- FAILED: The license specified on the project homepage is LGPL, the
  license specified in spec file is LGPLv3.
- PASSED: The spec file is written in American English in legible.
- PASSED: The sources match the upstream source (md5 verified).
- PASSED: The package may be successfully built.
- FAILED: Not all build build dependencies are listed in BuildRequires.
You should add at least dos2unix.
- FAILED: The package does not build in mock due to missing BuildRequires.
- PASSED: A package does not contain any duplicate files in the %files listing.
- PASSED: Permissions are sane.
- PASSED: %clean section is fine.
- PASSED: macros usage is fine.
- PASSED: The package must contains code.
- PASSED: The package does not contain large documentation.
- PASSED: %doc contents is fine.
- FAILED: This package owns directory /usr/share/pear/HTML. It is
  already owned by php-pear-HTML-Common, so this package must Require
  it, and own only it's own subdirectory in /usr/share/pear/HTML.
- PASSED: There is rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT in the beginning of %install.
- PASSED: All filenames in rpm package are valid UTF-8.

Some other general notes:

You are packaging version 0.5.2 of the package which is a beta. There
is a newer upstream beta available. Could you please justify why are
you packaging an older release, or please upgrade to the newer
upstream version.
Comment 3 Remi Collet 2008-11-23 03:20:58 EST
I must disagree with Lev.

As this package run without HTML_Common (check all the "require_once" in the scripts), you don't have to "Requires" it. So you must also own the /usr/share/pear/HTML directory.

But %file must be cleared
Comment 4 Lev Shamardin 2008-11-23 03:34:39 EST
Agreed, I forgot to check the requires in the sorce code. BTW, may be this (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingDrafts/DirectoryOwnershipImprovement) is already should be included into the guidelines?
Comment 5 Remi Collet 2008-11-23 03:54:10 EST
See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#FileAndDirectoryOwnership
See 2 (Animal example).

Comment 6 Mamoru TASAKA 2008-11-23 11:49:10 EST
Then why does this package have to install files under %_datadir/pear/HTML ??

By the way currently on koji-11:
# repoquery --repoid=koji-11 --whatprovides '/usr/share/pear/HTML/*'

which all Requires php-pear-HTML-Common directly or indirectly.
Comment 7 Christopher Stone 2008-11-23 12:04:20 EST
I would recommend removing dos2unix entirely, and just sed which is part of the core build environment.

find docdir -type f -exec sed -i 's/\r//' {} \;
Comment 8 Remi Collet 2008-11-23 12:15:14 EST
In PEAR extension, the tree is a thematic classification (not a dependency one)
It's an upstream choice that packager cannot change.

Requires must be taken from the PEAR documentation or (best) from the source

In QuickForm.php => require_once 'HTML/Common.php';
So php-pear-HTML-QuickForm must requires php-pear-HTML-Common

In Table.php => require_once 'HTML/Common.php';
So php-pear-HTML-Table must requires php-pear-HTML-Common

In all the script from HTML_AJAX, there is no require/include outside of HTML/AJAX. So no need to require php-pear-HTML-Common

Comment 9 Remi Collet 2009-03-01 03:23:50 EST
No reponse, I close this bug to allow anynody else to submit this package again.
