Description Ruben Kerkhof 2008-04-26 00:36:13 UTC
Spec URL: http://ruben.fedorapeople.org/whatsup.spec
SRPM URL: http://ruben.fedorapeople.org/whatsup-1.7-1.fc9.src.rpm
Whatsup is a cluster node up/down detection utility.

Whatsup can quickly calculate and output the up and down nodes of a cluster.
Whatsup allows some tools, such as Pdsh, to operate more quickly by
not operating on down nodes. Whatsup calculates the up and down nodes of a
cluster through one of several possible backend tools
and several optional cluster node databases.

I have run the spec file against rpmlint and it gives the following result.
whatsup.spec:122: E: files-attr-not-set
whatsup.spec:123: E: files-attr-not-set
whatsup.spec:124: E: files-attr-not-set
whatsup.spec:125: E: files-attr-not-set
whatsup.spec:126: E: files-attr-not-set
0 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 5 errors, 0 warnings.

These errors a result of a missing %defattr(-,root,root,-)

The packages compiles OK under Mock.
License looks OK 

The current upstream version of the package is 1.8-1 (which came out after this review was requested), The package should be upgraded to the current version which may eliminate the need for the patches.

I did not finish the review as the spec file is fixed and the package update a full review can be done.

Comment 2 Ruben Kerkhof 2008-08-14 16:48:48 UTC
Thanks for the review,

I've fixed the rpmlint errors, and updated the package to the new upstream version.
