Description: Cache the result of http get-requests persistently
Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-05-10 23:47:52 EDT
Why the complex License: tag?  "Same as Perl" is generally taken to mean "GPL+
or Artistic"; look for "Perl license" under
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing or the Perl packaging guidelines at 

Regardless of the comment you have in your %files section, this package should
own %{perl_vendorlib}/HTTP as well.  See the "File and Directory Ownership"
section of http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines for an
explanation.  cpanspec should have gotten this right.

* source files match upstream:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* summary is OK.
* description is OK.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
? license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text not included upstream.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
* package installs properly.
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   perl(HTTP::Cache::Transparent) = 1.0
   perl-HTTP-Cache-Transparent = 1.0-1.fc9

* %check is present and all tests pass:
   All tests successful.
   Files=3, Tests=3,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.17 cusr +  0.03 csys =  0.20 CPU)
X fails to own the HTTP directory.
* 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.
Comment 2 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2008-05-11 06:19:12 EDT
Well, indeed, directories under perl can be owned by multiple packages.
I think i've made the same mistake in others perl review I've submitted recently.

So, I will fix to:
License:        GPL+ or Artistic
%doc README Changes

Am I good, or should I provide another src.rpm/spec ?

Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2008-05-11 15:33:47 EDT
Sure, that's all that needs to be changed as far as I can see.  Go ahead and
make those changes when you check in.


If you want to make those changes to the other Perl packages you submitted, I'll
go ahead and get them reviewed as well.
