Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-05-02 13:07:23 UTC
adjusting summary (blocking FE_NEEDSPONSOR is sufficient). :)

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-05-02 13:13:32 UTC
A few quick comments:

1. BuildRoot:      /tmp/spicebird
Use one of the suggested buildroots in the packaging guidelines.

2.  Source0:        spicebird-0.4.source.tar.bz2
This should be a full URL

3.  Release:        0%{?dist}
Start with 1

4.  MOZ_OPT_FLAGS=$(echo 
$RPM_OPT_FLAGS | %{__sed} -e 's/-O2/-Os/' -e 's/-Wall//')
ill-advised.  I'd recommend omitting this.

Also, good idea to try a scratch build in koji (I can help on irc if you don't 
know how to do that).

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-05-02 13:50:28 UTC
koji build --background --scratch dist-f9 spicebird-0.4-0.fc8.src.rpm

looks like you need at least:
BuildRequires: python

Fix that and the (1-4) items above, and then we can try another scratch build.

Comment 4 Steven M. Parrish 2008-05-02 14:43:02 UTC
Got all fixed but #1.  Have to get server up to host file.

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-05-02 16:21:17 UTC
Doing a local mock build now, seeing this:

c++ -o 
nsProxyEventObject.o -c -I../../../dist/include/system_wrappers -include ../../../config/gcc_hidden.h -D_IMPL_NS_COM -DEXPORT_XPTC_API -DMOZILLA_INTERNAL_API -DOSTYPE=\"Linux2.6.23.15-80\" -DOSARCH=Linux -I/xpcom/threads/ -I./../../reflect/xptinfo/src -I../../../dist/include/string -I../../../dist/include   -I../../../dist/include/xpcom -I../../../dist/include/nspr        -fPIC   -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions -Wall -Wconversion -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Woverloaded-virtual -Wsynth -Wno-ctor-dtor-privacy -Wno-non-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -pedantic -fshort-wchar -pthread -pipe  -DNDEBUG -DTRIMMED -O   -DMOZILLA_CLIENT -include ../../../mozilla-config.h -Wp,-MD,.deps/nsProxyEventObject.pp 

looks like optflags aren't being honored, so consider that MUSTFIX item 5.

As discussed on irc
item 6: currently bundles it's own copy of mozilla sources and runtime.  Look 
into using system-provided firefox-devel or xulrunner-devel

Comment 7 Steven M. Parrish 2008-05-04 17:52:40 UTC
Now successfully builds for F8 both i386 and x86_64.  F9 version may have to
wait for release 0.7

Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2008-05-07 19:14:56 UTC
Better, a few more items:
1.  drop
Requires:       desktop-file-utils >= %{desktop_file_utils_version}

2.  don't use /usr/local , should use

3.  install a .desktop file so the app appears in menus.

cvs done.

Comment 14 Kevin Fenzi 2008-05-21 18:36:15 UTC
I don't know if all the requirements are there, but would you consider
maintaining this in EPEL as well? either el5 or both el4/el5?

Comment 15 Fedora Update System 2008-05-21 20:32:09 UTC
spicebird-0.4-2.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8

Comment 16 Steven M. Parrish 2008-05-21 20:34:52 UTC
I'll check into the requirements for EPEL.  If I can get it to work I'll
maintain it.

Comment 17 Kevin Fenzi 2008-05-21 20:51:16 UTC
Now that I can look at your checked in spec (I couldn't get the mediafire links
to work right from here), some comments: 

- Since you are ExcludeArching ppc and ppc64, please file a bug and block the
ppcexcludearch bug so that the ppc team knows you need help getting this working
on ppc. Look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ReviewGuidelines and
look for the excludearch MUST item. 

- You are shipping your own copy of mozilla from 20071122? What sort of security
implications do we have here? Aren't you going to be potentially vulnerable to
tons of old security issues? As mentioned, can't you use xulrunner or

Comment 18 Steven M. Parrish 2008-05-21 21:00:33 UTC
This release relies on patches to the stock mozilla code base 20071122.  The
patches have been sent upstream and the next version .7 due out mid June should
build against xulrunner.

Comment 24 Kevin Fenzi 2008-06-26 15:56:11 UTC
Do you plan to build for f9/devel? 

Typically you should build and test in devel, then when stable push those out
for f9/f8. 

Comment 25 Steven M. Parrish 2008-06-26 16:16:56 UTC
The current version .4 is not compatible with gcc4.3,  version .7 due out this
month will be.  Once it is release will have F9/Devel versions.

Comment 26 Kevin Fenzi 2008-06-26 21:26:04 UTC
Just wanted to make sure devel and 9 were not missed. ;) 
Thanks for the clarification. 

Comment 27 Steven M. Parrish 2008-07-05 20:11:41 UTC
Package Change Request
Package Name: spicebird
Please remove the F-8 branch as it is causing polution see bug #453936.  Leave
the F-9 and Devel branches open as the next release due any day may resolve the
issue, however it only supports xulrunner, so there will be no new release for F8

Comment 28 Kevin Fenzi 2008-07-05 20:23:42 UTC
Well, we typically don't remove branches of anything... can you follow the 
procedure on this for just the F-8 branch? 

(ie, cvs rm the files, add a dead.package with a short description of what
happened, and then mail rel-eng to remove the package from the repos/buildsys)

Let me know if you run into any problems with that...
