Comment 1 Ed Hill 2008-06-28 12:01:57 EDT
Here's a review (this time pasted into the correct bz entry!):

+ source matches upstream SHA1SUM:
    1a2b36d0f309690ad660c9c1ff177f76c2484104  libibcommon-1.1.0.tar.gz
    1a2b36d0f309690ad660c9c1ff177f76c2484104  libibcommon-1.1.0.tar.gz.UP
+ license is correct and correctly included in the main package
+ specfile looks clean and macros sane
+ proper use of ldconfig
+ *.la files are removed
+ proper use of -devel and -static
+ has %clean
+ builds in mock F8 x86_64
+ rpmlint reports just two ignore-able warnings:
    libibcommon-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation
    libibcommon-static.x86_64: W: no-documentation
+ dir ownership looks good
+ permissions look good

- according to the review guidelines, the spec must have:
    rm -rf %{buildroot}
  or the equivalent at the start of %install section.
- Is the ExclusiveArch really necessary?  Could it just be deleted?
  I'm only asking because the review guidelines now include specific
  rules concerning ExcludeArch and, if the ExclusiveArch is removed,
  then I think the package will be fine wrt those guidelines.  Maybe
  a comment such as "is known to work on arches ... but has not been
  tested on ..." would be enough?
Comment 2 Doug Ledford 2008-06-28 22:15:25 EDT
Fixed the %install section

Removed the ExclusiveArch.  The software can be built anywhere, but obviously
without a hardware driver, it's useless.  The ExclusiveArch just mimicked what I
knew to be working architectures as far as the kernel and the driver situation
is concerned.
