Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-12 19:49:12 EDT
Builds fine and rpmlint is silent.  I see two issues, one minor and one major.

The minor one: the sed and chmod at the end of %install seem to me to make more
sense in %prep.

The major one: You need to be consistent about using macros like %{__cc}; you
need to use %{__rm}, %{__mkdir}, %{__chmod} and %{__sed} instead.  Or just use
the non-macro forms everywhere.

* source files match upstream:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named and is cleanly written.
X specfile does not use 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 included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* compiler flags are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
* package installs properly.
* debuginfo package looks complete.
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   lua-lpeg = 0.8.1-1.fc10
   lua >= 5.1

* %check is present and all tests pass.
* no shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
* owns the directories it creates.
* 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.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no static libraries.
* no libtool .la files.

I've fixed both of these issues. New SRPM is at

You almost got me there now, to obey the guidelines ;-) Thanks for the review,
wanna hop on to bug #450527 or bug #450539 ?
Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-14 14:35:47 EDT
Still builds fine; the issues I had are fixed, although I admit that I can't
figure out why anyone would prefer "%{__rm}" to "rm".  In the end it's up to you.


I'll try to look at libkni; service-discovery-applet is a bit beyond my regular
 knowledge as I don't even run gnome.
Comment 4 Tim Niemueller 2008-06-16 04:11:00 EDT
I used it because I didn't want to hardcode gcc but use %{__cc} instead. If I
have to be consistent I'll rather use the macros for *this* package...

Thanks for the review!
