Description Rakesh Pandit 2008-07-10 16:28:51 UTC

Sitecopy allows you to easily maintain remote Web sites.  The program
will upload files to the server which have changed locally, and delete
files from the server which have been removed locally, to keep the
remote site synchronized with the local site, with a single
command. sitecopy will also optionally try to spot files you move
locally, and move them remotely.  FTP and WebDAV servers are

This is my fifth package review submission and I am looking for sponsor.

Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2008-07-15 16:42:38 UTC
I'd be happy to review this. Look for a full review a bit later today...

df48499ad81b333a9d255c1709e09a1a  sitecopy-0.16.3.tar.gz.orig
See below - BuildRequires correct
OK - Spec handles locales/find_lang
OK - Package has %defattr and permissions on files is good.
OK - Package has a correct %clean section.   
OK - Package has correct buildroot
OK - Package is code or permissible content.
OK - Packages %doc files don't affect runtime.
OK - Package has rm -rf RPM_BUILD_ROOT at top of %install

OK - Package compiles and builds on at least one arch.
OK - Package has no duplicate files in %files.
OK - Package doesn't own any directories other packages own.
OK - Package owns all the directories it creates.
OK - No rpmlint output.
OK - final provides and requires are sane:


OK - Should build in mock.
OK - Should build on all supported archs
OK - Should have dist tag
OK - Should package latest version


1. The License tag here should be:
as far as I can see. All the source files say "or any later version".

2. From the build output:
checking for neon-config... none
configure: no external neon library found
configure: using bundled neon (0.26.0)
You seem to be missing a 'BuildRequires: neon-devel' ?

Possibly also:
configure: zlib not supported
configure: SSL support is not enabled

zlib-devel and openssl-devel ?

There might also be some gettext or the like BuildRequires missing, as
configure reports:
  Internationalization:  Built using native support

Comment 3 Rakesh Pandit 2008-07-16 15:00:44 UTC
1. Fixed

2. neon-devel - fixed
   internationalization - fixed
   openssl-devel - fixed 
   There are two messages:
        configure: zlib not supported
        configure: Thread-safe SSL not supported
   "zlib not supported" - From Changelog & configure script it looks like zlib 
code was breaking and they have disabled its use and bypassing functions. I 
will try to confirm by digging further today.

That does indeed solve all the issues I see, so this package is APPROVED. 

I have sponsored you, so you should continue the process at: 
for this and your other approved package.

Please let me know via email or irc if I can assist you any with the process...
