Review Request: libasyncns - Asynchronous Name Service Library
Last modified: 2008-08-24 17:36:59 EDT
Spec URL: http://0pointer.de/public/libasyncns.spec
SRPM URL: http://0pointer.de/public/libasyncns-0.4-1.fc10.src.rpm
libasyncns is a C library for Linux/Unix for executing name service queries asynchronously. It is an asynchronous wrapper around getaddrinfo(3), getnameinfo(3), res_query(3) and res_search(3) from libc and libresolv.
In contrast to GNU's asynchronous name resolving API getaddrinfo_a(), libasyncns does not make use of UNIX signals for reporting completion of name queries. Instead, the API exports a standard UNIX file descriptor which may be integerated cleanly into custom main loops.
In contrast to asynchronous DNS resolving libraries like libdenise, skadns, adns, libasyncns is just an asynchronous wrapper around the libc's synchronous getaddrinfo() API, which has the advantage of allowing name resolution using techniques like Multicast DNS, LDAP or NIS using standard libc NSS (Name Service Switch) modules. libasyncns is compatible with IPv6 if the underlying libc is.
This has been a recommended (though optional) PulseAudio dependency for quite a while, but I never bothered to actually package this for Fedora. So here it finally is.
OK source files match upstream:
OK package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
OK specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
OK dist tag is present.
OK build root is correct.
OK license field matches the actual license.
OK license is open source-compatible (LGPLv2+). License text included in package.
OK latest version is being packaged.
OK BuildRequires are proper.
OK compiler flags are appropriate.
OK %clean is present.
OK package builds in mock (Rawhide/x86_64).
OK debuginfo package looks complete.
OK rpmlint is silent.
OK final provides and requires look sane.
N/A %check is present and all tests pass.
OK shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
OK owns the directories it creates.
OK doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
OK no duplicates in %files.
OK file permissions are appropriate.
OK correct scriptlets present.
OK code, not content.
OK documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
OK %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
OK headers in devel.
OK pkgconfig files in devel.
OK no libtool .la droppings.
OK not a GUI app.
this package is APPROVED
you could remove --disable-rpath when calling %configure as it is not understood
configure: WARNING: Unrecognized options: --disable-rpath

Lennart, you should close this "bug" after the package is imported and built.
