Description Randy Berry 2008-09-23 22:15:37 UTC
Spec URL: http://dp67.fedorapeople.org/pkgs/SPECS/cwirc.spec
SRPM URL: http://dp67.fedorapeople.org/pkgs/SRPMS/cwirc-2.0.0-2.fc9.src.rpm
Description: CWIRC is an X Chat plugin that allows the user to send and receive Morse Code (CW) over IRC. Active CWIRC on IRC channels include #CW on irc.freenode.net. Requires XChat 2.0 or higher to use. When installed a user button is added to X Chat to allow activation/deactivation of the plugin. This is my first submission for review sponsorship is needed.

Sponsor Needed = Yes
rpmlint        = Pass
RPM Build      = Pass
Mock Build     = Pass

Comment 1 manuel wolfshant 2008-09-24 02:22:53 UTC
rpmlint is not silent:
the src.rpm:
[wolfy@wolfy tmp]$ rpmlint cwirc-2.0.0-2.fc9.src.rpm
cwirc.src: W: non-standard-group Applications/Communication
cwirc.src: W: no-version-in-last-changelog
cwirc.src: W: no-url-tag
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 3 warnings.

the binary:
[wolfy@wolfy tmp]$ rpmlint /var/lib/mock//epel-5-x86_64/result/cwirc-2.0.0-2.el5.x86_64.rpm
cwirc.x86_64: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/cwirc-2.0.0/LISEZMOI
cwirc.x86_64: W: non-standard-group Applications/Communication
cwirc.x86_64: W: no-version-in-last-changelog
cwirc.x86_64: W: no-url-tag
cwirc.x86_64: W: empty-%post
cwirc.x86_64: W: empty-%postun
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 6 warnings.

Please also make sure that https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Compiler_flags is respected. The current spec always uses "-Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -DLINUX -fPIC -c "

On the plus side, it loads and seems to run on Centos 5/x86_64.

Comment 2 Randy Berry 2008-09-24 22:24:06 UTC
Fixed rpmlint issues

Currently working on: 
"The current spec always uses "-Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -DLINUX -fPIC -c "

Comment 3 Randy Berry 2008-09-28 07:32:26 UTC
Added patch to fix breakage when applying CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS" to spec

rpmlint    = pass
rpm build  = pass
mock build = pass

Comment 4 manuel wolfshant 2008-09-28 10:24:37 UTC
Please bump the release tag and list here the URL of the new spec + src.rpm each time you modify the spec. This makes tracking versions easier for everyone

Your idea to use a general function plus a loop to convert the french documentation to UTF-8 is nice. But replacing two lines of code with a 6 lines function + a 3 line loop hardly can be seen as an economy :) Anyway, please use
         iconv -f "$2" -t utf-8 < "$1" > "${1}_"
         touch -R "$1" "${1}_"
         mv -f "${1}_" "$1"
thus preserving the timestamp of the original file.

We still have one problem: the debuginfo that is generated is empty. I am also certain that the culprit are the two "strip " lines from the end of the build:
  gcc -shared -lm  -o cwirc.so plugin.shared.o ipc.shared.o grid.shared.o propagation.shared.o cwframe.shared.o
  strip cwirc.so
  gcc -lm  `pkg-config --libs gtk+-2.0` -o cwirc_frontend frontend.o io.o gui.o ipc.o keyer.o grid.o propagation
.o cwsound.o cwdecoder.o cwframe.o rcfile.o extension.o
  strip cwirc_frontend
  + exit 0

Spec URL: http://dp67.fedorapeople.org/pkgs/SPECS/cwirc.spec
SRPM URL: http://dp67.fedorapeople.org/pkgs/SRPMS/cwirc-2.0.0-4.fc9.src.rpm

Fixed release numbers in spec file, uploaded new version to reflect release number, added patch to remove STRIP to generate debug file, changed LISEZMOI document to UTF-8 while preserving original date.

rpmbuild   = pass

Comment 6 manuel wolfshant 2008-09-28 20:42:27 UTC
Everything seems OK now.
As potential sponsor, now I would like to see  either some other packages submitted by you to Fedora or some pre-reviews done by you for packages submitted for Fedora. You can use https://bugzilla.redhat.com/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&component=Package%20Review&bug_status=NEW to locate the submissions in need of review.

Comment 7 manuel wolfshant 2009-01-08 00:52:30 UTC
Randall, can we see anything else that you have done related to Fedora Packaging ?

Comment 8 Randy Berry 2009-01-08 12:02:44 UTC
3 reviews so far:


1 reviewed and approved package that I am currently trying to get to work on 64 bit but so far have been unsuccessful. Koji won't build it on 64 bit.


Sponsor no longer needed.

Comment 9 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-01-08 12:57:58 UTC
Confirmed, said his sponsor.

Comment 10 manuel wolfshant 2009-01-08 13:18:24 UTC
heh, I was waiting for input in order to sponsor Randall :)
