Description Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2008-10-09 16:36:34 EDT
licensecheck.pl is a very useful tool for reviewers (and package maintainers) and I think it'd be good to have it in rpmdevtools. Please consider adding it.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2008-10-13 16:29:06 EDT
Looks interesting, thanks for the pointer.  Some thoughts though, feedback welcome:

While most of the devscripts package seems more or less Debian specific on surface, I wonder if the scripts or a sufficiently large subset of them would also work on Fedora - in that case it would be a good idea to ship devscripts as a separate ("debian-devscripts"?) package instead of cherry-picking stuff to rpmdevtools.

licensecheck.pl could (should?) be patched so that it outputs a suggestion of the value for the License tag.

Ping, please add this ASAP...
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2009-07-28 12:41:06 EDT
Done upstream (along with annotate-output, checkbashisms and manpage-alert), will be in the next release.

Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2009-08-21 06:05:13 EDT
Included in 7.4-1.
Comment 6 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2009-09-13 08:20:02 EDT
Could we get a F11 build, too?
Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2009-09-13 17:17:19 EDT
I'll probably release 7.5 next week and push that to F-11+
