Spec URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/nwsserver.spec

NetWorkSpaces (NWS) is a powerful, open-source software package that makes it
easy to use clusters from within scripting languages like Python, R, and
Matlab. It uses a Space-based approach, similar to JavaSpaces (TM) for
example, that makes it easier to write distributed applications. NWS looks and
feels like a conventional workspace in the base scripting language, enables
network script processes to share data, provides general distributed/parallel
script execution, runs network script processes either uncoupled or
coordinated, and dramatically increases developer productivity in implementing
and maintaining distributed applications because of its anonymous

rpmlint is silent.

Koji scratch build:
Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-03-06 10:34:30 EST
+ rpmlint output
+ package name satisfies the packaging naming guidelines

Although implemented in python, this is just a general program,
and the name of the program is acceptable to Fedora.

+ specfile name matches the package base name
+ package should satisfy packaging guidelines

Also checked Python guidelines, and OK.

+ license meets guidelines and is acceptable to Fedora
+ license matches the actual package license
+ %doc includes license file

There isn't a license file, but %doc includes the nearest thing,
and all source files are marked with the license anyway.

+ spec file written in American English
+ spec file is legible
+ upstream sources match sources in the srpm

d321ae5fd3a363167ac27f7959b56c8a / 22331 bytes

+ package successfully builds on at least one architecture
n/a ExcludeArch bugs filed
+ BuildRequires list all build dependencies
n/a %find_lang instead of %{_datadir}/locale/*
n/a binary RPM with shared library files must call ldconfig in %post and %postun
+ does not use Prefix: /usr
+ package owns all directories it creates
+ no duplicate files in %files
+ %defattr line
+ %clean contains rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
+ consistent use of macros
+ package must contain code or permissible content
n/a large documentation files should go in -doc subpackage
+ files marked %doc should not affect package
n/a header files should be in -devel
n/a static libraries should be in -static
n/a packages containing pkgconfig (.pc) files need 'Requires: pkgconfig'
n/a libfoo.so must go in -devel
n/a -devel must require the fully versioned base
n/a packages should not contain libtool .la files
n/a packages containing GUI apps must include %{name}.desktop file
+ packages must not own files or directories owned by other packages
+ %install must start with rm -rf %{buildroot} etc.
+ filenames must be valid UTF-8


? if there is no license file, packager should query upstream
n/a translations of description and summary for non-English languages, if available
+ reviewer should build the package in mock
+ the package should build into binary RPMs on all supported architectures
- review should test the package functions as described
n/a scriptlets should be sane
n/a pkgconfig files should go in -devel
+ shouldn't have file dependencies outside /etc /bin /sbin /usr/bin or /usr/sbin
