Description Gabriel Somlo 2008-10-20 17:36:34 EDT
Spec URL: http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~somlo/vtun.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~somlo/vtun-3.0.1-1.fc8.src.rpm
VTun provides a method for creating Virtual Tunnels over TCP/IP networks
and allows one to shape, compress, and encrypt traffic in those tunnels.
Supported types of tunnels are: PPP, IP, Ethernet and most other serial
protocols and programs.
VTun is easily and highly configurable: it can be used for various
network tasks like VPN, Mobile IP, Shaped Internet access, IP address
saving, etc. It is completely a user space implementation and does not
require modification to any kernel parts.

 W: log-files-without-logrotate /var/log/vtund

please consider adding logrotate script.

In the %files section, we prefer to use 
   %defattr(-, root, root, -)

please also consider preserving timestamps of installed files:

-p flag for install command
and INSTALL="install -p" parameter for makeinstall target.

SRPM URL: http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~somlo/vtun-3.0.1-2.fc8.src.rpm

Fixed %defattr

Added -p flag to %{__install} and %{__make} install

I did consider adding a logrotate script before I submitted the review request, but decided against it. vtund does not currently play nicely with having its per-connection traffic counter "log" files rotated (i.e., will not listen to a signal or otherwise detect that the files have been rotated, and will keep writing to the old files until completely restarted). Besides, the real vtund log entries go to syslog. I am considering submitting a feature request (or a patch) to upstream re. rotating connection stats files in /var/log/vtun, but a logrotate script won't help us at this time.

If so is it really necessary to install /var/log/vtund ?

If the user enables connection stats logging in the config file (/etc/vtund.conf),
the program does generate these files, and I think it might be nice to have the
directory there even though rotating the files therein is not (yet) supported.

OK  source files match upstream (using corrected URL):
        c342ffe77055d4248a38f0b380f28c1b  vtun-3.0.1.tar.gz
OK  package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
OK  specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
OK  summary is OK.
OK  description is OK.
OK  dist tag is present.
OK  build root is OK.
OK  license field matches the actual license.
OK  license is open source-compatible.
OK  license text included in package.
OK  BuildRequires are proper.
N/A compiler flags are appropriate.
OK  %clean is present.
OK  package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
OK  package installs properly.
OK  debuginfo package looks complete.
OK  rpmlint is silent.
vtun.x86_64: E: non-readable /etc/vtund.conf 0600
vtun.x86_64: W: log-files-without-logrotate /var/log/vtund
vtun.x86_64: W: incoherent-subsys /etc/rc.d/init.d/vtund $prog
First error and last warning can be ignored. 
While the second warning about logfile wont't work for this package.

OK  final provides and requires are sane:
   vtun = 3.0.1-2.fc10
   vtun(x86-64) = 3.0.1-2.fc10
   config(vtun) = 3.0.1-2.fc10

N/A no 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  scriptlets present look OK
OK  initscript looks OK.
OK  code, not content.
OK  documentation is small, so no -doc subpackage is necessary.
OK  %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
OK  no headers.
OK  no pkgconfig files.
OK  no static libraries.
OK  no libtool .la files.
N/A not a gui app, no desktop file

- Use "|| :" at the end of commands in scriptlets because RPM will abort
scripts in the event of errors.
