Description Jens Petersen 2008-12-15 01:31:54 EST
Spec URL: http://petersen.fedorapeople.org/ghc-paths/ghc-paths.spec
SRPM URL: http://petersen.fedorapeople.org/ghc-paths/ghc-paths-
Knowledge of GHC's installation directories.

Needed by recent haddock to build.
Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-12-16 20:42:23 EST
Builds fine; rpmlint says:
  ghc-paths-prof.x86_64: W: no-documentation
which is true, and not a problem.

  ghc-paths.x86_64: W: devel-file-in-non-devel-package 
  ghc-paths-prof.x86_64: W: devel-file-in-non-devel-package 
which are normal for Haskell packages.

The only real complaint I have is that the module description doesn't make a whole lot of sense.  I guess it must make sense if you understand Haskell (which I don't); that's not really unheard of when it comes to specialized modules for various languages, so I'm not going to worry about it.  Maybe you can think of something more sensible.

* source files match upstream.  sha256sum:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
* package installs properly.
* rpmlint has acceptable complaints.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   ghc-paths-devel =
   ghc-paths =
   ghc-paths(x86-64) =
   ghc = 6.10.1

   ghc-paths-prof =
   ghc-paths-prof(x86-64) =
   ghc-paths =
   ghc-prof = 6.10.1

* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no generically named files
* scriptlets OK (ghc package registration and documentation indexing)
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -doc subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.


The package review process needs reviewers!  If you haven't done any package
reviews recently, please consider doing one.

Thanks for the review. :)  I will improvement the description of the package when importing.

Package imported and built ghc-paths-
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2009-03-08 22:59:28 EDT
My "bad" but this package should be renamed to ghc-ghc-paths since the Haskell library itself is called ghc-paths.
Renaming will keep cabal2spec-diff happy and make it easier to keep the package in sync with the templates.
