New version
- Added s390x as 64 bit arch

Comment 2 Mattias Ellert 2009-04-17 09:45:29 EDT
Package updated due to new packaging guidelines
- Change defines to globals
- Remove explicit requires on library packages


Draft packaging guidelines for Globus packages are now available:
Comment 3 Orcan Ogetbil 2009-04-23 23:55:25 EDT
I finished reviewing this. There is only one issue that I need to ask:

? This one has doxygen documentation. Any reasons for not building/packaging it?

The package build fine in rawhide:
Comment 4 Mattias Ellert 2009-04-24 02:59:58 EDT
There are comments in the headers describing the API, but they are not proper doxygen markup. It is possible to build the package with the instructions to generate a doc package, but it will be rather empty:


As you can see there are no section 3 man pages, nor any html pages with content - only the empty stub created by doxygen. The pdf manual only has the frontpage and an empty content page.

So the doc package is possible to produce, but is rather useless.
Comment 5 Orcan Ogetbil 2009-04-24 12:05:58 EDT
No need to produce it if it is useless. But take a note somewhere in case things change with the next upstream release.

This package (globus-rsl-assist) is APPROVED by oget
Comment 6 Mattias Ellert 2009-04-24 12:29:38 EDT
Thank you for the review. I will definitely check if the documentation is buildable in new releases.
