Description Fabian Affolter 2009-01-15 19:05:20 EST
Spec URL: http://fab.fedorapeople.org/packages/SRPMS/deletemail.spec
SRPM URL: http://fab.fedorapeople.org/packages/SRPMS/deletemail-0.5-1.fc9.src.rpm

Project URL: http://www.jhweiss.de/software/deletemail.html

deletemail is a non-interactive tool for removing mail which is older
than a configurable number of days from one or more IMAP mailboxes. By
default, mail which is not marked as seen on the server will not be
deleted. If, for example, fetchmail is used for receiving mail from an
IMAP server, deletemail might be useful, since fetchmail deletes mail
either immediately or not at all. Thus, you could use fetchmails keep
option (so that fetchmail never deletes anything) and let deletemail
handle the removal of mail. Currently, the IMAP4 and IMAP4rev1 protocols
are supported, optionally using SSL/TLS for secure IMAP connections.

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2009-02-06 19:11:56 EST
This is tiny and it might be useful, so I'll take a look.

COPYING does indeed contain an MIT license, and many of the source files do as well, but a couple (strcasestr.c, strncasecmp.c) carry the BSD license.  However, it doesn't seem as though those two source files are used when building on Linux, and so the resulting package I believe still has the MIT license as you have indicated, so that's OK.

Honestly I don't see anything else to comment on.

* source files match upstream.  sha256sum:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* summary is OK.
* description is OK.
* 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.
* compiler flags are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
* package installs properly.
* debuginfo package looks complete.
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   deletemail = 0.5-1.fc11
   deletemail(x86-64) = 0.5-1.fc11

* I tested the package and it seems to work as advertised.
* 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
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -doc subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no static libraries.
* no libtool .la files.


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