Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-05-06 20:29:35 UTC
Spec URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/python-repoze-what-pylons.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/python-repoze-what-pylons-1.0-1.fc11.src.rpm
This plugin provides optional and handy utilities for Pylons applications
using repoze.what. Some of the features of the plugin include:
* The utilities are ready to use: There’s nothing additional to be configured
  before using.
* 100% documented. Each component is documented along with code samples.
* The test suite has a coverage of 100% and it will never decrease – if it
  ever does, report it as a bug!
* TurboGears 2 is officially supported as well.

Comment 1 Brennan Ashton 2009-05-24 03:54:26 UTC
[pass] source files match upstream:
sha256sum repoze.what-pylons-1.0.tar.gz 
fdf1453c99a290215646d869fb44bbf6652dd103787e7da84f1b5dc0964bf2fd  repoze.what-pylons-1.0.tar.gz

[pass] package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
[pass] specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
[pass] dist tag is present.
[pass] build root is correct.

[pass]license field matches the actual license.
[pass] license is open source-compatible.
license text not included upstream.

[pass]latest version is being packaged.
[pass] BuildRequires are proper.
[pass] compiler flags are appropriate.
[pass] %clean is present.
package builds in mock.
Has requires that are not in repos yet but builds with local builds of them.
[pass] package installs properly.

I will finish this a little later.

Comment 2 Luke Macken 2009-06-05 21:19:09 UTC

* Fri Jun 05 2009 Luke Macken <lmacken@redhat.com> - 1.0-2
- Add a patch to ensure we use our own setuptools.

Comment 3 Brennan Ashton 2009-06-14 05:51:03 UTC
The rest of the review:

[ATTENTION] rpmlint is silent.
rpmlint ../RPMS/noarch/python-repoze-what-pylons-1.0-2.fc11.noarch.rpm ../SRPMS/python-repoze-what-pylons-1.0-2.fc11.src.rpm python-repoze-what-pylons.spec 
python-repoze-what-pylons.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 11, tab: line 3)
python-repoze-what-pylons.spec: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 11, tab: line 3)
2 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 2 warnings.

this is simple to fix.

The package requires python-decorator >= 3.0 this is only in f12 not f11.  We need to either update it in f11 or see if it really needs 3.0.

The URL field is also wrong.

I will continue when these are addressed.

Comment 4 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2009-06-14 15:10:00 UTC
decorator-3.0 changes API but there's only a few things that currently depend on it in the distro:


The code in python-fedora should be fine (examined, not tested).

pinged kylev about python-pylons.

lmacken, you'll know about bodhi-server... If there's only one usage of decorator in bodhi, it's probably okay but could be ported to use python-fedora's generalization of the bodhi code.

Comment 5 Kyle VanderBeek 2009-06-14 22:18:29 UTC
I'm currently working on updating Pylons and dependencies to 0.9.7 in devel.  There are quite a few bits that need updating, so it may take me a day or two.

Comment 6 Kyle VanderBeek 2009-06-14 22:46:32 UTC
I looked at the decorator docs about compatability:


I then looked at the source for Pylons 0.9.7rc4 (current RPM) and 0.9.7 (what I'm working on) and neither version seems to run afoul of the changes.

 - decorator's get_info appears nowhere in pylons
 - decorator's new_wrapper appears nowhere in pylons
 - decorator's decorator is only used to wrap functions, no classes, and is never used to create a magic factory.

This is based on code perusal, not testing, but I'd give it 90% certainty that Pylons will be fine in F-11 if we update the python-decorator package.

Comment 7 Brennan Ashton 2009-06-15 03:38:18 UTC
I built the python-decorator 3.2 from f12 for this review, as well as a patched version of python-repoze-what (the package in testing has a simple spec file issue that is addressed in the review bug)

[PASS] owns the directories it creates.
[PASS] doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
[PASS] no duplicates in %files.
[PASS] file permissions are appropriate.
[PASS] code, not content.
[PASS] documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
[PASS] %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.

When the python-decorator issue is sorted out and spec file formatting issue in comment #3 are fixed I will APPROVE this package.

Comment 8 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-07-01 20:41:04 UTC
I doublechecked the URL issue, and it is definitely the correct upstream URL (it is the closest thing to a homepage that this project has).

New SRPM: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/python-repoze-what-pylons-1.0-3.fc12.src.rpm
New SPEC: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/python-repoze-what-pylons.spec

The rpmlint errors are fixed, and there is a clear Requires: python-decorator >= 3.0.

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2009-07-02 16:36:25 UTC
python-decorator-3.0.1-2.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.

Comment 10 Fedora Update System 2009-07-19 10:13:02 UTC
python-decorator-3.0.1-2.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 11 Luke Macken 2009-07-22 20:49:07 UTC
ping? Looks like this package can be approved?

Comment 12 Brennan Ashton 2009-07-22 22:27:44 UTC
I will verify tonight and approve. Sorry for the delay.

Comment 13 Brennan Ashton 2009-07-23 07:17:42 UTC
