Description: Flickr upload tool and perl module using flickr API
* rpmlint is quiet
* name is well according to the guidelines
* source matches upstream
* clean and legible SPEC file, American English
* runs testsuite
* builds file in mock
* filelists, documentation ok
* sane provides/requires
* license ok
Given that this provides a user executable script, may I suggest splitting it into a subpackage "flickr-upload"? This will help indicate to the user that there is an enduser tool here, not just a Perl library.
For examples, see perl-App-Nopaste (nopaste), perl-App-Asciio (asciio), perl-Git-CPAN-Patch (git-cpan-patch), etc, etc.
I was thinking about splitting it into separate sub-package. But I decided no to as there is only one simple script, and summary also says that it's a flickr upload tool. But I can do it after the licensing issue on blockers is solved. Upstream is little unresponsive.
While I tend to think that creating a sub-package is useless here, I believe adding a 'flickr-upload' for the use case Chris mentioned in comment #2 may make sense.
(there are examples here as well, see perl-MIME-tools perl-Pod-Coverage perl-SOAP-Lite perl-Template-Toolkit perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker perl-DBI perl-Archive-Tar perl-Tk perl-Module-CoreList perl-SGMLSpm perl-Test-Harness perl-JSON-XS perl-Module-Signature perl-XML-Twig perl-File-Find-Rule perl-Archive-Zip perl-Pod-POM perl-CPAN perl-Module-Build)

I have reconsidered the sub-packaging flickr_upload script. When a basic user searches for, lets say "flickr", yum will find a lot of tools and perl-Upload-Flickr. Basic user probably won't think of this package as a perl library, but as an "application that uploads". Every other user can read the description, that reads "flickr upload tool and perl library". Maybe rather than sub-packaging, we should come up with a more descriptive summary.
This was APPROVED.
Please proceed filing a CVS request.
