Builds fine and rpmlint is silent.
The only statement of the GPL version in use is in setup.py; the source file just says
# This software may be freely redistributed under the terms of the GNU
# general public license.
which isn't all that specific. setup.py is sufficient for us to establish intent, even though it contradicts what's on the upstream web site. It would probably be a good idea to contact upstream and ask them to more clearly and consistently state the code license, and to follow the instructions in the "How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs" section of the GPL for indicating GPL version in individual pieces of code.
I installed this and it seems to work, although there's no documentation at all so I didn't do anything other than run it in a pipe.
The %description promises multiple scripts but I found only one.
None of these issues are significant enough to hold up this review, but it would be nice to get the license stuff cleaned up before the code base grows much more.
* 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 (besides promising more than one script).
* 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 is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
pipestat = 0.2-1.fc12
python(abi) = 2.6
* 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.
The package review process needs reviewers! If you haven't done any package
reviews recently, please consider doing one.
Thanks, since I am now a committer on the project I'll fix these items before the first released package in Fedora.
