Description Diego Búrigo Zacarão 2009-08-10 12:05:29 UTC
Spec URL: http://diegobz.fedorapeople.org/packages/django-south/django-south.spec
SRPM URL: http://diegobz.fedorapeople.org/packages/django-south/django-south-0.6-1.fc11.rc1.src.rpm

South brings migrations to Django applications. Its main objectives are to
provide a simple, stable and database-independent migration layer to prevent
all the hassle schema changes over time bring to your Django applications.

This package is needed to suppress a dependency for the new Transifex 0.7-RC1.
This is my first package and I need sponsor.
Spec based on django-evolution package.

* Approved license and license tag matches LICENSE file.                     
  - No conflicting licenses found in headers of package.                     
  - License file included in %doc                                            
* Specfile is readable                                                       
* Source matches upstream but see below.                                     
* No locale files                                                            
* Not a shared library                                                       
* Not relocatable                                                            
* Owns all files and directories it creates                                  
* %clean section set corectly                                                
* macros used consistently                                                   
* code, not content                                                          
* %doc files do not affect package runtime.                                  
* All filenames are valid utf-8                                              


* Package name doesn't fit the guidelines but there is a lot of precedent for
  django plugins.  Asking on the fedora-packaging list.  options are:        
  - python-django-south                                                      
  - Django-south                                                             
  - Write an exception and use django-south                                  

  I like either the first or the last.

* You should add a revision to the checkout line in the Source0 comment so that
  someone can get the exact revision at a later date.  Something like this:
     # hg clone -r 3a3140b338a4 https://bitbucket.org/andrewgodwin/south/ django-south-0.6-rc1
  The idea is for the reviewer to know how to reproduce the exact tarball that is in the srpm.

* This is a pre-release so the Release should start with "0." to avoid update
  problems when 0.6 final is released.  Since it's a snapshot package, it
  should have some information about being a checkout encoded as well:
     %global vcsdate 20090710
     %global vcstag rc1-6
     Release:        0.1.%{vcsdate}hg%{vcstag}%{?dist}

* Does not build in koji:
    koji build --scratch dist-f12 django-south-0.6-1.fc11.rc1.src.rpm
    Looks like you need to BuildRequire: python-setuptools-devel

In case you haven't seen them, the packaging generic Guidelines and python Guidelines are relevant to this package:

Comment 4 Toshio Ernie Kuratomi 2009-08-12 22:49:23 UTC
Looks good.  Now builds in koji and the other issues have been addressed.  The only thing left is that there's now a tarball for the django-south-0.6 release but this is still building from an hg snapshot.  That's not a huge issue but there are several advantages to using the tarball:

* Since most people are going to be using the tarball, there's more QA effort going into the release from other ditributions and other people downloading it.
* The hg snapshot includes the hg repository so it's larger than the tarball.

Make that change and have the Source0: line point to the new tarball location and I'll approve this.
