Description Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-08-20 19:57:52 UTC
Spec URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/xblas.spec
SRPM URL: http://www.auroralinux.org/people/spot/review/new/xblas-1.0.248-1.fc12.src.rpm
The XBLAS library of routines is part of a reference implementation for
the Dense and Banded Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines, along with their
Extended and Mixed Precision versions, as documented in Chapters 2 and 4
of the new BLAS Standard.

Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-08-20 20:11:17 UTC
Scratch Build:

Comment 2 José Matos 2009-08-20 20:39:17 UTC
Just curious, why the call to autoconf at the end of the prep section?

After a general analysis of the spec it looks like it was taken from a schoolbook. ;-)

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2009-08-20 20:43:09 UTC
Because the patch for shared support applies to configure.ac, rather than configure, I need to rerun autoconf. 

As to the schoolbook nature of the spec, that's a good thing, right? :)

Comment 4 José Matos 2009-08-20 20:51:45 UTC
Yes, I noticed that after reading the documentation. Sorry. :-)

Being an assistant professor I can say that the schoolbook nature of the spec is a bonus. :-)

Expect a full review soon.

Comment 5 José Matos 2009-08-20 22:02:14 UTC

The source package is the same as upstream.

The license is correct (BSD) and appropriate for Fedora. This is even more appropriate in the case since the copyright comes from Berkeley. :-)

The package build in the supported Fedora architectures. (see #2)
Build on F11 and rawhide.

The package follows the packaging guidelines.

The package is _approved_.

PS: One small detail, I noticed that you have placed README.devel in the devel sub-package, after reading it I am not sure how useful the file is. I think that the content is useless for any developer, but I leave to you the final decision.

The README file on the other hand is really helpful and in a sense it belongs more to devel than to the main package. If you think that I am being pedantic in the last argument (README) then I agree with you and you are free to ignore me.
