Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-08-21 07:17:49 UTC
Spec URL: http://salimma.fedorapeople.org/specs/gnome/gdata-sharp.spec
SRPM URL: http://salimma.fedorapeople.org/specs/gnome/gdata-sharp-

The Google Data APIs (GData) provide a simple protocol for reading and
writing data on the web.

(needed to build some GNOME Do plugins)

Comment 1 Juan Manuel Rodriguez 2009-08-21 15:19:51 UTC
I checked the Spec: 
rpmlint is clean. No errors or warnings. 
It is Apache Licensed, which passes the license test. 

Now, I tried building it on Koji, and it failed for both 
F11: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1622399
F12: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1622369

I think its a bug related to mono-nunit22, because the build.log says: 
error CS0006: cannot find metadata file `nunit.framework.dll'

Comment 2 Juan Manuel Rodriguez 2009-08-21 16:34:12 UTC
Ok, so I checked gdata's makefile, and its faulty. 

Line 131 says:
$(CSC) $(DEFINES) -target:library -out:unittests.dll $(ALLREFS) -r:nunit.framework.dll $(test_sources)

I fixed it locally, by replacing the last part with:
-r:/usr/lib/mono/nunit22/nunit.framework.dll $(test_sources)

However, I haven't made a patch that looks on lib64 in case of 64 bit, my patch is only hardcoded to /usr/lib 

I'll try to find some examples for patching, to fix this asap.

Comment 3 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-08-21 18:22:08 UTC
*Scratches head* why did it work on my local machine? I'll try and work on it too, but if you get done first, just attach the patch to this bug. Thanks!

Comment 4 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-08-21 18:48:30 UTC
OK, it builds fine now. spec and SRPM at previous place. Here's the Koji build (for F-12):


Comment 5 Juan Manuel Rodriguez 2009-09-03 04:01:02 UTC
Builds for Fedora 11 too: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1651513

My only comments are that the patches aren't commented or reported upstream: 

Other than that, It's good to go.

Comment 6 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-03 06:24:30 UTC
New Koji F-12 build:

Updated spec is at the same location, with comments for the following:
- pkgconfig patch already in trunk
- nunit patch no longer necessary, with the fixed -nunit subpackage of F-12's mono (hurrah!)

To test this on F-11, you'd probably have to rebuild Mono yourself. I'll ping Toshio to check if we can start updating Mono packages in F-11 again.

98 out of 921 unit tests currently fail, so while I've added a %check section, the 'make test' invocation is currently commented out. Will check with upstream.

Comment 7 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-03 06:25:59 UTC
Juan, please assign the review to yourself, and set the fedora-review flag to '?' during review and '+' when you declare the package approved. Otherwise it might delay the package getting imported to CVS.


Comment 8 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-14 00:18:10 UTC
Changing status to ASSIGNED, just in case someone mistakenly lands on this bug looking for something to review.

Juan, could you update the review? It's blocking gnome-do-plugins.

Comment 9 Juan Manuel Rodriguez 2009-09-23 18:04:18 UTC
I managed to build it under Fedora 11, no need for rebuilding mono or anything (Maybe the updated mono packages landed already?)

The patches still need a comment on the upstream bug or the reason why they're needed. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#All_patches_should_have_an_upstream_bug_link_or_comment

It built on Koji: 
F11: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1701309
F12: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1701324

What's the status on the PPC / PPC64 rebuild?

Sorry for taking so long for the review, I've been really caught up. I think that's the last thing we're missing.

Comment 10 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-23 23:27:31 UTC
Hi Juan,

Oops, I forgot to commit and push my latest spec. Due to using the normal mono-nunit, it is now buildable on PPC / PPC64 as well. The rebuild is done a few weeks ago, AFAIR.


Koji F-11:

Comment 11 Juan Manuel Rodriguez 2009-10-03 22:31:49 UTC
rpmlint: clean
Header files must be in a -devel package. Done
Patches have a link to the upstream change, which means we'll no longer need them soon. 

Builds correctly on 
F11: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1726178
F12: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1726186

Package is APPROVED.
