Description Lubomir Rintel 2009-11-03 11:53:42 UTC
SPEC: http://v3.sk/~lkundrak/SPECS/saxon8.spec
SRPM: http://v3.sk/~lkundrak/SRPMS/saxon8-8.7-1.fc11.src.rpm
scratch build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1784869


This package does not contain latest version of Saxon, Version 8
is provided purely for compatibility purposes.

Saxon B is Saxonica's non-schema-aware implementation of the XPath 2.0,
XSLT 2.0, and XQuery 1.0 specifications aligned with the W3C Candidate
Recommendation published on 3 November 2005. It is a complete and
conformant implementation, providing all the mandatory features of
those specifications and nearly all the optional features.

Comment 1 Lubomir Rintel 2009-11-03 11:55:21 UTC

saxon8.noarch: W: no-documentation
saxon8-sql.noarch: W: no-documentation
saxon8-jdom.noarch: W: no-documentation
saxon8-dom.noarch: W: no-documentation
saxon8-xom.noarch: W: no-documentation
saxon8-xpath.noarch: W: no-documentation
saxon8-demo.noarch: W: no-documentation

Separate documentation subpackage is provided.

saxon8.noarch: W: dangling-symlink /usr/share/java/jaxp_transform_impl.jar /etc/alternatives

Not dangling, dependency on alternatives tooling satisfies it.
A common practice.

saxon8-javadoc.noarch: W: dangerous-command-in-%post rm

Is fine.

Comment 3 Lubomir Rintel 2009-11-03 12:14:58 UTC
Wait a second... probably I'll need saxon9 instead, and it would probably make more sense to package...

Comment 4 Lubomir Rintel 2009-11-03 15:01:41 UTC
SPEC: http://v3.sk/~lkundrak/SPECS/saxon9.spec
SRPMS: http://v3.sk/~lkundrak/SRPMS/saxon9-

Here's 9 version. Not much difference, xmlbeans 2.4 builds against this, but I'm not sure if I can use that yet. Oh, how I love you, stable java apis.

If you intend to start reviewing now, this two different packages shouldn't cause much trouble to you -- the packages are nearly identical. I'll try to clarify this ASAP!

So, making this a purely saxon9 review.

Comment 7 Alexander Kurtakov 2009-11-20 15:44:44 UTC
According to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/NamingGuidelines#Multiple_packages_with_the_same_base_name this should become saxon and current saxon should become saxon6 if still needed. Maybe you should contact saxon maintainer on that.

Comment 8 Lubomir Rintel 2009-11-20 16:44:09 UTC
Good point, Alexander. Raised to fedora-devel [1], saxon's packager on Cc.

Comment 9 Lubomir Rintel 2009-11-26 21:13:47 UTC
Saxon 6 is no longer needed. Everything that BRs it was verified to rebuild cleanly; only diveintopython needed Saxon 6 for processing XSLT 1.0 docbook stylesheets. Xalan-J seems to do the job as well.

Closing this.
