Description Damien Durand 2010-01-11 22:08:32 UTC
Spec URL: http://splinux.fedorapeople.org/cdf/cdf.spec
SRPM URL: http://splinux.fedorapeople.org/cdf/cdf-0.2-1.fc12.src.rpm

Description: cdf means "colorized df". The main features of cdf are:

* customazable color schemes
* eye-friendly capacity bars
* most of such utils needs some 3rd party libraries, 
python interpreter and so on, while cdf written in pure C

Comment 1 Rich Mattes 2010-01-12 03:18:06 UTC
I'm not an approved packager yet, so I'll give you an informal review.

-rpmlint output is clean, and should be included in the review request:
$ rpmlint cdf.spec ../RPMS/i686/cdf-*
2 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

- No koji builds?
- spec file looks ok
- Upstream source URL works
- Upstream archive md5sum matches md5sum of source in srpm
- Builds in mock (fedora-12-i386)
- License matches source files

Comments about the program itself:
1) Program installs and runs fine, but doesn't handle long names gracefully.  It pushes the columns out of line and line wraps, making the output inconsistent and not so eye-friendly.  Beyond the scope of packaging, but I thought I'd mention it.

2) It says the color scheme is customizable, but doesn't say how.  Maybe a manpage or readme could be included to explain it.

The configuration file is cdfrc.sample

Translation suggestions:
customazable -> customizable

* most of such utils needs some 3rd party libraries,
python interpreter and so on, while cdf written in pure C
* Most similar tools need 3rd party libraries, e.g. a python interpreter. cdf is
written in pure C.

     no files outside of /etc, /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, or /usr/sbin are required

=== Issues to be point out ===
The make command lacks the %{optflags} macro. I guess this is intended, since
the package does not build with the optflags. You should add at least a comment,
why you didn't use the optflags macro.

You can use the %{name} macro in line 41.

I can fully reproduce the two issues Rich mentioned. They shall not block this
review, but it would be really nice if you would report them to upstream if
you didn't yet.

The two issues I mentioned don't block the review neither. Anything else looks
great, your package is APPROVED.
