Description Maxim Burgerhout 2010-01-22 15:09:08 UTC
Spec URL: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/284093/libyubikey.spec

Description: library for the Yubico authentication device, the Yubikey

A Yubikey is a little gadget that generates one-time passwords. I am working on packaging ykpers too, which allows for customization of AES key inside the Yubikey. ykpers requires libyubikey.

This is not the first Yubikey software in Fedora. We already have pam_yubico (a PAM module for the device) and ykclient (a general CLI) in the repositories.

This is my first package for Fedora, so I will need a sponsor. I'm happy to answer any questions.

Comment 1 Akio Idehara 2010-01-24 03:44:07 UTC
Hello. Here are some note:

(1) Documentation
  - "rpmlint" says "libyubikey-devel.i686: W: no-documentation".
  - Pay attention about which subpackage you include documentation in,
    for example API documentation belongs in the -devel subpackage,
    not the main one.
    * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Documentation

(2) Compiler flags
  - Compilers used to build packages should honor the applicable
    compiler flags set in the system rpm configuration.
    * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Compiler_flags
  - $RPM_OPT_FLAGS or %{optflags} for C, C++, and Fortran compilers.

(3) Timestamps
  - Please keep timestamps on installed files as much as possible:
    * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines#Timestamps
  - When using "cp" or "install" commands add "-p" option
  - Also please consider to add 'INSTALLFLAGS="-c -p"' to "make

(4) URL
  - The URL and the Source0 is old (redirected), please keep the
    latest URL.
     * "http://code.google.com/p/yubico-c/"

(5) binary files
  - If the software being packaged contains files intended solely for
    development, those files should be put in a -devel subpackage.
    * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Devel_Packages
      o %{_bindir}/modhex
      o %{_bindir}/ykdebug

(6) pkgconfig file
  - This library does not have pkgconfig file(.pc), so "BuildRequires:
    pkgconfig" is needless.

Comment 2 Maxim Burgerhout 2010-01-24 14:08:41 UTC
Thanks for looking at this, Akio. I went over your notes:

1. Correct, but as modhex and ykdebug went to -devel, so did README (which is about those two files for the largest part). So -devel now has a %doc section.
2. Fixed.
3. Looked into this. I redid the download so it's timestamp matches upstream. However, the Makefile doesn't seem to handle INSTALLFLAGS or pass it to install-sh, but the timestamps of installed files are intact, afaics. I don't think the install part needs fixing. Please correct me if I'm wrong; I really want to learn this. 
4. Fixed.
5. Moved them to -devel. I agree that is a better place for those binaries.
6. Fixed. Missed that.

Comment 3 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-01-24 19:15:18 UTC
Some notes for 1.5-3

* Compilar flags
  - "CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS"" in "make %{?_smp_mflags}" is not needed.

    configure generated by recent autotools acknowledges CFLAGS
    environment and %configure sets this.
    Please check what %configure actually does by
    $ rpm --eval %configure .

* Timestamp
  - Please consider to use
%{__make} install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT INSTALL="%{__install} -p"
    to keep timestamps on installed files. This method usually
    works for Makefiles generated by recent autotools.

* %defattr
  - Now we prefer to use %defattr(-,root,root,-)

* File placement
  - As the Summary of the main package already says "low-level C software 
    *development* kit", I don't see strict necessity for putting
    two binaries into -devel package.

  - Also "README" should usually be packaged in main package.

* %changelog
  - It is recommended to put one line between each %changelog entry
    like below because it is useful on Fedora CVS
* Sun Jan 24 2010 - Maxim Burgerhout <maxim@wzzrd.com> - 1.5-3
- Took out the dep on libusb1-devel
- Moved README doc to -devel: it's mostly about ykdebug and modhex

* Sun Jan 24 2010 - Maxim Burgerhout <maxim@wzzrd.com> - 1.5-2
- Used macros in Source0
- URL no longer point to redirect
- Removed INSTALL from documentation
- Moved modhex and ykdebug to -devel
- Inserted compilerflags 
- Inserted INSTALLFLAGS to keep timestamps
- Some more macros for make and sed

* Wed Jan 20 2010 - Maxim Burgerhout <maxim@wzzrd.com> - 1.5-1
- First packaged release

Comment 5 Akio Idehara 2010-01-25 13:39:12 UTC
Sorry. The above review comment was my FIRST one and it introduced the confusion....

  I have one question about rpmlint.
  It still says "libyubikey-devel.i686: W: no-documentation".
  Could we simply ignore this message?

If the needed documents are already installed in one of the
rpms the rpm depens on, we ignore this warning.

Thanks! Here's the CVS request:

New Package CVS Request
Package Name: libyubikey
Short Description: C library for decrypting and parsing Yubikey One-time passwords
Owners: wzzrd
Branches: F-12

Comment 10 Jason Tibbitts 2010-01-27 05:25:06 UTC
CVS done (by process-cvs-requests.py).

Comment 11 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-01-27 14:23:52 UTC
Please actually build this package on koji (not by scratch build)
and for F-12 please submit push requests on bodhi.

Comment 12 Maxim Burgerhout 2010-01-27 14:33:15 UTC
Will do. CVS import gave me a hard time this morning, so as soon as I have that working, I'm building. The scratch builds were just me checking out koji.

Comment 13 Fedora Update System 2010-01-27 19:43:40 UTC
libyubikey-1.5-4.fc12 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 12.

Comment 14 Maxim Burgerhout 2010-01-27 19:45:23 UTC
Submitted to Bodhi. Thanks, Mamoru!

Package Change Request
Package Name: libyubikey
New Branches: el5 el6
Owners: wzzrd

Recent builds of fedora-packager require ykpers (and therefore libyubikey); fedora-packager availability in EPEL requires availability of ykpers and libyubikey in EPEL, too.

Comment 18 Tom "spot" Callaway 2010-10-13 15:09:38 UTC
Git done (by process-git-requests).
