Description John Matthews 2010-01-26 10:09:49 EST
Spec URL: http://jmatthews.fedorapeople.org/jep/jep.spec
SRPM URL: http://jmatthews.fedorapeople.org/jep/jep-2.4-1.fc12.src.rpm
Jep embeds CPython in Java. It is safe to use in a heavily threaded environment,
it is quite fast and its stability is a main feature and goal.

Hi i'd like to take up the review; some preliminar notes:

* project name seems to be jepp (while Jep is the main class)
* use %global instead of %define
* pls fix indentation
* group for -javadoc is "Documentation"
* -javadoc pkg require jpackage-tools too
* if you put DSO in %{_libdir}/%{name}, shouldnt you add that dir to ld.so.cond.d?
* man page: use jep.1.*
* use install -p to preserve timestamps
Comment 2 Chen Lei 2010-05-05 05:08:47 EDT
Some minor problems:
1.Jni files are dlopend by jar files, so /sbin/ldconfig in %post and %postun is useless.
2.BuildRequires:  gcc is not needed.
Use BuildRequires: java-devel >= 1:1.6.0 and Requires:  java >= >= 1:1.6.0 instead of 1.5.0
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT is not needed.
examples should be installed into %{_docdir}
install -d -m 755 ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}%{_docdir}/%{name}-%{version}/examples
cp *.py ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_docdir}/%{name}-%{version}/examples

John, Are you still interested in getting this package into Fedora?
Comment 4 John Matthews 2010-08-31 13:02:03 EDT
Hello Alex,

Yes I would like to see this package get into Fedora.  

I will upload an updated srpm for review this week.

Hi Alex,

I still would like to see this get into Fedora, but I won't have time to work on this till mid December.  

If someone else is interested in picking this up, go for it.  Otherwise I will revisit this, update to latest Jep and fix the noted packaging errors when my schedule permits.
