Description Gowrishankar Rajaiyan 2010-04-14 06:33:40 UTC
Spec URL: http://gowrishankar.fedorapeople.org/spec/lifeograph.spec
SRPM URL: http://gowrishankar.fedorapeople.org/srpms/lifeograph-0.6.2-1.fc12.src.rpm

Upstream URL: https://launchpad.net/lifeograph
Lifeograph is an off-line and private journal and note taking application.

Note: Debug-info package that gets created in empty.

Comment 1 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-05-01 18:36:20 UTC
Some notes:

* Using %name / %version macro in SourceURL
  - Using %name / %version (especially %version) in SourceURL
    is generally useful:

* Debuginfo rpm
  - Creating debuginfo rpm is a must and please fix this
  ! Note
    build.log shows
    77  g++ ../obj/*.o -O2 -s `pkg-config gtkmm-2.4 gconfmm-2.6 gtkspell-2.0 --cflags --libs` -lgcrypt -lgpg-error -o ../bin/lifeograph
    and "-s" option strips the binary.
    Passing 'LINKFLAGS=""' to make resolves this issue (for
    this package).

* Timestamps
  - This package installs many image files which are not modified during
    rpmbuild and keeping timestamps on those files is recommended.
    For this package, using
make debug install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT INSTALL="install -p"
    will keep timestamps on those files

    ! Note
      - For this package I don't think src/makefile need modifying,
        you can change the valiable used in src/makefile by passing
        option to make like:
make %{?_smp_mflags} OPTFLAGS="%{optflags}" LINKFLAGS=""
        and for install see above

* $RPM_BUILD_ROOT vs %buildroot
  - Please choose one and don't use both.

* desktop-file-install / desktop-file-validate
  - Once a desktop file is installed using desktop-file-install, there is
    no need to use desktop-file-validate for the installed desktop file
    (the installed desktop file is already verified).

* Directory ownership issue

  - The following directories are not owned by any packages:

Comment 3 Gowrishankar Rajaiyan 2010-05-13 09:51:40 UTC
Hi Mamoru,

I appreciate and thank you for reviewing the spec. Shall submit the new spec file asap.

Thank you once again.

Comment 4 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-05-21 16:40:05 UTC
ping again?

Comment 5 Gowrishankar Rajaiyan 2010-05-24 12:49:18 UTC
Hi Mamoru,

I am very sorry for the delay.
New spec and srpm has been uploaded to the following location:

Spec URL: http://gowrishankar.fedorapeople.org/spec/lifeograph.spec
SRPM URL: http://gowrishankar.fedorapeople.org/srpms/lifeograph-0.6.2-1.fc12.src.rpm

Comment 6 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-05-26 18:24:56 UTC
(Currently build for dist-f14 (rawhide) fails due to
 bug 596433)

Comment 7 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-05-26 18:45:37 UTC
From next time please change the release number every time
you modify your spec file (when version number doesn't change)
to avoid confusion, even during under review process.

Now for new -1:

! Comments
  - It is better that you remove comments which are no longer
    needed for readability.

! %clean section
  - If you want to import this package into F-12, %clean section
    is still needed.

* Duplicate files entry:
   145  warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/pixmaps/lifeograph
   146  warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/pixmaps/lifeograph.png
   147  warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/pixmaps/lifeograph/backgrounds
   148  warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/pixmaps/lifeograph/backgrounds/bg.png
   149  warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/pixmaps/lifeograph/backgrounds/bg.png
  - Note that the %files entry
    contains the directory %_datadir/pixmaps/lifeograph and all 
    files/directories/etc under this directory.
    Also this package should not own the directory %{_datadir}/pixmaps itself.

Comment 8 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-05-26 18:51:16 UTC

NOTE: Before being sponsored:

This package will be accepted with another few (or no) work. 
But before I accept this package, someone (I am a candidate) 
must sponsor you.

Once you are sponsored, you have the right to review other 
submitters' review requests and approve the packages formally. 
For this reason, the person who want to be sponsored (like you) 
are required to "show that you have an understanding 
of the process and of the packaging guidelines" as is described
on :

Usually there are two ways to show this.
A. submit other review requests with enough quality.
B. Do a "pre-review" of other person's review request
   (at the time you are not sponsored, you cannot do
   a formal review)

When you have submitted a new review request or have pre-reviewed other 
person's review request, please write the bug number on this bug report 
so that I can check your comments or review request.

Fedora package collection review requests which are waiting for someone to
review can be checked on my wiki page:
(Check "No one is reviewing")

Review guidelines are described mainly on:

I see your another review request for webmit (bug 586327), however
currently the spec file is too complicated and needs refresh. So
I would expect another review request from you or your pre-review
of other person's review request.

Comment 9 Gowrishankar Rajaiyan 2010-05-27 15:04:38 UTC
Hi Mamoru,

New spec file and srpm have been uploaded.

spec: http://gowrishankar.fedorapeople.org/spec/lifeograph.spec
srpm: http://gowrishankar.fedorapeople.org/srpms/lifeograph-0.6.2-2.fc12.src.rpm

I shall definitely pre-review of other person's review request or file a new review request at the earliest.

Thank you once again.

Comment 10 Mamoru TASAKA 2010-05-27 17:28:01 UTC
(Now this package builds also on rawhide)

For -2:

* %clean section
  - '[ "${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}" != "/" ] &&' part is not needed.

* %changelog
  - It is recommended that you put one line between each %changelog
    entry like:
* Thu May 27 2010 Gowrishankar Rajaiyan <gsr@redhat.com> - 0.6.2-2
- Update the spec file as per Mamoru's review in comment 7 of BZ-582106.

* Mon May 24 2010 Gowrishankar Rajaiyan <gsr@redhat.com> - 0.6.2-1
- Update the spec file as per Mamoru's review in comment 1 of BZ-582106. 
  Forgot to update the version number.

* Fri Apr 09 2010 Gowrishankar Rajaiyan <gsr@redhat.com> - 0.6.2-1
- initial spec
