Review Request: DMitry - Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool
Last modified: 2012-03-15 04:33:30 EDT
Spec URL: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dmitryrevived/files/DMitry.spec/download

Description: DMitry (Deepmagic Information Gathering Tool) is a UNIX/Linux command line program coded purely in C with the ability to gather as much information as possible about a host.
DMitry is currently an orphaned package but its last update was more than three months ago hence the new submission. Additionally, upstream appears to have died so I have taken over upstream maintenance and released a new version that fixes a few compilation warnings.
This is my first package so I will need to be sponsored.
Running rpmlint threw the following:
W: invalid-url URL: http://dmitryrevived.sourceforge.net HTTP Error 403: Forbidden
Not sure why as this URL is accessible?

I think it is better that you rename the upstream tarball
you maintain (and the project name) to DMitry-ng (new generation) or so,
name srpm as such and make DMitry-ng binary rpm obsolete/provide old
DMitry. How do you think?
Sorry for the late response, new house and new job!
Thank you for your response and advice, I agree with your suggestions and will make the modifications as soon as I can.
Ian, would you update the status?
I will once close this bug as NOTABUG if no response from the reporter
is received within ONE WEEK.
If someone wants to import this package into Fedora, please create
a new review request and mark this package as a duplicate of the
new one, thank you.
