I can't sponsor you as a packager, however, I'll point out one or two things that jump out at me. 

First your source url doesn't conform to the package guidelines, see: 

Second, your build requires are just a tad too explicit. 
You don't need to specify gcc or make. 
take a look here: 

Your %files section has an empty %doc section and there are clearly docs that are appropriate to put in there. 

Your package has a license file, and it doesn't appear that's included either: 

You should use macros a bit more consistently - for instance in your files section it could be 
instead of

Hi Marco,

it seems your above linked SPEC file already contains the changes requested by David. However, you didn't upload a corresponding SRPM. Please always keep both files in sync, and bump the Release number every time you provide a modified package. Finally, post the URLs of the updated files so that the current reviewers get notified.

Here are some further comments:

- goaccess 0.3.1 has been released recently. Maybe you want to update the 
  package to the new version.

- According to the sources, the license seems to be GPLv2 only.

- You can also remove BuildRequires: glibc-devel, pkgconfig, autoconf, automake, 
  and libtool.

- In %build, drop the definition of variable CPPFLAGS. It's not required.

- Insert blank lines between the %changelog entries to increase legibility.

Hi David,
hi Martin,

thank you very much for your help.

I updated/uploaded the files for the current version.

Spec URL: http://marco-ziesing.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/goaccess.spec
SRPM URL: http://marco-ziesing.de/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/goaccess-0.3.2-1.fc13.src.rpm

I'm in contact with Gerardo from prosoftcorp cause of the wrong version number and file names on sf.net.

Hi Marco,

thanks for the update. The package looks much better now. Here are some more notes:

- In the latest upstream release, the copyright notice in the source files 
  has changed to GPLv2+, i.e. the text "or (at your option) any later version" 
  was added. Thus, you should update the License field accordingly.

- "Requires: autoconf" is still present 

- drop the "echo" statement in %prep to avoid redundant output

- Also, it's sufficient to use "%setup -q", as option "-n %{name}-%{version}" 
  is the default

- In the %changelog, replace "%build" with "%%build" to make rpmlint happy

$ rpmlint /var/lib/mock/fedora-13-x86_64/result/*.rpm

I meant "BuildRequires: autoconf", of course. :)

The author of GoAccess will fix the path on sf.net
Comment 7 Martin Gieseking 2010-09-24 05:44:04 EDT
When running goaccess without any options but with an additional argument, it crashes with a segfault. This should be reported upstream.

$ goaccess x

BTW, I can sponsor you if you're willing to do two or three informal package reviews in order to show a (basic) understanding of the packaging guidelines. This is important because you're allowed to formally review and approve other packager's submissions, once you have been sponsored. For that reason, you should be familiar with the guidelines and the reviewing process. If you're still interested in joining the packager group, let me know. :)

Good morning,

bug is fixed, path on sf.net is correct now and update to version 0.3.3 is online:

@Martin: Yes, i'd like to review a few packages.

OK, I'll contact you privately for further information.

| The Vendor tag should not be used. It is set automatically by the build system.

Further, it refers to the package vendor, currently the "Fedora Project".

sorry for the late response. Had a lot of pressure.

Comment 12 Christopher Meng 2013-07-20 00:16:47 EDT
Thank you for interested in this nice log software.

Unfortunately I've approved another request of this, and now goaccess is in Fedora. So I have to close this bug. Sorry for not asking your opinion before appproving that review.

Thanks for your concern again.
