Description Vít Ondruch 2011-01-19 17:10:22 UTC
Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/vondruch/rubygem-regin.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/vondruch/rubygem-regin-0.3.7-1.fc14.src.rpm

Description: Regin allows you to introspect on Ruby Regexps. Powered by an over the top regexp syntax parser written in racc/rexical.

Koji scratch build for rawhide: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2731428

Note that test are not included in gem, therefore they are not executed during build. Further discussion in Ruby-SIG mailing list.

Will take this one.

This package looks good, rpmlint looks good, passes the review guidelines.

One minor nit, "rm -rf %{buildroot}" is no longer needed and can be removed from the %install and %clean sections.

RE the tests, please consider the following Guideline

"SHOULD: The reviewer should test that the package functions as described. A package should not segfault instead of running, for example."

from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ReviewGuidelines#Things_To_Check_On_Review

Right now, rpms for gems which do not invoke the test suite are not being verified as functional at build time. Note this is independent of whether or not the test / spec suite is included in the final rpm or in a sub docs package (or not included at all).

Please consider adding it, you can with the following patch to your spec

$ diff rpmbuild/SPECS/rubygem-regin.spec.orig rpmbuild/SPECS/rubygem-regin.spec
> # The regin gem doesn't ship with the upstream Rakefile
> Source1: http://github.com/josh/regin/raw/v%{version}/Rakefile
> # You may check regin tests out like so
> # git clone http://github.com/josh/regin.git
> # cd josh
> # git checkout v0.3.7
> # tar czvf regin-tests.tgz spec/
> Source2: regin-tests.tgz
> %setup -q -c -T
> mkdir -p ./%{gemdir}
> gem install --local --install-dir ./%{gemdir} \
>             --force --rdoc %{SOURCE0}
> # move the Rakefile in place
> cp %{SOURCE1} .%{geminstdir}
> # move the tests into place
> tar xzvf %{SOURCE2} -C .%{geminstdir}
< rm -rf %{buildroot}
< gem install --local --install-dir %{buildroot}%{gemdir} \
<             --force --rdoc %{SOURCE0}
> cp -a .%{gemdir}/* %{buildroot}%{gemdir}
< rm -rf %{buildroot}
> pushd .%{geminstdir}
> rake test
> %doc %{geminstdir}/spec
> %doc %{geminstdir}/Rakefile

In any case, since I've verified the test suite works for this package version, everything looks to be in order

I have removed the "rm -rf" and added the specs as I proposed in Ruby-SIG. Please see updated versions if you like:

Spec URL: http://people.redhat.com/vondruch/rubygem-regin.spec
SRPM URL: http://people.redhat.com/vondruch/rubygem-regin-0.3.7-2.fc14.src.rpm

Nevertheless, I am going to request the repository. Thank you for your review.
