Description Ken Dreyer 2011-03-02 01:16:28 UTC
Spec URL: http://adiemus.org/~kdreyer/rpms/perl-Nagios-Plugin-WWW-Mechanize.spec
SRPM URL: http://adiemus.org/~kdreyer/rpms/perl-Nagios-Plugin-WWW-Mechanize-0.13-1.fc13.src.rpm and 

Description: Login to a web page as a user and get data as a Nagios plugin. This module ties Nagios::Plugin with WWW::Mechanize so that there's less code in your perl script and the most common work is done for you.

I would like to get this package into Fedora. EPEL 5/6 would require getting perl-WWW-Mechanize into EPEL (I may be willing to be the EPEL maintainer for that in the future).

I'm a long-time Fedora user, and I'm looking to be a developer. I maintain a few RPMs at work, but this is my first couple of packages in Fedora, so I'm seeking a sponsor. My first package is at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=678727

Koji scratch build for F15 is actually http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2877487

Comment 3 Steve Traylen 2011-03-03 19:09:53 UTC
- Package meets naming and packaging guidelines
It does.
- Spec file matches base package name.
- Spec has consistant macro usage.
- Meets Packaging Guidelines.
- License
GPL+ or Artistic
- License field in spec matches
It does.
- License file included in package
It does
- Spec in American English
- Spec is legible.
- Sources match upstream md5sum:
$ md5sum Nagios-Plugin-WWW-Mechanize-0.13.tar.gz ../SOURCES/Nagios-Plugin-WWW-Mechanize-0.13.tar.gz 
8cfc2c93d84a88756666c3d7a6baf69e  Nagios-Plugin-WWW-Mechanize-0.13.tar.gz
8cfc2c93d84a88756666c3d7a6baf69e  ../SOURCES/Nagios-Plugin-WWW-Mechanize-0.13.tar.gz

- BuildRequires correct
- Package has %defattr and permissions on files is good.
- Package has a correct %clean section.
- Package has correct buildroot
%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
- Package is code or permissible content.
- Doc subpackage needed/used
Not needed.

- Packages %doc files don't affect runtime.
The don't

- Package doesn't own any directories other packages own.
- Package owns all the directories it creates.
- No rpmlint output.

rpmint is clean as above.

- final provides and requires are sane:
COMMENT , a few double requires that could be cleaned up.


- Should build in mock.
- Should build on all supported archs
- Should function as described.
The checks work at lease.
- Should have dist tag
- Should package latest version
Yes it's the latest


1) I'm not entirely sure why to be honest but in the past I've been asked to change 

make pure_install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT

2) You have in your .spec file an explicit

Requires:       perl(Nagios::Plugin)
Requires:       perl(WWW::Mechanize)

which results in double entries in the requires from 
rpm -qp --requires perl-Nagios-Plugin-WWW-Mechanize-0.13-2.fc14.noarch.rpm

As a gneral rule if yours requires are being auto determined you should not include
them explicitly.

3) Something I try and do is when you have a BuildRequires that is only needed on EL6
    then I place it inside an OS conditional

This makes it obvious that when RHEL6 is buried you can get rid of these lines. Of course
sometimes it is requirement since the dependency names changes between releases.

Comment 4 Ken Dreyer 2011-03-04 07:13:47 UTC
Thank you Steve. I've updated to a -3 release.

ChangeLog for -3:
- rm explicit Requires (Nagios::Plugin and WWW::Mechanize are auto-determined)
- Wrap BuildRequires for EL6 in a conditional DistTag
