Description Steve Traylen 2011-04-07 20:46:38 UTC
Spec URL: http://cern.ch/straylen/rpms/IBSimu/IBSimu.spec
SRPM URL: http://cern.ch/straylen/rpms/IBSimu/IBSimu-1.0.4-2.fc14.src.rpm
Ion Beam Simulator or IBSimu is an ion optical computer simulation package
for ion optics, plasma extraction and space charge dominated ion beam
transport using Vlasov iteration. The code has several capabilities
for solving electric fields in a defined geometry and tracking
particles in electric and magnetic fields. The code is a constructed
as a C++ library for maximal versatility and openness.

There is  on rpmlint warning

macro-in-comment %40jyu

but this is a URL in the comment, presumably as long as that is not set then it won't 
be evaluated and remain as it is.


Comment 1 Golo Fuchert 2011-04-15 22:32:16 UTC
Dear Steve,

I had a look at your spec file and I don't think that there are major problems, however I need to have a closer look at it. Meanwhile I have two comments:

- Presumably the % won't make trouble, on the other hand, is the link really
  necessary? I mean the point is that you described why the patches are needed 
  and that upstream knows about them, in my opinion this should be sufficient.
  And we can slip the "ugly" %
- You wrote in the description: "The code is a constructed as a C++ library for 
  maximal versatility and openness." Probably there is an 'a' too much.

Comment 2 Steve Traylen 2011-04-16 09:48:25 UTC
Hi Golo,
 I can drop the URL and also I agree the first "a" should go:

"The code is a constructed as a C++ library for maximal versatility...."

I'll wait if you have more comments or fix these of course at import time.

[+] Package build at least on one primary architecture
[+] ExecludeArch is not known to be needed.

[o] No locales for the package
[+] Package stores shared libraries and calls ldconfig in %post/%postun
[+] Package does not bundle copies of system libraries

SHOULD items:

[o] No other Non-English languages supported.
[+] The package builds in mock.
[o] No koji scratch build because of conditional build macros.
[o] No "runnable" program packaged to test.
[+] No "exotic" scriptlets used.
[o] No other subpackages other than devel.
[+] pkgconfig(.pc) files placed in -devel pkg.
[o] No file dependencies.
[o] No binaries/scripts -> no man pages needed



- The packager might consider if a -doc subpackage is appropriate (large number 
  of files but small size), however, the present state is totally acceptable.
- The only minor issues were addressed in comment #1 and will be fixed.
