Comment 1 Armando Basile 2011-09-07 21:55:24 UTC
Spec URL:

- added ExclusiveArch
- added pcsc-lite, pcsc-lite-devel, pcsc-lite-libs dependency
- added %{?_smp_mflags} to make command

Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2011-09-08 20:00:03 UTC
Well, only did a very quick check

* License tag
  - GPLv2 is chosen for license tag in your spec, however
    I cannot see any files which specifies the version of
    GPL in the source. Note that just including GPLv2 license
    text does not actually specify the version of GPL
    used in the source.

    Currently License tag should be "GPL+"

* BuildRequires
  - Currently your srpm won't build on koji. Please make it
    sure that your srpm builds on koji (or with mockbuild)

    It seems mono-devel is needed for BR

* Explicit dependency
  - Note that with adding "BR: mono-devel", rpmbuild will find
    out mono-related runtime dependency (i.e. Requires)
    automatically and adds the detected dependencies to binary
    rpms. So writing "Requires: mono-core log4net" explicitly
    is not needed (after adding BR: mono-devel)

* Requires for main pacakge
  - Usually Requires for main package on subpackages should
    be (Epoch:)Version-Release specific and also isa specific

* pkgconfig dependency
  - Explicit "Requires: pkgconfig" is no longer needed on Fedora,
    it is added automatically by rpmbuild

* Deprecated usage
  Please remove lines which are no longer needed
  - %if 0%{?fedora} < 13 condition is useless. Fedora's version is at
    least 14 currently
  - The following is no longer needed on Fedora (EPEL may still need
    * BuildRoot: line
    * rm -fr %{buildroot} at the top of %install
    * %clean section

* Directory ownership issue
  - The directory %{_libdir}/mono/gac/ itself is owned by mono-core and
    this package should not own this directory itself.
  - The directory %{_datadir}/%{name}/ is not owned by any packages and
    this package should own it

* Requires: pcsc-lite-devel
  - Can't this be avoided by patching comex-base/comex-base.dll.config?

Note that I will be away till Sunday so it may be that replying to you
becomes late. By the way I will appreciate it if you would review my
review request (bug 678674)

about your review request bug 678674, i don't know ruby so i don't know how could i help you.

Well, I have not checked your latest srpm, however just for this:

Note that I don't know mono well, either :)

Wow, seems you are familiar with mono

Could try to review a mono package for first ?

Comment 6 Jason Tibbitts 2013-05-01 15:28:09 UTC
I am triaging old review tickets.  I can't promise a review if you reply, but by closing out the stale tickets we can devote extra attention to the ones which aren't stale.

spec and srpm links are invalid.

Comment 7 Armando Basile 2013-05-01 15:51:20 UTC
i updating specs and srmps, thanks for reply

Comment 9 Mario Blättermann 2013-06-22 10:06:19 UTC
Some initial comments before I give it a try on Koji:

Probably no debuginfo will be created, due to the nature of Mono software:
This is addressed by your comment in spec line 13. OK so far, but either you uncomment the line (if debuginfo will be usable in this certain case) or you have to escape the % signs with another one to make rpmlint happy. In some odd cases, even macros in comments could be expanded and lead to unexpected results.

Requires:	%{name} = %{version}
has to be
Requires: %{name}%{?_isa} = %{version}-%{release}
The isa tag needs to be added because your package is multiarch. The release tag makes sure that the -devel package will be updated with the base package.

is applicable for EPEL 5 only. As the second changelog entry says, you don't plan to package for EPEL 5, please remove that lines in the file lists.

In the file lists, %{_prefix}/lib has to replaced with %{_libdir}. Otherwise we would get a "hardcoded library path" warning from rpmlint. Or can you explain why you have to use /usr/lib explicitely instead of /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 depending on the package architecture?

* Thu May 02 2013 Armando Basile <hmandevteam>
In the %changelog section, it is unneeded to mention the distribution release. A simple "" is sufficient here. Doesn't matter which Fedora release is pointed by your spec, one could rebuild your package for f17 or f19, whatever, so that your "f18" tag becomes useless.

Requires: pcsc-lite
Requires: pcsc-lite-libs
The latter is not needed, it is required by pcsc-lite anyway.

You are using both tabs and whitespaces in your spec. It's rather cosmetic, but has to be fixed. I recommend spaces, that way the spec looks the same in any text editor, regardless of the configured tab width.

Comment 11 Armando Basile 2013-09-15 18:26:01 UTC
Hi Mario, i will modify specs and resubmit, thanks
