Description Ville-Pekka Vainio 2011-09-17 19:20:54 UTC
Spec URL: http://vpv.fedorapeople.org/packages/libreoffice-voikko.spec
SRPM URL: http://vpv.fedorapeople.org/packages/libreoffice-voikko-3.2-1.fc15.src.rpm
Description: This package contains a Finnish spell-checking and hyphenation component for
LibreOffice. The actual spell-checking and hyphenation functionality is
provided by the Voikko library.

This is a re-review request for a package rename, the old package is called openoffice.org-voikko. Upstream renamed the package a while ago and since then Fedora has been shipping a somewhat outdated version with the previous name.

Here are the Provides and Obsoletes from the spec file:
Provides:         openoffice.org-voikko%{?_isa} = %{version}-%{release}
Obsoletes:        openoffice.org-voikko%{?_isa} < 3.1.2-5

The final openoffice.org-voikko release was 3.1.2-4.

Here are the rpmlint warnings:

libreoffice-voikko.i686: W: spelling-error Summary(en_US) hyphenator -> hyphenation, hyphenated, hyphenate
libreoffice-voikko.i686: E: binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/extensions/voikko.uno.pkg/voikko.so ['$ORIGIN']

libreoffice-voikko.src:12: W: macro-in-comment %{version}
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 2 errors, 4 warnings.

It is my understanding that the rpath is necessary. I could try confirming this from a LibreOffice package maintainer.

Comment 1 Susi Lehtola 2011-09-18 18:25:08 UTC
Since you seem to be actually compiling something, you need to build it in %build, and install in %install.

Comment 2 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2011-09-18 20:34:12 UTC
New SRPM: http://vpv.fedorapeople.org/packages/libreoffice-voikko-3.2-2.fc16.src.rpm

- Build in the build section, install in the install section
- Add the _isa macro to all dependencies
- Update libvoikko dependencies to >= 3.0

I need to source %{libo_sdk}/setsdkenv_unix.sh in both %build and %install because the Makefile uses environment variables which get defined by that shell script.

Comment 3 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2011-09-18 20:59:04 UTC
I just noticed that the BuildRequires are broken, libo_version isn't used as a macro. I'll fix this soon, until then, please don't review this package.

Comment 4 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2011-09-25 15:50:16 UTC
New SRPM: http://vpv.fedorapeople.org/packages/libreoffice-voikko-3.2-3.fc15.src.rpm

The package should be good for review now.

Comment 6 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2011-09-25 18:36:28 UTC
The extra -O switch comes from the file /usr/lib64/libreoffice/basis3.4/sdk/settings/settings.mk which is included by libreoffice-voikko's Makefile. The full options that it passes are:

CC_FLAGS=-c -fpic -fvisibility=hidden

I think the best way to solve this for now would be to pass "CC_FLAGS=-c -fpic -fvisibility=hidden" to the build in the spec file and maybe report a LibreOffice bug.

The rpath comes from the same file:
LIBRARY_LINK_FLAGS=-shared '-Wl,-rpath,$$ORIGIN'

I found the original review by Caolan and from reading this comment, I think the $ORIGIN rpath is necessary: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=429550#c4

Comment 7 Susi Lehtola 2011-09-25 18:55:25 UTC
Very well. Please override CC_FLAGS in the spec file and file a bug against LibreOffice, IMHO the default CC_FLAGS should be set to %{optflags}.

The current provides and obsoletes are in order. Please ask the libreoffice people about the real necessity of the rpath.

However, I can't see any blockers so I declare this review


Please continue by requesting branches, and follow the instructions at
for openoffice.org-voikko for F16 and rawhide.

Comment 8 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2011-09-26 14:01:25 UTC
About the rpath, Caolan answered my email and he said "I think its necessary in the general case, in case
an extension includes a pile of libraries which link to each-other." However, libreoffice-voikko is just one .so file. I'll try to remove the rpath and see if libreoffice-voikko works without it.

Comment 9 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2011-10-02 19:08:59 UTC
New SRPM: http://vpv.fedorapeople.org/packages/libreoffice-voikko-3.2-4.fc16.src.rpm

I've removed the rpath and overridden CC_FLAGS to drop the extra -O switch. The extension works fine without the rpath. I'll ask the LibreOffice maintainers' opinion on whether to put this package into F16 too or just into rawhide.

Comment 10 Susi Lehtola 2011-10-02 19:21:03 UTC
.. but this is just a rename, isn't it?

IMHO you can put it straight away in F16.

(In reply to comment #10)

It's also a version bump, though not that significant. The openoffice.org-voikko package is in the comps group for Finnish and also required by LO's Finnish language package. Thus, it gets installed by default at least when you do a Finnish DVD or network install. This makes the rename a bit more risky at this stage of the F16 process. Caolán recommended that I put this package into Rawhide first and see if any dependencies break. If not, then it'd be safer to put it into F16.

Git done (by process-git-requests).

Comment 14 Ville-Pekka Vainio 2011-11-21 21:12:13 UTC
I have retired openoffice.org-voikko in devel and I've also posted a rel-eng ticket about it: https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/4978 . The ticket has not been answered, but I'll close this bug anyway.
