Description Brendan Jones 2012-02-10 16:48:05 UTC
aeolus is a synthesized (i.e. not sampled) pipe organ emulator that 
should be good enough to make an organist enjoy playing it. It is a 
software synthesizer optimized for this job, with possibly hundreds 
of controls for each stop, that enable the user to "voice" his 
instrument. Main features of the default instrument: three manuals and 
one pedal, five different temperaments, variable tuning, IDI control 
of course, stereo, surround or Ambisonics output, flexible audio 
controls including a large church reverb.

Comment 1 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2012-03-18 18:09:59 UTC

[+] OK
[-] NA
[?] Issue

[+] Package meets naming and packaging guidelines

[+] Spec file matches base package name.

[+] Spec has consistant macro usage.

[?] Meets Packaging Guidelines.
 + Needs to be looked at again once the current issues are corrected.

[?] License
 + There is no licence information at all in the "stops" tar. How does one know what license the content is under?

[?] License field in spec matches
 + Shouldn't the license be GPLv2+ (the plus?) and  the license of the "stops" content? All the source files appear to be GPLv2+, not just GPLv2.

[+] License file included in package
 + No license included in the stops tar

[+] Spec in American English
[+] Spec is legible.

[+] Sources match upstream md5sum:
[ankur@ankur SPECS]$ md5sum aeolus-0.8.4.tar.bz2 stops-0.3.0.tar.bz2 ../SOURCES/aeolus-0.8.4.tar.bz2 ../SOURCES/stops-0.3.0.tar.bz2

[ankur@ankur SPECS]$

- Package needs ExcludeArch

[?] BuildRequires correct
 + Fails to build in mock:

DEBUG: tiface.cc:24:31: fatal error: readline/readline.h: No such file or directory.

You are missing a BR. Probably one of the following:
[root@ankur ~]# repoquery '*/readline/readline.h' -f

- Spec handles locales/find_lang
- Package is relocatable and has a reason to be.

[+] Package has %defattr and permissions on files is good.

[?] Package is code or permissible content.
 + Need to confirm contents of the stop tar.

- Doc subpackage needed/used.
[+] Packages %doc files don't affect runtime.

- Headers/static libs in -devel subpackage.
- Spec has needed ldconfig in post and postun
- .pc files in -devel subpackage/requires pkgconfig
- .so files in -devel subpackage.
- -devel package Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}
- .la files are removed.

[+] Package is a GUI app and has a .desktop file

[?] Package compiles and builds on at least one arch.
 + Fails to build on a mock fedora-rawhide-x86_64 configuration.

The following will be checked once the package builds correctly :)

- Package has no duplicate files in %files.

- Package doesn't own any directories other packages own.
- Package owns all the directories it creates.
- No rpmlint output.
- final provides and requires are sane:
(include output of for i in *rpm; do echo $i; rpm -qp --provides $i; echo =; rpm -qp --requires $i; echo; done
manually indented after checking each line.  I also remove the rpmlib junk and anything provided by glibc.)


- Should build in mock.
- Should build on all supported archs
- Should function as described.
- Should have sane scriptlets.
- Should have subpackages require base package with fully versioned depend.
- Should have dist tag
- Should package latest version
- check for outstanding bugs on package. (For core merge reviews)



1. Package does not build
2. Licensing missing for the stops data
3. I see you've added a Requires: %{name}-stops there. What is that for? Did you forget to make a %{name}-stops subpackage in the spec? 

There may be more issues, but we'll look at them once the above are solved.


Comment 2 Ankur Sinha (FranciscoD) 2012-03-18 18:11:11 UTC
The license files have incorrect FSF addresses too. Please request upstream to correct this in the next release of the software.

Sorry for the delay - very busy at the moment

I can't change the COPYING file  - the shared lib exit is OK - its a private library (even though I sonamed it because its in the ldconfig path).

Hi Brendan,

Could you please upload the srpm again? I can't seem to find it on your fedorapeople space. Sorry for the delay.

Warm regards,
