Why this review request is restricted?

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2012-04-16 17:37:16 UTC
marking unrestricted

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2012-04-16 17:54:59 UTC
scratch build:

BitchX.x86_64: E: devel-dependency ncurses-devel
BitchX.x86_64: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 1.2 ['1.2-1.fc17', '1.2-1']
BitchX.x86_64: W: invalid-url URL: http://www.BitchX.org/ <urlopen error [Errno -2] Name or service not known>
BitchX.x86_64: W: spurious-executable-perm /usr/lib64/bx/help/6_Functions/open.bz
... (bazillions of these spurious-executable-perm warnings)
BitchX.x86_64: E: script-without-shebang /usr/lib64/bx/script/auto_resume
BitchX.x86_64: W: no-manual-page-for-binary BitchX-1.2c01-svn
BitchX.x86_64: W: no-manual-page-for-binary scr-bx

naming: ok

1.  MUST remove .spec tags:
Vendor: BitchX
Packager: Dan Mashal <vicodan>


2.  MUST remove seemingly erroneous
Requires: ncurses ncurses-devel openssl xmlsec1-openssl-devel
runtime shlib dependencies should get calculated automatically by rpm, no need to list these by hand.  -devel runtime deps are almost certainly wrong here too.

license: NOT ok
3.  licensecheck. reveals many sources to be GPLv2+ and many without license attribution at all.  Top level directory contains a COPYRIGHT file containing BSD licence.   Can probably infer that all files without contrary licensing details are indeed BSD.  So, you have a choice, to either use
MUST: change to License: GPLv2+
MUST: change to License: BSD and GPLv2+
depending on how pedantic you want to be.

SHOULD: poke upstream to add license attribution to all source files (or at least the .c, .h ones).  For example,
 * wserv.c - little program to be a pipe between a screen or
 * xterm window to the calling ircII process.
 * Written by Troy Rollo, Copyright 1992 Troy Rollo
 * Finished by Matthew Green, Copyright 1993 Matthew Green
 * Support for 4.4BSD by Jeremy Nelson, Copyright 1997 EPIC Software Labs
 * Works by opening up the unix domain socket that ircII bind's
 * before calling wserv, and which ircII also deleted after the
 * connection has been made.

4.  As this is a GUI app, 
MUST: add a .desktop file so it appears in DE menus
See: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Desktop_files

macros: ok

scriptlets: n/a

So, looks like we've 4 MUST fix items in need of some love and fixing before I can approve this.

Comment 6 Dan Mashal 2012-04-16 19:44:45 UTC

Please re-review. 

Per our IRC conversation this is not a GUI app. 


1) Vendora and Packager tags from spec file
2) Removed -devel requirements from spec file
3) Updated License 

Also please note at this time BitchX.org is down so I have updated the spec file to use fedorapeople.org.


Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2012-04-17 15:03:19 UTC
OK, for documentation purposes, this latest .spec has some other issues or gressed in a couple of ways:

2. still not completely fixed, still has unnecessary Requires:
5. source tarball has precompiled .o files
6. BuildRequires: compat-gcc34 added, not needed (or used) here

Comment 8 Dan Mashal 2012-04-18 08:41:48 UTC
Removed Requires: tag from spec.
Removed .o files from tarball
Removed compat-gcc34 from BuildRequires.

Please let me know if any other issues.

Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2012-04-19 11:59:44 UTC
On other thing I mentioned in irc, but not explicitly here.  Whenever making changes, please bump Release.

Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2012-04-19 12:05:07 UTC
7.  MUST %{_libdir}/bx/ dir is unowned, replace
(or equivalent)

5.  is seems not yet fixed, latest srpm I just tried,
still includes a bunch of .o files

Comment 11 Dan Mashal 2012-04-19 18:26:37 UTC
Updated spec files per your request, tarball source RPM, change log, release version.

Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2012-04-25 01:03:44 UTC
Scratch builds fail, looks like we're missing
BuildRequires: openssl-devel

after adding that, still getting an odd failure on i686:

I'll have to look deeper.

Comment 13 Dan Mashal 2012-04-26 05:59:05 UTC
Try one of these..

From the original BitchX.spec:

BuildRequires: ncurses ncurses-devel openssl xmlsec1-openssl-devel glib2-devel compat-gcc-34 compat-gcc-34-c++
Requires: ncurses openssl glibc

Comment 14 Dan Mashal 2012-04-26 06:06:35 UTC
I just built with the latest source and spec on Fedora 17 i686.


Also make sure you have the latest source (it has changed)


Comment 16 kevin_redhat 2012-04-26 06:57:15 UTC
The build failure is trying to link x86-64 .o files into a x86 build.  Note for example that wterm.o is *not* being built, so it must already have been present - was that the older .tar.gz which included some .o files? Dan seems to have fixed that.

Comment 17 Rex Dieter 2012-04-26 13:11:36 UTC
Per comment #12,

still missing
BuildRequires: openssl-devel

and fwiw, no need for 
BuildRequires: ncurses openssl

after adding the missing BuildRequires to your latest src.rpm, here's another try at a koji scratch build:

Comment 18 Rex Dieter 2012-04-26 13:14:01 UTC
ok, sans my .spec typo (BR: openssl-openssl, haha), another one:

Comment 19 Rex Dieter 2012-04-26 19:43:37 UTC
ok, I think all my MUST fix items have been resolved, let's consider this good and APPROVED.

I'll leave it to you to add
BuildRequires: openssl-devel
so that it builds ok.

next step is to request scm access,
