Description Rich Mattes 2012-06-06 04:04:53 UTC
Spec URL: http://rmattes.fedorapeople.org/rospackages/vcstools/python-vcstools.spec
SRPM URL: http://rmattes.fedorapeople.org/rospackages/vcstools/python-vcstools-0.1.17-1.fc17.src.rpm

Description: The vcstools module provides a Python API for interacting with different version control systems (VCS/SCMs). The VcsClient class provides an API 
for seamless interacting with Git, Mercurial (Hg), Bzr and SVN. The focus of the API is manipulating on-disk checkouts of source-controlled trees. Its main use is to support the rosinstall tool.

Comment 1 Ralph Bean 2012-06-07 00:58:57 UTC
I'll take this one.

Comment 2 Ralph Bean 2012-06-07 02:17:00 UTC
** MUST **

Do you intend to support EPEL5?  If not the "rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT" at the beginning of %install is unnecessary and should be removed.

Is there a reason you're not using the pypi distributed tarball?  http://pypi.python.org/pypi/vcstools

If you intend to use the hg snapshot over the pypi distribution for a deliberate reason, you should indicate the hg changeset hash in the version number.

** SHOULD **

Please notify upstream and ask them to include the full text of the license with their distribution; I couldn't find it in the source tree.  Once they include it, it should be included in the %doc macro.j

Comment 3 Rich Mattes 2012-06-07 02:59:38 UTC
Updated spec and srpm:

Spec URL: http://rmattes.fedorapeople.org/rospackages/vcstools/python-vcstools.spec
SRPM URL: http://rmattes.fedorapeople.org/rospackages/vcstools/python-vcstools-0.1.17-2.20120606hg6205f4fc.fc17.src.rpm

I don't intend to support epel5 with this package, so I've removed the rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT from install.

The pypi tarball doesn't contain any of the sphinx documentation (html and man).  I'd prefer to include the api documentation and manpages, so I'm grabbing the hg tags that correspond to the releases posted to pypi.  I've amended the package release and checkout comments to include the checkout date and hg hash as per the post-release snapshot examples at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:NamingGuidelines#Snapshot_packages

I have filed a ticket upstream requesting that they include a LICENSE file with their source distributions at http://kforge.ros.org/vcstools/trac/ticket/51

Comment 4 Ralph Bean 2012-06-07 16:03:52 UTC

One last thing I noticed is that there Okay.  One last thing I noticed is that
there are unit tests but you do not run them in the spec file.  That is a nice
plus.  If you care to do it, please do so.
