Description Gregor Tätzner 2012-09-23 17:13:37 UTC
Description of problem:
currently this package contains an unstable and unsupported release. According to upstream this is not meant for production use.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Please downgrade to the latest stable release 1.9.3.

according to repoquery no package in fedora is using php-getid3. So there should be no compatibility issues.

Comment 1 Gregor Tätzner 2012-10-07 10:59:14 UTC
can you handle this situation until release of F-18?

Comment 2 Paulo Roma Cavalcanti 2012-10-07 12:19:14 UTC
The reason I used the devel version was because the package
I had in mind was ampache. However, I doubt ampache will ever be
part of Fedora...

I will prepare a downgraded version and leave it in testing for F18.

Comment 3 Paulo Roma Cavalcanti 2012-10-07 12:41:33 UTC
I have a scratch build here:


Can you try it?

Comment 4 Gregor Tätzner 2012-10-07 15:39:48 UTC
thanks, working fine. Though I have some notes and a wish:

big issue:
this line pulls in apache, you can use php-common instead
Requires:  php >= 5.0.0

also you should/must require the php extensions explicitly:

phpci print --recursive --report extension /usr/share/php/getid3/
70 / 70 [+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++>] 100.00%
BASE: /usr/share/php/getid3
  EXTENSION                                        PECL   VERSION         COUNT

  SPL                                                0.2  5.0.0              29

  exif                                                    4.0.1               1

  iconv                                                   4.0.5               1
  mysql                                              1.0  4.0.0              27
  pcre                                                    4.0.0              93
  standard                                     5.4.7-dev  4.0.0            4780
  xml                                                     4.0.0              13
  zlib                                               2.0  4.0.0               6

But I think some of them are optional (at least php-mysql)

also the fsf-address is wrong:
php-getid3.noarch: E: incorrect-fsf-address /usr/share/doc/php-getid3-1.9.3/license.txt

and my wish:
Can you include this package also in epel/el6? You won't have to adjust it.

Comment 5 Paulo Roma Cavalcanti 2012-10-07 16:30:11 UTC
From the list of extensions, almost all of them are already
in php-common. The missing ones are php-gd and php-mysql.

However, php-mysql conflicts with php-mysqlnd on my system ...
Therefore, I will not include php-mysql.

Of course I can build pgp-getid3 for rhel6, but the fsf-address issue
should not be fixed by me. Its up-stream's business, I guess ...

If this is OK for you, I will use the version below:

to a part, the wiki states:

so you are supposed to include an updated gpl2 license file, until upstream fixes this

apart from that, we are good to go :)
