Comment 1 Volker Fröhlich 2012-10-24 15:18:29 EDT
Use name and version macro on Source0.

Don't use macros for mkdir and install.

You might want to leave a comment, why it only works on x86_64.
Comment 2 Adrian Reber 2012-10-25 03:57:14 EDT
Thanks for the review. I have removed the macros for mkdir and install and added a comment why it only works on x86_64.

As it is not required to use macros in Source0 I would rather leave it the way it is.

Spec URL:

* Tue Aug 21 2012 Adrian Reber <> - 0.2-2
- remove macros like %%{__mkdir_p} and %%{__install}
- add comment why it is only x86_64

Review for this package:

> Spec URL:

Rpmlint is clean. Found one blocker: The package guidelines say there must me a bug mentioned in the spec file for every ExcludeArch used; that section has a lot of "MUST" and I'd say it can be expected to apply to ExclusiveArch, too. So I'd say: file one bug and mention it in the spec file, that should be sufficient. 

A few nit-picks: 

- I wonder if the summary would benefit from a "Tool for "
- Explaining what CRIU actually means in the description would be wise, too
- would be good if upstream would include a install section in the Makefile and could fix the stack-protector problem
Comment 5 Adrian Reber 2013-01-18 08:14:04 EST
Thanks for the review.

Concerning the ExcludeArch: Without the package being imported I cannot file a bug. Reading it seems okay to open the bug after importing the package once a bugzilla entry has been created. I will do that as soon as the package has passed review.

I changed the Summary and Description and will contact upstream about the install section and the stack-protector problem.

Spec URL:

* Fri Jan 18 2013 Adrian Reber <> - 0.3-2
- improved Summary and Description
Comment 6 Thorsten Leemhuis 2013-01-18 08:24:16 EST
In that case: APPROVED
