Comment 1 Jos de Kloe 2012-12-07 23:24:32 UTC
the package builds fine using mock with target rawhide as well on my side, and produces 3 rpms. The rpmlint results on these are:

>rpmlint python-elfdata-0.2-1.fc19.src.rpm
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

>rpmlint python-elfdata-0.2-1.fc19.x86_64.rpm
python-elfdata.x86_64: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/lib64/python2.7/si\
te-packages/elfdata.so 0775L
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 1 errors, 0 warnings.

>rpmlint  python-elfdata-debuginfo-0.2-1.fc19.x86_64.rpm
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

the software seems to work correct:

at the python prompt:

>>> import elfdata
>>> elfdata.get_buildid('/usr/bin/python')

gives the same buildid result as issuing
   eu-readelf -n /usr/bin/python
on the commandline.

>eu-readelf -n /usr/bin/python | tail -1
    Build ID: 581d0eca14f240d039dea75937520809a6f02cfc

My main complaint for this module is the lack of documentation.
(usage of the module may be obvious for those deeply involved into elf, but it wasn't for me). This is not directly related to the packaging, but since you are the author as well I have to mention it.

The only 3 lines of documentation in the doc string of the module
after issuing help(elfdata) on the python prompt are:

        Does some magic

adding some more documentation would make this module
much more usefull to actual users I think.

Spec URL: http://kushal.fedorapeople.org/packages/python-elfdata.spec
SRPM URL: http://kushal.fedorapeople.org/packages/python-elfdata-0.4-1.fc17.src.rpm

The documentation will be updated by next release (within next 2-3 days), this is under heavy development as we need this for darkserver project to deploy.
