but those were changed to not depend on it.

It is blocked by FE-LEGAL because it contains several data
files that upstream lost track of original authors. Note
that this is result of upstream doing a complete audit of
its sources. These data files (test cases input) are mostly
very simple, and licensecheck does not trigger them due to
the "non standard" file extension.

Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-01-13 16:25:31 UTC
Well, without even looking at this, the obvious question is:

Since these files are test-case input, can you simply remove the license unclear data files and disable those test cases?

Comment 3 Paulo Andrade 2013-01-13 17:24:09 UTC
  All of the files have no license information, and %check is
disabled in all of the coin-or-* review requests.
  I was not even going to open this review request, but changed
my mind :-) Depending on how things go, I can change the spec
in the other review requests to "BuildRequires: coin-or-Sample",
this for the sake of running %check, and possibly triggering
some bad build in the future or in another arch.

Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2013-01-14 20:01:37 UTC
After consulting with Red Hat Legal, since these files only contain mathematical formulas, it is safe to treat them as being in the Public Domain.

Mark this package as:

License: Public Domain

Lifting FE-Legal.

Comment 6 Jerry James 2013-01-15 16:58:19 UTC
I will review this package.  If bug 872020 isn't too complicated, I'd love to have it reviewed.  It is the last external numeric polymake tool with a license that allows it into Fedora that isn't already in Fedora.  And I'm *this close* to having a workable polymake package...

Paulo, I maintain the csdp package, which is from coin-or.  I don't think it is involved in the suite of packages you are working on, but if I happen to be wrong about that, let me know.

Comment 7 Paulo Andrade 2013-01-15 17:09:00 UTC
What I did at first is to package the contents of the CoinAll
monolithic package, as upstream suggested to make a package
for every component instead of a splitting from the all in
one tarball.
It should not hurt to have it provide coin-or-Csdp to match the
pattern I am using (again, as suggested by upstream), but right
now there is no direct dependency from the set of coin-or
packages I made review requests.

Comment 8 Jerry James 2013-01-15 17:38:40 UTC
Issues, in no particular order:
1. The summary is, I think, unhelpful.  Consider making the summary contain
   the same text as the description.
2. As rpmlint notes, this noarch package uses the %{_libdir} macro.
   That doesn't really make sense: the whole point of a noarch package is that
   it can be installed on *any* arch.  So are the contents of the package
   going to be installed into /usr/lib or /usr/lib64?  It has to be the same
   on every system.

   For this package, it is probably better to put the pkgconfig file in
   %{_datadir}/pkgconfig instead.  You can probably just use sed or perl to
   change the definition of pkgconfiglibdir in Makefile.in to be
   $(datadir)/pkgconfig.  (I haven't actually tried that.)
3. Rpmlint also complains about the pkgconfig file not being in -devel.  Since
   this package is intended to be used only for testing other packages, it
   essentially is a -devel package, so we can ignore that.
4. It might be a good idea to capture part of comment 4 into a file to be
   included in %doc as the equivalent of a COPYING file.

Comment 9 Paulo Andrade 2013-01-16 00:36:37 UTC
I can rename add a coin-or-Sample-devel subpackage, and make
coin-or-Sample a package with no files. It does not propagate
much because only coin-or-CoinUtils-devel requires coin-or-Sample,
but I think in this case better to ignore the rpmlint warning.

Good catch in the pkgconfig in libdir.


- Add a more descriptive summary (#894610#c8)
- Install pkgconfig files to noarch directory (#894610#c8)
- Install a COPYING file to justify Public Domain license (#894610#c8)

Comment 10 Jerry James 2013-01-16 18:11:43 UTC
Two more things to fix.  First, make the bug summary match the new summary in the spec file.  I've had problems at git creation time when those didn't match.  Second, change "cp %{SOURCE1} ." to "cp -p %{SOURCE1} ." to preserve the timestamp on COPYING.

Just do that before importing into git.  This package is APPROVED.

Comment 11 Paulo Andrade 2013-01-16 19:11:54 UTC
For the sake of correctness, did the suggested changes before
asking for scm.

- Preserve timestamp of COPYING (#894610#c10)
