Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2013-02-22 11:05:45 UTC
For this review, I've focused on:

| SHOULD: The reviewer should test that the package functions as described.
| A package should not segfault instead of running, for example.

* I've installed and configured claws-mail-plugins-bsfilter and noticed that one can crash the plugin when configuring it sloppily:

* I've built and installed bsfilter, which requires no configuration. 

* When run within Claws Mail, bsfilter is redirected to --homedir ~/.claws-mail however, whereas when running it outside Claws Mail, it defaults to ~/.bsfilter. Hence I've set a link from ~/.bsfilter to ~/.claws-mail. Just taking a note of it here, this is unrelated to the packaging. ;-)

* I've edited my procmail setup to include two recipes from "bsfilter --help" (which is sort of a full manual page, btw, rather than ordinary --help output).

With that setup, bsfilter here _works for me_ and meanwhile has started marking Spam messages.


The packaging looks sane.

In particular, license GPLv2+ matches the preamble of the bsfilter script.

The "/usr/bin/env ruby" in the script could be replaced with a hardcoded /usr/bin/ruby:
| All other code should use #!/usr/bin/ruby. 

The rpmlint W/E are commented on in the spec file already:

$ rpmlint bsfilter-1.0.18-0.2.rc4.fc.src.rpm 
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
$ rpmlint bsfilter-1.0.18-0.2.rc4.fc19.noarch.rpm 
bsfilter.noarch: E: incorrect-fsf-address /usr/bin/bsfilter
bsfilter.noarch: E: incorrect-fsf-address /usr/share/doc/bsfilter-1.0.18/COPYING
bsfilter.noarch: W: no-manual-page-for-binary bsfilter
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 2 errors, 1 warnings.

The %check section uses "|| :" and comments on it as a TODO item. Of course, this could mean that although bsfilter _seems to work_ here, some of its features may depend on stuff that also makes the few tests fail.
