I'll do the review and sponsorship process...
Comment 2 Stanislav Ochotnicky 2013-08-08 09:08:21 EDT
Package looks OK for the most part. Licensing is good (there are a few files under different licenses but they don't get into binary RPM so BSD is correct). 

Perhaps the only suggestion I have now before starting full-scale review: It might be nice to package tools/*rnc as samples and tools/*vim as vim plugin.

Vim plugin would require patching as it uses /usr/local directory for default configuration lookup and wouldn't work since we have no default configuration shipped. On the other hand shipping and installing that arx.conf into /etc might make sense. And then let vim plugin use that (it would be possible to override with a variable though...so maybe something that could be added and provided upstream)
Comment 3 Christopher Meng 2013-08-08 22:08:18 EDT

1. %{_mandir}/man1/rnv.1.gz

You'd better change to:


Easy, but it will help RPM auto generate gzipped manpages.

2. valid in respect to the language defined by the Relax  NG  schema.  RNV

Spaces too many, suggestion:

valid in respect to the language defined by the Relax NG schema. RNV
Comment 4 Michael Simacek 2013-08-14 09:19:09 EDT
I patched rnv, arx and build to install arx.conf into /etc/rnv and modified conf lookup so it can find it. I created subpackages for python and perl examples and for the vim plugin. I also created man pages for previously undocumented executables. I added dependency to docbook schemas, because arx is configured to use it, but doesn't ship it.

Comment 5 Christopher Meng 2013-08-15 04:56:48 EDT

Are these .1 files sent to upstream already?

and one "question"

%package vimplugin

do we need to change to 

%package vim?(I'm sorry I don't know other vim plugins' situation in Fedora)
Comment 6 Michael Schwendt 2013-08-15 06:21:40 EDT
IMO, it should be vim-rnv following the %parent-%child naming guidelines for add-on packages


which we are supposed to put to good use. Also notice this related thread I've opened recently: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/packaging/2013-August/009422.html
Comment 7 Michael Simacek 2013-08-15 09:14:45 EDT
Thank you for the feedback.
I renamed the vimplugin subackage to vim-rnv.
And yes, I already sent those manpages to upstream.

Package Review

[x] = Pass, [!] = Fail, [-] = Not applicable, [?] = Not evaluated
[ ] = Manual review needed

First a list of issues I've noticed:
  - vim-rnv references file /usr/local/share/rng-c/arx.conf
  - vim-rnv should require main package
  - I would not put the examples in separate subpackage since they are pretty
    small. Just mark them as %doc IMO (but it's up to you). if you leave them in
    subpackage then it has to require main package (due to dir ownership and rnv
  - It's usually better idea to patch .am file and re-run autotools than to
    patch generated files
  - it's customary to group package descriptions/definitions before %prep
    section at the top and files sections just before changelog. There's no
    strict rule about this though

===== MUST items =====

[x]: Package contains no static executables.

[!]: Package complies to the Packaging Guidelines
[x]: License field in the package spec file matches the actual license.
[!]: License file installed when any subpackage combination is installed.

if examples stayed as separate package without requiring main package they would

[x]: Macros in Summary, %description expandable at SRPM build time.
[x]: Package does not contain duplicates in %files.
[x]: Permissions on files are set properly.
[x]: If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the license(s)
     in its own file, then that file, containing the text of the license(s)
     for the package is included in %doc.
[x]: Package use %makeinstall only when make install' ' DESTDIR=... doesn't
[x]: Package is named using only allowed ASCII characters.
[x]: No %config files under /usr.
[x]: Package do not use a name that already exist
[x]: Package is not relocatable.

[?]: Package should compile and build into binary rpms on all supported
[-]: %check is present and all tests pass.

Thank you,
I corrected the .vim file, removed the examples subpackage and use autoreconf instead of patching Makefile.in.

Package looks good to me now-> APPROVED

I'll sponsor you to packager group and you should be able to start building by the time you get repos.
