Locale::Maketext::Lexicon provides lexicon-handling backends for
Locale::Maketext to read from other localization formats, such as PO files,
MO files, or from databases via the "Tie" interface.

Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2005-09-16 15:00:02 UTC

- rpmlint clean
- package and spec naming OK
- package meets guidelines
- license is same as perl, matches spec, not in separate file
- spec file written in English and is legible
- sources match upstream
- package builds OK on FC4 and in mock for rawhide (i386)
- no explicit BR's
- no locales, libraries, subpackages or pkgconfigs to worry about
- not relocatable
- no directory ownership or permissions issues
- no duplicate files
- %clean section present and correct
- macro usage is consistent
- code, not content
- no large docs
- docs don't affect runtime
- no desktop file needed
- no scriptlets
- provides-filtering script is necessary (provided)


- URL for Source0 doesn't work: s/www/search/
- Does CVS preserve exec permissions on source files? If not, then
  %define __perl_provides %{SOURCE1}
  won't work reliably out of CVS because %{SOURCE1} may not have exec
  permission. I'd advocate adding:
  chmod 755 %{SOURCE1}
  to the end of %prep as a safeguard

Grumble ... I somehow screwed my template.

> - Does CVS preserve exec permissions on source files?
It does - Actually, not taking this into account during check-in into CVS is a
fairly common mistake in using CVS (Changing permissions requires admin
intervention on the files inside of CVS).

But I am not sure about the side-effects of cvs-import :)

> Approved.

New Package SCM Request

The Fedora maintainer (Ralf Corsepius, corsepiu) does not support EPEL7.
