Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-08-12 18:45:14 UTC
Spec URL:


File::HomeDir is a module for dealing with issues relating to the
location of directories for various purposes that are "owned" by a
user, and to solve these problems consistently across a wide variety
of platforms.

Comment 1 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-08-12 18:49:24 UTC
This module is new requirement of perl-AppConfig (version 1.63).

Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2006-08-13 03:01:58 UTC
Boring easy Perl module review follows:

* source files match upstream:
   295ee8b4f580bea5fa5714cdf8ac965b  File-HomeDir-0.58.tar.gz
* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is correct.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  License text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   perl(File::HomeDir) = 0.58
   perl(File::HomeDir::Darwin) = 0.58
   perl(File::HomeDir::MacOS9) = 0.58
   perl(File::HomeDir::Unix) = 0.58
   perl(File::HomeDir::Windows) = 0.58
   perl-File-HomeDir = 0.58-1.fc6
   perl >= 0:5.005
* %check is present and all tests pass:
   All tests successful, 4 subtests skipped.
   Files=3, Tests=35,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.10 cusr +  0.04 csys =  0.14 CPU)
  (the skipped dests are meaningless except on Windows)
* package is not relocatable.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no libtool .la droppings.
