Description Thomas Vander Stichele 2006-11-17 10:09:01 UTC
Spec URL:
Twisted is an event-based framework for internet applications.

Conch is an SSHv2 implementation written in Python. SSH is a protocol designed
to allow remote access to shells and commands, but it is generic enough to
allow everything from TCP forwarding to generic filesystem access. Since conch
is written in Python, it interfaces well with other Python projects, such as
Imagination. Conch also includes a implementations of the telnet and vt102
protocols, as well as support for rudamentary line editing behaviors. A new
implementation of Twisted's Manhole application is also included, featuring
server-side input history and interactive syntax coloring.

1. Same comment as from the python-twisted-names review about the %{python} macro
You will be maintaining these packages so it's your call, but it doesn't
do anything useful for this fedora extras spec IMHO.

2. Might add the LICENSE and NEWS files in as %doc?

3. Needs BuildRequires: python-devel for fc7/devel.

4. rpmlint says:

E: python-twisted-conch no-binary
(which can be ignored in this case)

Comment 2 Thomas Vander Stichele 2006-12-26 14:40:07 UTC

incorporated changes suggested

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2006-12-26 20:31:29 UTC
All those changes look good... 

1 isn't really a blocker. 
2 and 3 are fixed. 
4 isn't a issue. 

I don't see any blockers, this package is APPROVED. 

Don't forget to close this review request with NEXTRELEASE once it's been
imported and built. 

Comment 4 Thomas Vander Stichele 2006-12-27 14:14:44 UTC
imported, waiting for branch to build
