The path-is-inside package will give you a robust, cross-platform way of detecting whether a given path is inside another path.

This is a requisite package for the NPM 1.4.x branch.

Comment 1 Ian Firns 2014-05-15 13:14:11 UTC
In order to demonstrate knowledge, I have performed another informal self-review IAW the Review Guidelines [1] last updated 2013-02-14.

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


None identified.

===== MUST =====

[x]:  rpmlint must be run on the source rpm and all binary rpms the build
      produces. The output should be posted in the review.

      Note: There is rpmlint output and is attached at bottom. rpmlint was
      run on both src.rpm and the noarch.rpm packages.

[x]:  The package must be named according to the Package Naming Guidelines.

[x]:  The spec file name must match the base package %{name}, in the format
      %{name}.spec unless your package has an exemption.

[x]:  The package must meet the Packaging Guidelines.

[x]:  The package must be licensed with a Fedora approved license and meet the
      Licensing Guidelines.

[x]:  The License field in the package spec file must match the actual license.

[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 must be included in %doc.

[x]:  The spec file must be written in American English.

[x]:  The spec file for the package MUST be legible.

[x]:  The sources used to build the package must match the upstream source, as
      provided in the spec URL. Reviewers should use sha256sum for this task as
      it is used by the sources file once imported into git. If no upstream URL
      can be specified for this package, please see the Source URL Guidelines
      for how to deal with this.

[x]:  The package MUST successfully compile and build into binary rpms on at
      least one primary architecture.

[-]:  If the package does not successfully compile, build or work on an
      architecture, then those architectures should be listed in the spec in
      ExcludeArch. Each architecture listed in ExcludeArch MUST have a bug filed
      in bugzilla, describing the reason that the package does not
      compile/build/work on that architecture. The bug number MUST be placed in
      a comment, next to the corresponding ExcludeArch line.

[x]:  All build dependencies must be listed in BuildRequires, except for any
      that are listed in the exceptions section of the Packaging Guidelines ;
      inclusion of those as BuildRequires is optional. Apply common sense.

[-]:  The spec file MUST handle locales properly. This is done by using the
      %find_lang macro. Using %{_datadir}/locale/* is strictly forbidden.

[-]:  Every binary RPM package (or subpackage) which stores shared library files
      (not just symlinks) in any of the dynamic linker's default paths, must
      call ldconfig in %post and %postun.

[x]:  Packages must NOT bundle copies of system libraries.

[-]:  If the package is designed to be relocatable, the packager must state this
      fact in the request for review, along with the rationalization for
      relocation of that specific package. Without this, use of Prefix: /usr is
      considered a blocker.

[x]:  A package must own all directories that it creates. If it does not create
      a directory that it uses, then it should require a package which does
      create that directory.

[x]:  A Fedora package must not list a file more than once in the spec file's
      %files listings. (Notable exception: license texts in specific

[x]:  Permissions on files must be set properly. Executables should be set with
      executable permissions, for example.

[x]:  Each package must consistently use macros.

[x]:  The package must contain code, or permissable content.

[-]:  Large documentation files must go in a -doc subpackage. (The definition of
      large is left up to the packager's best judgement, but is not restricted
      to size. Large can refer to either size or quantity).

[x]:  If a package includes something as %doc, it must not affect the runtime of
      the application. To summarize: If it is in %doc, the program must run
      properly if it is not present.

[-]:  Static libraries must be in a -static package.

[-]:  Development files must be in a -devel package.

[-]:  In the vast majority of cases, devel packages must require the base
      package using a fully versioned dependency: Requires: %{name}%{?_isa} =

[-]:  Packages must NOT contain any .la libtool archives, these must be removed
      in the spec if they are built.

[-]:  Packages containing GUI applications must include a %{name}.desktop file,
      and that file must be properly installed with desktop-file-install in the
      %install section. If you feel that your packaged GUI application does not
      %need a .desktop file, you must put a comment in the spec file with your

[x]:  Packages must not own files or directories already owned by other
      packages. The rule of thumb here is that the first package to be installed
      should own the files or directories that other packages may rely upon.
      This means, for example, that no package in Fedora should ever share
      ownership with any of the files or directories owned by the filesystem or
      man package. If you feel that you have a good reason to own a file or
      directory that another package owns, then please present that at package
      review time.

[x]:  All filenames in rpm packages must be valid UTF-8.

===== SHOULD =====

[-]:  If the source package does not include license text(s) as a separate file
      from upstream, the packager [ ] query upstream to include it.

[-]:  The description and summary sections in the package spec file should
      contain translations for supported Non-English languages, if available

[x]:  The reviewer should test that the package builds in mock.

[x]:  The package should compile and build into binary rpms on all supported

      Note: built on 32-bit and 64-bit x86 only.

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

[-]:  If scriptlets are used, those scriptlets must be sane. This is vague, and
      left up to the reviewers judgement to determine sanity.

[-]:  Usually, subpackages other than devel should require the base package
      using a fully versioned dependency.

[-]:  The placement of pkgconfig(.pc) files depends on their usecase, and this
      is usually for development purposes, so should be placed in a -devel pkg.
      A reasonable exception is that the main pkg itself is a devel tool not
      installed in a user runtime, e.g. gcc or gdb.

[-]:  If the package has file dependencies outside of /etc, /bin, /sbin,
      /usr/bin, or /usr/sbin consider requiring the package which provides the
      file instead of the file itself.

[-]:  Your package should contain man pages for binaries/scripts. If it doesn't,
      work with upstream to add them where they make sense.
