Description Taylor Braun-Jones 2014-12-23 22:06:51 UTC
Spec URL:

This is one of the newer Qt "add-ons" modules (like qt5-qtserialport). Official module description:

The QtWebSockets module implements the WebSocket protocol as specified in RFC 6455. It solely depends on Qt (no external dependencies).

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2014-12-27 01:01:54 UTC
Initial comments:

1. License tag NOT ok.

License: LGPLv21, LGPLv3, or GPLv2
is invalid.

I'd suggest the following which matches what is currently used in other qt5 packages:

# See also
License: LGPLv2 with exceptions or GPLv3 with exceptions

2.  Please document (preferably in a .spec comment) why static libs are needed,
BuildRequires:  qt5-qtbase-static >= %{version}

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2014-12-27 01:26:57 UTC
The "# define to build docs, need to undef this for bootstrapping" comment above the "docs" boolean is incorrect and redundant for this package. This package is not required to build the qtdoc toolchain, and thus there is no need to bootstrap without docs. The only reason one would want to disable docs here at all is to save build time.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2014-12-31 21:48:20 UTC
scratch build:

sources: ok
0c406bca48296d0d99cc93b00f40aca7  qtwebsockets-opensource-src-5.4.0.tar.xz

naming: ok

macros: ok

scriptlets: ok

The rest looks fairly clean and simple.  Please fix items 1,2 from comment #1, and it looks like we have a winner.

Comment 4 Taylor Braun-Jones 2014-12-31 22:48:03 UTC
(1) There are several inconsistencies in the licensing information that ships with the qtwebsockets package so I've filed a bug to get it sorted out:

I'll follow up with an updated spec once that bug gets sorted out. I'll also use the new URL for the 'see also' reference:

(2) qt5-qtbase-static is not actually a build dependencies so it has been removed.

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2015-01-01 02:53:17 UTC
The missing file is in qt5-qtbase (probably a side effect of monolithic vs. separate module tarballs).  I wouldn't consider it a review blocker, the licensing intent here is fairly consistent and clear.

Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2015-02-20 22:04:38 UTC
