I'll take this

Comment 2 Jonathan Dieter 2017-04-14 10:41:21 UTC
At first glance, a couple of things:

Why are you using the ISC+ license tag?  It's not recognized in Fedora, and I would think using the ISC tag would be the right fit.

Also, can you please justify your patch as required by

Comment 3 greg.hellings 2017-04-15 04:22:10 UTC
Oops, I've corrected the license line and added a comment about where the patch file comes from.

[!]: 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 is included in %license.

     Technically this is passed because the source code doesn't include the
     license, but upstream has since added the file LICENSE to git.  After
     I think that we should include the upstream git version.  Alternatively,
     it might make more sense to just package the latest git snapshot since
     the package doesn't seem to see a lot of changes

     %check is present, but it seems to be telling me that no tests were run
     From build.log:
     + /usr/bin/python3 test

Comment 5 greg.hellings 2017-04-19 16:16:51 UTC
Hmm, yeah. The tests aren't run through the normal mechanism. I've updated that to run them directly, included README.txt, and bumped the release version. I've also reached out to the upstream maintainer to see about getting a 0.1.1 release, or if they'd allow me to execute that release. I'll either move forward with a 0.1.1 release or package git if I don't hear back in a day or two. I'll upload new files at that time.

Comment 6 greg.hellings 2017-04-21 14:28:28 UTC
OK, upstream did release a 0.1.1 which includes all the necessary fixes, if I use the original source tarball from GitHub.


Comment 7 Jonathan Dieter 2017-04-22 09:08:55 UTC
You're still missing the %license tag, but other than that, everything looks great.  Once you add the %license, this package is APPROVED!

Comment 8 Gwyn Ciesla 2017-05-01 14:12:37 UTC
Package request has been approved:

Comment 9 Jonathan Dieter 2017-05-01 14:27:45 UTC
Once this gets built in Rawhide and F26, I'll go ahead and start on #1441843
