Description Steven Pritchard 2005-09-18 00:12:07 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
This module converts hashes of binary octets into ASCII messages
suitable for transfer over 6-bit clean transport channels.  The
encoded ASCII resembles PGP's armoured messages, but are in no way
compatible with PGP.

Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2005-10-17 12:25:35 UTC

- rpmlint clean
- package and spec naming OK
- package meets guidelines
- license is same as perl, matches spec, text included
- spec written in English and is legible
- sources match upstream
- package builds ok in mock on FC4 (i386)
- BR's OK
- no locales, subpackages, libraries or pkgconfigs to worry about
- not relocatable
- no directory ownership or permissions issues
- no duplicate files
- %clean section present and correct
- macro usage is consistent
- code, not content
- no large docs, docs don't affect runtime
- no desktop entry needed
- no scriptlets


- "Convert binary octets into ASCII armoured messages" might be a better
  summary than "Convert::ASCII::Armour Perl module"
