Description Jeffrey C. Ollie 2005-10-14 16:01:37 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
A library that hides the complexity of using the SIP protocol for
mutlimedia session establishement. This protocol is mainly to be used
by VoIP telephony applications (endpoints or conference server) but
might be also useful for any application that wish to establish
sessions like multiplayer games.

Builds in mock on i386/devel and using plain ol' rpmbuild on x86_64/fc4.

This is my first attempt at submitting something to FE, so please be gentle :).

Comment 1 Aurelien Bompard 2005-10-16 09:28:07 UTC
* BuildRoot should be %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u}
-n) (wiki: PackagingGuidelines#BuildRoot)
* You build the doxygen documentation but you don't include it in the package.
Please add it to the -devel package (with a %doc tag).
* In the spec file, %makeinstall should be replaced by "make install
* In the files list, "%dir %{_includedir}/eXosip2" is redundant (covered by the
next line)

A few questions:
* Do you want this lib included for an application in particular ?
* Why use the prerelease version instead of the stable 1.9.0 ?

New spec/srpm with problems pointed out by Aurelien fixed:

I plan on eventually packaging OpenPBX when it is stable.  OpenPBX is a fork of
Asterisk and includes a new SIP channel that uses eXoSIP2, oSIP (already in
extras), oRTP (already in extras).  The prerelease is the one specified by the
author of the new channel.

Comment 3 Aurelien Bompard 2005-10-22 07:34:09 UTC
* BuildRoot should be %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
  (wiki: PackagingGuidelines#BuildRoot), you forgot the -n at the end.

* From /usr/include/eXosip2/eXosip.h, I would say that libeXosip2-devel
  requires libosip2-devel (it includes files from /usr/include/osipparser2/)

Comment 5 Aurelien Bompard 2005-10-24 09:10:01 UTC
Review for release 0.3.pre16:
* RPM name is OK
* Source libeXosip2-1.9.1-pre16.tar.gz is the same as upstream
* Builds fine in mock
* rpmlint of libeXosip2 looks OK
* rpmlint of libeXosip2-devel looks OK
* File list of libeXosip2 looks OK
* File list of libeXosip2-devel looks OK
* Included binary sip_reg works.

Minor nitpick: after or before install, remove the INSTALL file from the %doc
list, it's useless (since we use a package).
