Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-10-16 05:29:25 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
Description: The purpose of the F2PY --Fortran to Python interface generator-- project is to provide connection between Python and Fortran languages. F2PY is a Python extension tool for creating Python C/API modules from (handwritten or F2PY generated) signature files (or directly from Fortran sources).

Comment 1 Ed Hill 2005-10-16 15:53:53 UTC
Hi Ignacio, the above SRPM builds on FC4 but rpmlint throws up a dozen errors 
of the form:

  E: f2py non-executable-script \
     /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/f2py2e/ 0644

If those files really should be executable (and I think they should be, 
right?) then could you please post an updated SRPM?

Comment 2 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-10-16 16:19:23 UTC
Strictly speaking files under /usr/lib/pythonX.Y/site-packages aren't required
to be executable. rpmlint is just keying on the shebang line and figuring
something is wrong from that. The 2 "devel-file-in-non-devel-package" messages
may also be red herrings but I need to look deeper into it.

Comment 3 Ed Hill 2005-10-20 16:13:59 UTC
Hi Ignacio, thanks for explaining why rpmlint is wrong.  So 
with that out of the way, the package looks good except for the two
"devel-file-in-non-devel-package" warnings are you mentioned:

 + spec looks good
 + code not content
 + source matches upstream
 + license is OK (and not included since it does not appear in 
    the upstream tarball -- good)
 + builds in mock on FC4 and appears to work correctly on FC4

I think its OK ship the package as-is.  And if you or someone else 
can point out a better location for the two fortranobject.[ch] files, 
then thats something that can be changed once its in CVS.


Comment 4 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-10-21 15:37:12 UTC
Built for FC4 and devel.
