YAZ is a programmersâ toolkit supporting the development of Z39.50/SRW/SRU clients and servers. Z39.50-2003 (version 3) as well as SRW/SRU version 1.1 are supported in both the client and server roles.

Comment 1 John Mahowald 2006-02-25 23:00:02 UTC
Build failed, devel x86_64

checking for working tcpd.h... no
configure: error: tcpd development libraries missing

Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2006-06-14 14:19:29 UTC
Adding back my comment that was lost in the crash:

------- Additional Comments From  2006-06-10 16:44 EST -------
icon, are you still interested in packaging this?  I have to say, the
description is terribly non-descriptive.  Even the upstream website doesn't
fother to say what Z39.50 is.  Perhaps adding the following (cribbed from
wikipedia) would help a bit:

Z39.50 is a client server protocol for searching and retrieving information from
remote computer databases.

This does, however, properly build in mock (x86_64, development).  If icon is
still interested and updates to the current version (2.1.20), I could go ahead
with a review of this.

BTW, this package has rpath problems on x86_64.  This seems to be fixed by the
usual technique of addingg BR: libtool and then adding LIBTOOL=/usr/bin/libtool
on the make line.  I have no idea if this breaks anything.  There seems to be an
included test suite but no %check section in the spec.

Comment 3 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2006-06-14 15:31:08 UTC
Yep, I'm still alive. I'll take a look at it briefly.

Comment 4 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2006-06-20 19:31:38 UTC

Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2006-06-21 04:02:51 UTC
Builds fine in mock (x86_64, development) and rpmlint is quiet.

* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is correct.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  License text included in package.
* source files match upstream:
   2d401ea471a87e7a056ea2df9e2d9d14  yaz-2.1.22.tar.gz
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* package builds in mock (x86_64, development).
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:

   libyaz = 2.1.22-1.fc6

   libyaz-devel = 2.1.22-1.fc6
   libyaz = 2.1.22-1.fc6
   yaz = 2.1.22-1.fc6

* shared libraries are present; ldconfig is called and unversioned .so files are
in the -devel package.
* package is not relocatable.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* %check is present and all tests pass:
   All 21 tests passed
* scriptlets present and OK (ldconfig calls)
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* headers present in -devel package.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no libtool .la droppings.
* not a GUI app.


Comment 6 Jason Tibbitts 2006-07-07 16:44:13 UTC
This package has been in the repo for a couple of weeks now; any reason this bug
hasn't been closed?

Comment 7 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2006-07-07 21:50:18 UTC
Just lack of attention. :) Closing, thanks.
