Description Paul Howarth 2006-02-28 18:09:56 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:

Crypt::Random is an interface module to the /dev/random device found on most
modern unix systems. It also interfaces with egd, a user space entropy
gathering daemon, available for systems where /dev/random (or similar) devices
are not available. When Math::Pari is installed, Crypt::Random can generate
random integers of arbitrary size of a given bitsize or in a specified

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2006-04-08 03:07:31 UTC
perl-Math-Pari is stalled in review, but it doesn't look like there are any
issues (such as license) that would prevent the package from eventually being
accepted so I'll go ahead and review this.

A mock build is clean if the current perl-Math-Pari submission (2.010704-1) is
built and added to the repository.  rpmlint is silent.

* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written, uses macros consistently and
conforms to the Perl template.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  It's not included separately in the
package, but this is not necessary as the upstream tarball does not include it.
* source files match upstream:
   5730c9d5acdd698790216d354ffb0513  Crypt-Random-1.25.tar.gz
   5730c9d5acdd698790216d354ffb0513  Crypt-Random-1.25.tar.gz-srpm
* package builds in mock (with dependencies added)
* BuildRequires are proper.
* no shared libraries are present.
* package is not relocatable.
* owns the directory it creates, except for %{_bindir} which is mandated by FHS.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* no headers.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no libtool .la droppings.
* not a GUI app.
* The package owns %{perl_vendorlib}/Crypt, which will probably also be owned by
any module under the Crypt:: namespace.  However, none of the dependencies
create this directory so there is no alternative but for this package to own it.

APPROVED, subject of course to the approval of perl-Math-Pari.
