Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-06-26 03:18:11 UTC
Not an official review as I'm not yet sponsored
Mock build for development i386 is suceesfull with some warnings
+ /usr/bin/python build
/usr/lib/python2.4/distutils/ UserWarning: Unknown distribution
option: 'zip_safe'
/usr/lib/python2.4/distutils/ UserWarning: Unknown distribution
option: 'install_requires'

MUST Items:
     - MUST: rpmlint shows no error on i386
     - MUST: dist tag is present
     - MUST: The package is named according to the Package Naming Guidelines.
     - MUST: The spec file name matching the base package vobject, in the
format vobject.spec
      - MUST: This package meets the Packaging Guidelines.
      - MUST: The package is licensed with an open-source compatible license
Apache Software License.
      - MUST: The License field in the package vobject.spec file did not match
any file in tarball.
      - MUST: The sources used to build the package matches the upstream source,
as provided in the spec URL. md5sum is correct.
      - MUST: This package owns all directories that it creates. 
      - MUST: This package did not contain any duplicate files in the %files
      - MUST: This package  have a %clean section, which contains rm -rf
      - MUST: This package used macros.
      - MUST: Document files are included like README.txt

      * Source URL is present and working.
      * BuildRoot is correct BuildRoot:       
%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
      * BuildRequires is correct

What you Need:-
      * You dont need to have 
Requires:       python-abi = %(%{__python} -c "import sys ; print sys.version[:3]")
       as this is only for rpms targetting for FC3 or prior.
       * Add License file in tarball if you can alter the tarball contents.

Comment 2 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-06-26 14:11:04 UTC
The package should probably be named python-vobject as well.

Comment 3 James Bowes 2006-06-26 17:22:02 UTC
Updated locations:
Spec URL:

Thanks for the feedback, guys!

* Renamed the package to python-vobject
* Removed the python-abi requires
* Removed the unused python-sitearch macro
* Removed some comments left over from the template

I didn't add in the license file, since the released version does not package it
in the tarball. However, the current sources in svn do have a LICENSE file, so
it should be in the next release.

Comment 4 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2006-06-27 03:25:55 UTC
APPROVED, based upon the review by Parag AN and the updated package.  For
furture reference, please bump the release each time you update the package.
