Description Luke Macken 2006-07-10 20:50:22 UTC
Spec URL:
Paster is pluggable command-line frontend, including commands to setup package
file layouts

Built-in features:

 * Creating file layouts for packages.
   For instance a setuptools-ready file layout.
 * Serving up web applications, with configuration based on paste.deploy

Comment 1 John Mahowald 2006-08-16 03:37:44 UTC

E: python-pastescript zero-length

W: python-pastescript doc-file-dependency
/usr/share/doc/python-pastescript-0.9/docs/example_cgi_app.ini /usr/bin/env
W: python-pastescript doc-file-dependency
/usr/share/doc/python-pastescript-0.9/docs/example_wsgiutils_app.ini /usr/bin/env
Many python scripts require this, ignore.

About the name, upstream does use capitals when refering to Paste Script,
however Debian also does python-pastescript, I'm inclined to follow along.

* Uses both $RPM_BUILD_ROOT and %{buildroot}. Still readable but easily fixed on
next commit.

+ builds on devel x86_64
+ uses setuptools
+ license (MIT)
+ noarch
+ sources match upstream
+ sitelib macro
+ follows python templates for macros and file listing script
+ proper %clean
+ macro usage throughout
+ file permissions and ownership

Nearly ready for approval, but let's get resolution on the naming issue. See
also python-pastedeploy, bug #198288

Comment 2 Toshio Kuratomi 2006-08-21 15:37:58 UTC
The Packaging Committee discussed this naming briefly on the fedora-packaging
mailing list and decided that it was the maintainer's discretion how to format
this portion of the package name.  Some upstream packages might name their
packages a specific way (pastescript.tar.gz or paste-scripts.tar.gz) in which
case it would be good to following upstream's lead is a good indicator.  But the
maintainer has final say as to what makes the most sense.  FWIW, Debian seems to
have adopted the same policy, with some packages with a dash
(python-twisted-conch) and others not (python-pastescript).
