Description Steven Pritchard 2006-08-17 22:03:16 UTC
Spec URL:
The Sys::Virt module provides a Perl XS binding to the libvirt virtual
machine management APIs. This allows machines running within arbitrary
virtualization containers to be managed with a consistent API.

Comment 1 Chris Weyl 2006-08-18 04:13:54 UTC
The full test suite requires perl(Test::Pod::Coverage) and
perl(Test::Pod) to run; these should be buildrequires'ed.  Add these two and
I'll approve.

+ 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:
 63b776d65213df313685fc93b808b3bf  Sys-Virt-0.1.1.tar.gz
 63b776d65213df313685fc93b808b3bf  Sys-Virt-0.1.1.tar.gz.srpm
+ latest version is being packaged.
X BuildRequires are proper.
+ package builds in mock (5/x86_64).
+ rpmlint is silent.
+ final provides and requires are sane:
** perl-Sys-Virt-0.1.1-2.fc5.x86_64.rpm
== rpmlint
== provides
perl(Sys::Virt) = 0.1.1
perl-Sys-Virt = 0.1.1-2.fc5
== requires
** perl-Sys-Virt-debuginfo-0.1.1-2.fc5.x86_64.rpm
== rpmlint
== provides
perl-Sys-Virt-debuginfo = 0.1.1-2.fc5
== requires
+ no shared libraries in the system paths are present.
+ 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.
X %check is present and all tests pass:
 All tests successful.
 Files=3, Tests=7,  1 wallclock secs ( 0.28 cusr +  0.06 csys =  0.34 CPU)
+ no scriptlets 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.
+ not a web app.

Oops.  I tested a mock build, but I forgot to look at build.log.

-3 has those added.

Comment 4 Steven Pritchard 2006-08-18 20:45:22 UTC
Looks like we missed two things: 1) libvirt has an ExclusiveArch that I needed
to match, and 2) building on rawhide is broken due to a missing dependency in
libvirt-devel.  I've hopefully fixed both, andI'm testing mock builds now.

Anyway, branches have been created, so I'm going to close this bug.
