Description Patrice Dumas 2006-10-11 15:28:20 UTC
Spec URL:

This module can be used to find directories and files as specified by the
XDG Base Directory Specification. It takes care of defaults and uses
File::Spec to make the output platform specific.

Looks like the dependencies are a bit messed up.

Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2006-10-14 20:43:23 UTC
I put perl-File-DesktopEntry in a local repo so I could get through this faster.

* source files match upstream:
  00e2729f364d430350355250cb9007e0  File-BaseDir-0.02.tar.gz
* 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 not included upstream.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   perl(File::BaseDir) = 0.02
   perl-File-BaseDir = 0.02-1.fc6
* %check is present and all tests pass:
   All tests successful.
   Files=1, Tests=5,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.01 cusr +  0.02 csys =  0.03 CPU)
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* 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.

I'd like to see this in EPEL6.  I can maintain it there if needed.
