Description Luke Macken 2006-12-15 05:32:32 UTC
Spec URL:
TurboMail is a TurboGears extension, meaning that it starts up and shuts down
alongside any TurboGears applications you write, in the same way that visit
tracking and identity do. TurboMail uses built-in Python modules for SMTP
communication and MIME e-mail creation, but greatly simplifies these tasks by
performing the grunt-work for you. Additionally, TurboMail is multi-threaded,
allowing for single or batch enqueueing and background delivery of mail.

Comment 1 José Matos 2006-12-15 09:26:38 UTC
The spec looks really clean, just one small comment (nitpicking :-):

If the package is noarch why do you need to set the CFLAGS? :-)

No need to change the spec because of this detail you do it when importing.

The full review will follow soon.

Comment 2 José Matos 2006-12-15 23:11:12 UTC
Building fails in mock because the spec file is missing 
BuildRequires:  python-setuptools

Comment 3 José Matos 2006-12-15 23:16:05 UTC
OK, better yet, make that
BuildRequires:   TurboGears

since the installation requires it to be present.

Comment 4 José Matos 2006-12-15 23:53:09 UTC
Assuming that my previous suggestion is followed this is the revision:

Review for release 1:
* RPM name is OK
* Source TurboMail-2.0.3.tar.gz is the same as upstream
* Builds fine in mock
* rpmlint looks OK
* File list looks OK
* License is correct (MIT) and OK for Fedora
* Spec is clear and well written

Needs work:
* The package should contain the text of the license
  (wiki: Packaging/ReviewGuidelines)

  superfuluous CFLAGS when building.
  BR TurboGears

If you merge these two changes the package is APPROVED. You can do the changes 
when importing.

After the building of this package do not forget to close this bug as 

Comment 5 Luke Macken 2006-12-16 20:43:02 UTC

* Fri Dec 15 2006 Luke Macken <lmacken> 2.0.3-2
