Description Christopher Stone 2007-01-15 02:12:30 UTC
Spec URL:

This package is based on the libradius of FreeBSD, with some modifications
and extensions.  This PECL provides full support for RADIUS authentication
(RFC 2865) and RADIUS accounting (RFC 2866), works on Unix and on Windows.
Its an easy way to authenticate your users against the user-database of your
OS (for example against Windows Active-Directory via IAS).

Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2007-02-13 18:49:25 UTC
I wanted to take a quick look at this package, but it seems that is unavailable at the moment.

Comment 2 Christopher Stone 2007-02-13 20:45:07 UTC
Unfortunately not the most reliable server.   Seems to be back up now.

Comment 3 Remi Collet 2007-03-10 15:45:00 UTC
What about using the new provides to ensure ABI compatibility with PHP

For example
%if %{?php_zend_api}0
# for fedora >= 6
Requires:     php(zend-abi) = %{php_zend_api}
Requires:     php(api) = %{php_core_api}
# for fedora <= 5
Requires:     php-api = %{php_apiver}

Comment 4 Remi Collet 2007-03-11 07:20:00 UTC
As for php-pear packages, php-pecl tarball have a package.xml outside any
directory. So, you must use

%setup -c -q
cd radius-%{version}

Comment 5 Remi Collet 2007-03-11 13:52:46 UTC
I finally succeed to install a local radius server and to have a working test
for this extension, so, 

=== REVIEW ===
:) source files match upstream:
3d48ccb9486b9e8839d814d7ff318091  radius-1.2.4.tgz
:) package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
:( specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
=> see comment #4
:) dist tag is present.
:) build root is correct (second form).
:) license field matches the actual license.
:) license is open source-compatible (BSD).
:) latest version is being packaged (1.2.4)
:) BuildRequires are proper.
:) %clean is present.
:) package builds in mock (FC6).
:) package installs properly
:) rpmlint is silent.
:) final provides are sane:
config(php-pecl-radius) = 1.2.4-1.fc7
php-pecl(radius) = 1.2.4-1.fc7  
php-pecl-radius = 1.2.4-1.fc7
:/ final Requires are sane:
=> see comment # 3
:) %check is not present; 
:) owns the directories it creates
:) no duplicates in %files.
:) file permissions are appropriate.
:) no scriplet
:) code, not content.
:) documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
:) %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.

Don't know if "release" is need in virtual provide 'php-pecl(radius)' ? 
perl and php-pear virtual provide never used it.

Should : comment #3
Must: comment #4

Comment 6 Christopher Stone 2007-03-11 21:29:02 UTC
Indeed, my php-pecl-xdebug package will also need to be fixed.  Thanks for
spotting this.
