Description Matěj Cepl 2007-01-25 16:04:18 UTC
Spec URL:
gst-pulse is a GStreamer 0.10 plugin for the PulseAudio sound server.

Comment 1 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2007-01-25 16:33:45 UTC
I'll have a review in a bit, but perhaps this package would be better named
gstreamer-plugins-pulse?  That would match better with other gstreamer plugins
(except gnonlin AFAIK).

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2007-01-25 17:39:09 UTC
I agree that gstreamer-plugins-pulse would be a better package name.

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-01-25 18:15:57 UTC
Well, it is ONE plugin, but I have changed the name anyway, new URLs are

Comment 4 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2007-01-25 18:47:59 UTC
Here are a few things to fix, and then I'll do the full review:

* Remove the .la files in %install
* Add --disable-static to the %configure command to not build and
  package static library
* Need to add "gstreamer-plugins-base-devel" as a build requirement.
* Release field should be "2{%?dist}".

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-01-25 23:48:26 UTC
I independently made exactly the same changes to the spec file, and after adding
--disable-static, rpmlint is happy.

Comment 6 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2007-01-26 01:15:15 UTC
Please post the updated spec/srpm so that I can finish the review...

Comment 8 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2007-01-27 06:13:58 UTC
* source files match upstream

$ md5sum gst-pulse-0.9.4.tar.gz*
7c60018e8b9ce7f62c7078bee5851f07  gst-pulse-0.9.4.tar.gz
7c60018e8b9ce7f62c7078bee5851f07  gst-pulse-0.9.4.tar.gz.1

$ sha1sum gst-pulse-0.9.4.tar.gz*
6f8fd58d3f3a17e4c5e2c8b59d4ab06453082240  gst-pulse-0.9.4.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 included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* compiler flags are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (fc6, i386)
* package installs properly. 
! rpmlint says:

E: gstreamer-plugins-pulse script-without-shebang

Either specify a mode ("install -m 644 -p") or use "cp" to get the
file into the build directory.

E: gstreamer-plugins-pulse description-line-too-long gstreamer-plugins-pulse is
a GStreamer 0.10 plugin for the PulseAudio sound server.
E: gstreamer-plugins-pulse description-line-too-long gstreamer-plugins-pulse is
a GStreamer 0.10 plugin for the PulseAudio sound server.

I don't think that it's necessary to have the name of the package in
the description, I'd get rid of it.

* %check is not present; There is no test code in the districution.
* no shared libraries are present
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets
* 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 unversioned .so file
* no pkconfig file
* no libtool .la droppings.
* Final requirements are:  
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1

* The final provides are:  
gstreamer-plugins-pulse = 0.9.4-3.fc6

The rpmlint errors are minor, you can fix them up after importing (but
before issuing a build please).  This package is APPROVED.

Comment 10 Kevin Fenzi 2008-04-22 17:01:38 UTC
I assume you meant gstreamer-plugins-pulse for the package here, not "foobar".

cvs done.
