Description: Enhanced SASL Error Logger for Riak

The main feature of this error logger is the ability to handle sanely really large dumps of Erlang VM. Although it was originally designed for Riak it could be used as a replacement of the default error logger in other projects as well.

Comment 1 Martin Gieseking 2011-01-29 12:48:49 UTC
Hi Peter,

as far as I see, version 1.0.0 of riak_err hasn't been officially released yet. So this is a snapshot package that should follow

Everything else looks fine.

$ rpmlint /var/lib/mock/fedora-14-x86_64/result/*.rpm
erlang-riak_err.src: W: invalid-url Source0: basho-riak_err-riak_err-1.0.0-0-g429f757.tar.gz
erlang-riak_err.x86_64: E: /var/lib/mock/fedora-14-x86_64/result/ erlang-stdlib
erlang-riak_err.x86_64: E: no-binary
erlang-riak_err.x86_64: W: only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
2 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 2 errors, 2 warnings.

- explicit-lib-dependency is false positive
- no-binary is expected in pure Erlang packages
- only-non-binary-in-usr-lib is expected in pure Erlang packages
