Description Mark McKinstry 2011-01-25 03:52:04 UTC
fpdns is a program that remotely determines DNS server versions. It does this 
by sending a series of borderline DNS queries which are compared against a 
table of responses and server versions.

$ rpmlint fpdns-0.9.3-1.fc14.noarch.rpm 
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
$ rpmlint fpdns-0.9.3-1.fc14.src.rpm

Comment 1 Frank Crawford 2011-02-13 09:47:17 UTC
A package review.

+ - Ok.
- - Error.
+/- - It item acceptable, but I strongly recommend enhancement.
= - N/A.

MUST Requirements:

[+] MUST: rpmlint must be run on every package

$ rpmlint *.rpm *.spec
1 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

Note: rpmlint sometimes reports HTTP Error 404: Not Found, but appears to be an rpmlint issue, not a package issue.

[+] MUST: The package must be named according to the Package Naming Guidelines
[+] MUST: The spec file name must match the base package %{name} [...]
[+] MUST: The package must meet the Packaging Guidelines
[+] MUST: The package must be licensed with a Fedora approved license
          and meet the Licensing Guidelines

License is New BSD (no advertising, 3 clause)

[+] MUST: The License field in the package spec file must match the
          actual license
[+] MUST: If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the 
          license(s) in its own file, then that file, containing the text of 
         the license(s) for the package must be included in %doc
[+] MUST: The spec file must be written in American English.
[+] MUST: The spec file for the package MUST be legible.
[+] MUST: The sources used to build the package must match the upstream 
          source, as provided in the spec URL. Reviewers should use md5sum for 
          this task. If no upstream URL can be specified for this package, 
          please see the Source URL Guidelines for how to deal with this.

$ md5sum SRC/Net-DNS-Fingerprint-0.9.3.tar.gz RPM/Net-DNS-Fingerprint-0.9.3.tar.gz 
16f1fbc9e5c8b935a0a48a509dc58899  SRC/Net-DNS-Fingerprint-0.9.3.tar.gz
16f1fbc9e5c8b935a0a48a509dc58899  RPM/Net-DNS-Fingerprint-0.9.3.tar.gz

[+] MUST: The package MUST successfully compile and build into binary 
         rpms on at least one primary architecture

[=] MUST: If the package does not successfully compile, build or work on 
          an architecture, then those architectures should be listed in the 
          spec in ExcludeArch. Each architecture listed in ExcludeArch MUST 
          have a bug filed in bugzilla, describing the reason that the package 
          does not compile/build/work on that architecture. The bug number MUST 
          be placed in a comment, next to the corresponding ExcludeArch line
[+] MUST: All build dependencies must be listed in BuildRequires, except 
          for any that are listed in the exceptions section of the Packaging 
          Guidelines ; inclusion of those as BuildRequires is optional. Apply 
          common sense.
[=] MUST: The spec file MUST handle locales properly. This is done by 
          using the %find_lang macro. Using %{_datadir}/locale/* is strictly 
[=] MUST: Every binary RPM package (or subpackage) which stores shared 
          library files (not just symlinks) in any of the dynamic linker's 
          default paths, must call ldconfig in %post and %postun.
[=] MUST: If the package is designed to be relocatable, the packager must 
          state this fact in the request for review, along with the 
          rationalization for relocation of that specific package. Without 
          this, use of Prefix: /usr is considered a blocker.
[+] MUST: A package must own all directories that it creates. If it does 
          not create a directory that it uses, then it should require a package 
          which does create that directory.
[+] MUST: A package must not contain any duplicate files in the %files 
[+] MUST: Permissions on files must be set properly. Executables should 
          be set with executable permissions, for example. Every %files section 
          must include a %defattr(...) line.
[+] MUST: Each package must have a %clean section, which contains rm -rf
          %{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).

Not required for F-13 and above, but is contained in spec file.

[+] MUST: Each package must consistently use macros.
[+] MUST: The package must contain code, or permissable content.
[=] MUST: Large documentation files must go in a -doc subpackage. (The 
          definition of large is left up to the packager's best judgement, but 
          is not restricted to size. Large can refer to either size or 
[+] MUST: If a package includes something as %doc, it must not affect the 
          runtime of the application. To summarize: If it is in %doc, the 
          program must run properly if it is not present.
[=] MUST: Header files must be in a -devel package.
[=] MUST: Static libraries must be in a -static package.
[=] MUST: Packages containing pkgconfig(.pc) files must 'Requires: 
          pkgconfig' (for directory ownership and usability).
[=] MUST: If a package contains library files with a suffix (e.g. 
, then library files that end in .so (without suffix) 
          must go in a -devel package.
[=] MUST: In the vast majority of cases, devel packages must require the 
          base package using a fully versioned dependency: Requires: %{name} =
[+] MUST: Packages must NOT contain any .la libtool archives, these must 
          be removed in the spec if they are built.
[=] MUST: Packages containing GUI applications must include a
          %{name}.desktop file, and that file must be properly installed with 
          desktop-file-install in the %install section. If you feel that your 
          packaged GUI application does not need a .desktop file, you must put 
          a comment in the spec file with your explanation.
[+] MUST: Packages must not own files or directories already owned by 
          other packages. The rule of thumb here is that the first package to 
          be installed should own the files or directories that other packages 
          may rely upon. This means, for example, that no package in Fedora 
          should ever share ownership with any of the files or directories 
          owned by the filesystem or man package. If you feel that you have a 
          good reason to own a file or directory that another package owns, 
          then please present that at package review time.
[+] MUST: At the beginning of %install, each package MUST run rm -rf
          %{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).

Only required for EPEL, but is contained in spec file.

[+] MUST: All filenames in rpm packages must be valid UTF-8.

SHOULD Requirements:

[=] SHOULD: If the source package does not include license text(s) as a
        separate file from upstream, the packager  query upstream t
        include it.
[+/-] SHOULD: The description and summary sections in the package spec file
        should contain translations for supported Non-English languages, if

Summary and Description only in English, although no other languages are given upstream.

[+] SHOULD: The reviewer should test that the package builds in mock.
[+] SHOULD: The package should compile and build into binary rpms on all
         supported architectures.

[+] SHOULD: The reviewer should test that the package functions as
         described. A package should not segfault instead of running, for
[=] SHOULD: If scriptlets are used, those scriptlets must be sane. This is
         vague, and left up to the reviewers judgement to determine sanity.
[=] SHOULD: Usually, subpackages other than devel should require the base
         package using a fully versioned dependency.
[=] SHOULD: The placement of pkgconfig(.pc) files depends on their
         usecase, and this is usually for development purposes, so should be
         placed in a -devel pkg. A reasonable exception is that the main pkg
         itself is a devel tool not installed in a user runtime, e.g. gcc or
[=] SHOULD: If the package has file dependencies outside of /etc, /bin,
         /sbin, /usr/bin, or /usr/sbin consider requiring the package which
         provides the file instead of the file itself.
[+] SHOULD: your package should contain man pages for binaries/scripts. If
         it doesn't, work with upstream to add them where they make sense.[34]
