Missing BuildReq: mesa-libGL-devel

Please check:
qt5-qtwebkit-debuginfo.x86_64: W: spurious-executable-perm /usr/src/debug/qtwebkit-opensource-src-5.0.1/Source/WTF/wtf/MediaTime.h
qt5-qtwebkit-debuginfo.x86_64: W: hidden-file-or-dir /usr/src/debug/qtwebkit-opensource-src-5.0.1/Source/WTF/.moc
qt5-qtwebkit-debuginfo.x86_64: W: hidden-file-or-dir /usr/src/debug/qtwebkit-opensource-src-5.0.1/Source/WTF/.moc

This doesn't look very nice. Something we can do about it?

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2013-02-26 14:44:51 UTC
1. Missing BuildReq: mesa-libGL-devel
as mentioned in the qttools review, I'll be adding this as a dep to qt5-qtbase-devel soon

Comment 4 Ismael Olea 2013-04-10 20:31:22 UTC
As with qt5-qttools I'm getting an «Project ERROR: Module does not define version.» error when building (using mock here).

Just reporting.

scratch build:

Comment 6 Gregor Tätzner 2013-04-12 06:53:15 UTC
doesn't build on rawhide. I get a build log of 65 mb containing messages like this: generated/InspectorTypeBuilder.h:3180:25: warning: typedef 'dummycannot_cast' locally defined but not used [-Wunused-local-typedefs]
             COMPILE_ASSERT(sizeof(Error) == sizeof(InspectorObject), cannot_cast);

There is also this configure warning: Encountered 1 configuration warning(s):
 ! QtQuick module not found, QML APIs will not be built

I suppose we don't want to waive on any of them.

Comment 7 Gregor Tätzner 2013-04-12 06:54:46 UTC
oh wait, I think my build run out of space. Need to try later again...

Oh yes, adding qtdeclarative to buildreq did the trick, though I'm getting unpackaged file errors now ;)

Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2013-04-12 16:18:23 UTC
Good catch, I'll add the optional builddep and feature in the next pkg iteration.

In the meantime, I'd prefer if we could focus on review blockers... ;)

Can no longer do a scratch build, due to qt5-qtdeclarative not being available yet.

compact licensecheck


- this project contains multiple licenses (see check), also include the license files, if available, in doc

- many subdirectories below Source/ contain licenses and changelogs, I'm sure they could be of interest

also there is some heavy bundling taking place:

Source/ThirdParty bundles - surprise - quite a lot of third party libs that are actively used during build.

- ANGLE: fedora pkg 'mingw64-angleproject'
- glu: has been adjusted by webkit team, probably copylib
- gtest: we don't run tests, so....
- gyp: fedora pkg 'node-gyp'
- jquery/qunit: probably can ignore this too

This needs to be investigated.

Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2013-05-14 18:19:52 UTC
Of those, it would appear that only ThirdParty/ANGLE is actively used during the build.

Taking a closer look now.

Comment 13 Rex Dieter 2013-05-14 18:25:43 UTC
As far as licensing is concerned, upstream intentions here is clear:

Comment 14 Rex Dieter 2013-05-14 18:43:09 UTC
and, pretty sure we don't need angle.  per
The goal of ANGLE is to allow Windows users to seamlessly run WebGL and other OpenGL ES 2.0 content by translating OpenGL ES 2.0 API calls to DirectX 9 API calls.

Looks like we're left with just

and per

is fairly clear to be a copylib.  I'll poke fpc about it.

Comment 15 Rex Dieter 2013-05-14 18:59:58 UTC
mt19937ar.c copylib request:

Comment 16 Rex Dieter 2013-05-14 19:05:51 UTC
And, grr, ANGLE actually is used, reading further down on it's project page, makes it clearer why:

Portions of the ANGLE shader compiler are used as a shader validator and translator by WebGL implementations across multiple platforms. It is used on Mac OS X, Linux, and in mobile variants of the browsers. Having one shader validator helps to ensure that a consistent set of GLSL ES shaders are accepted across browsers and platforms. The shader translator can be used to translate shaders to other shading languages, and to optionally apply shader modifications to work around bugs or quirks in the native graphics drivers. The translator targets Desktop GLSL, Direct3D HLSL, and even ESSL for native GLES2 platforms.

Comment 17 Rex Dieter 2013-05-15 17:54:43 UTC
OK, after banging against angle a bit, I found bug #858084 (mingw-qt5-qtwebkit review), and looks like unbundling angle may not be possible.

ah I see, can you open a fpc ticket for angle too?

Comment 19 Rex Dieter 2013-05-18 14:04:54 UTC
as far as mt19937ar.c, turns out that code isn't used on linux either, but oh well.

angle bundling exception submitted,

ping?  it's been almost 2 weeks since my last update, you still interested in completing this review?

Created attachment 760028 [details]

sorry for the late response. lets try to finish this

whats left:
- some (internal?) libs are defining rpaths
- unspecific license tag: actually most of the code is LGPL and BSD; I've also spotted some apache, MIT, ISC and MPL files (see licensecheck). Since this is basically a copy of webkit I also don't think the qt license terms do really apply here ("# See also")
- include ChangeLog and VERSION (there is no license file, is it?)

thanks for your effort

Re: licensing

$ licensecheck -r * | cut -d' ' -f2 | sort | uniq -c

      7 Apache
   9097 BSD
      3 BSL
      6 GPL

      3 zlib/libpng

Of these, zlib is only used in configure tests, and only MPL is GPL incompatible (but ok, since all the MPL licensed files are also dual licensed GPL/LGPL).

There are a small handful of Qt-standard licensed files.  So... when all is said and done, the combined aggregate license still comes back to what we started with.

Working on the other items now...
