Description Al Pacifico 2006-10-21 01:38:58 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: This class implements a priority queue using C, with an XS interface supplied.

Priority queues are basically lists of arbitrary things that allow items to
be inserted arbitrarily but that return them in a particular order. The order
they are returned in is determined by each item's priority.

Priorities may represent anything, as long as they are numbers and represent
an order from smallest to largest. Items with the same priority are entered
into a queue in FIFO order. That is, items at the same priority are dequeued
in the order they achieved a that priority.

POE uses priority queues to store and sequence its events. Queue items are
events, and their priorities are the UNIX epoch times they are due.

N.B.: This is my first package submission and I am looking for a sponsor.

Comment 1 Chris Weyl 2006-10-24 19:12:03 UTC
Your three packages look clean and to follow guidelines; based on this and our
off-bz emails I'll be happy to sponsor you in extras.

Formal reviews to follow.

Comment 2 Chris Weyl 2006-10-25 03:47:05 UTC
There are redundant requires: lines in the spec.  This causes one require to
be duplicated, and in any case the dependency is correctly picked up by rpm's
auto prov/deps scripts.  The requires: lines should be dropped.

The %files section has a line:

This should be changed to %{perl_vendorarch}/POE, otherwise the package will
not own the directories under correctly.  Changing it to that will
cause it to own POE/, POE/XS/, etc, etc...

This one isn't a blocker, but I notice the presence of two benchmarking
scripts in the package (bench[12].perl).  I usually try to include things like
this in %doc, as it may be useful to someone down the road.  Note that if you
do include these, you'll need to replace the #! line in bench2.perl so rpmlint
doesn't complain, e.g. via something like:
    perl -pi -e 's|^#!perl|#!/usr/bin/perl|m' bench2.perl

Drop the requires, modify the line in %files, and optionally add the
benchmarking scripts and the package is approved.

Anything going on here?
