Description Konstantin Ryabitsev 2007-01-30 00:05:26 UTC
Spec URL:
This is a simple PostgreSQL interface for Python which is derived
from the PyGreSQL 3.8.1 sources module. The main changes from the
PyGreSQL module are:

- support for bind parameters, alleviating the need for
  extensive, expensive and vulnerable quoting of user-supplied
- support for server side cursors for looping through large query
  results without loading up the entire result set in the client's
- returned values are translated to Python objects in the C layer,
  resulting in some speed improvement
- better DB API 2.0 compliance

Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2007-06-05 05:31:49 UTC
Hey Konstantin. Do you still wish to submit this package? 

If so, could you update to the latest version (0.9.5 seems to be the latest
upstream). Also, is the python2.3 patch needed? What versions are you targeting
with this package? 

Comment 2 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2007-06-05 14:42:50 UTC

Version 0.9.5 works with python-2.3 without the patch. I'd like to provide this
package for EL4, hence why I care about python-2.3. :)

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2007-06-06 02:37:05 UTC
ok. I would be happy to review this package... look for a full review in a few.

1. Our friend rpmlint says:
E: python-pgsql non-executable-script /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ 0644

Should this be mode 755? or more likely not have the '#!/usr/bin/env python' at
the top?

W: python-pgsql invalid-license PSF
W: python-pgsql invalid-license PSF
W: python-pgsql-debuginfo invalid-license PSF

rpmlint wants you to call this: "Python Software Foundation License"

Both of those are pretty minor. Provided you fix them before importing I will go
ahead and APPROVE this package. 

Comment 5 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2007-06-07 13:32:28 UTC
I've adjusted the license name to appease rpmlint, but removing the
"#!/usr/bin/env python" is a bit too anal, in my opinion. :) It's completely
inoffensive where it is, and just complicates the specfile needlessly. Will
request CVS bits in a moment.

Comment 6 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2007-06-07 13:36:04 UTC
New Package CVS Request
Package Name: python-pgsql
Short Description: Enhanced python interface to PostgreSQL
Branches: FC-6 F-7 EL-4 EL-5

Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2007-06-07 19:58:36 UTC
Well, the "#!/usr/bin/env python" on that script might make someone think they
can run it directly, but yes, thats a minor issue. 

cvs done.

Comment 8 Konstantin Ryabitsev 2007-06-10 13:52:39 UTC
Thanks bunches!
