Description Nobody's working on this, feel free to take it 2007-01-31 18:32:15 UTC
Fedora Merge Review: ekiga
Initial Owner:

Comment 1 Deji Akingunola 2007-04-14 17:03:59 UTC
* Package name conforms to the Fedora Naming Guidelines
* Source, Group and License tags properly in place
* Locales handled correctly
* All necessary BuildRequires listed.
* Package builds OK in Mock.
* Source matches upstream
md5sum: ec43c03ad942f87fb1d5cbcec5153b64  ekiga-2.0.7.tar.gz

* rpmlint have the following complaints
$ rpmlint ekiga-2.0.7-2.fc7.src.rpm
W: ekiga prereq-use scrollkeeper
W: ekiga unversioned-explicit-obsoletes gnomemeeting
W: ekiga macro-in-%changelog post
$ rpmlint ekiga-2.0.7-2.fc7.x86_64.rpm
W: ekiga incoherent-version-in-changelog 2.0.7-1 2.0.7-2.fc7
E: ekiga obsolete-not-provided gnomemeeting
W: ekiga non-conffile-in-etc /etc/gconf/schemas/ekiga.schemas
W: ekiga one-line-command-in-%postun scrollkeeper-update

There are also warnings as below in the build log;
Processing files: ekiga-2.0.7-2.fc7
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/omf/ekiga/ekiga-C.omf
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/omf/ekiga/ekiga-bg.omf
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/omf/ekiga/ekiga-de.omf
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/omf/ekiga/ekiga-es.omf
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/omf/ekiga/ekiga-fr.omf
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/omf/ekiga/ekiga-pt_BR.omf
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/omf/ekiga/ekiga-sv.omf
warning: File listed twice: /usr/share/omf/ekiga/ekiga-uk.omf

It is sufficient to just have %{_datadir}/omf/ekiga without 
%{_datadir}/omf/ekiga/*.omf in the files manifest

BTW: There's a 2.0.9 release on the source ftp.

Comment 2 Deji Akingunola 2008-01-20 22:43:41 UTC
Though the package owner seemed to have ignored the review, a recent commit
shows some of the issues last raised here have been addressed. However, it the
Gconf and scrollkeeper scriplets doesn't seem to follow the guidelines at ; the gconf scriplet especially
doesn't have/call the pre and preun requires. 

Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2008-07-18 14:16:01 UTC
Also to note is that it shouldn't have explicit requires as they should be
generated automatically

So these can go:
Requires: pwlib >= 1.10.10
Requires: opal >= 2.2.11
Requires: GConf2 >= 1.2.1
Requires: libgnomeui >= 2.0
Requires: libgnome >= 2.0
Requires: avahi >= 0.6.9
Requires: avahi-glib >= 0.6.9

And probably this one as well (I think building against e-d-s will automatically
require the package):
Requires: evolution-data-server

But you need to explicitly include a requires for dbus:
Requires: dbus

I'll attach a patch for the spec file that cleans up that plus a few other small

Also the *omf and help files are picked up by the " -f ekiga.lang" directive on
the %files so don't need to explicitly be in the files manifest, this is also
fixed in the patch.

Comment 5 Peter Robinson 2008-10-02 09:42:31 UTC
Hi Deji,

Can you re-review based on the current ekiga 3 build in rawhide.

Comment 6 Deji Akingunola 2008-10-09 12:18:44 UTC
Hi Peter,

I think I can just continue from where I left it off.

* Is there any particular reason you're not following, I think the Gconf scriplet (and scrollkeeper too) needs more work (comment #2).
* rpmlint still gives warnings. They are mostly ignorable, but I think the handling of obsoleted gnomemeeting should follow the guildlines at ;
[deji@agape Download]$ rpmlint ekiga-3.0.0-4.fc10.src.rpm 
ekiga.src:37: W: unversioned-explicit-obsoletes gnomemeeting
ekiga.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 71, tab: line 1)
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 2 warnings.
[deji@agape Download]$ rpmlint ekiga-3.0.0-4.fc10.x86_64.rpm 
ekiga.x86_64: W: non-conffile-in-etc /etc/gconf/schemas/ekiga.schemas
ekiga.x86_64: W: obsolete-not-provided gnomemeeting

Comment 7 Peter Robinson 2008-10-09 18:42:18 UTC
What is the policy on how long the obsolete needs to be provided. ekiga has been in Fedora replacing gnomemeeting since FC5. Given that the oldest supported release is F-8 and soon to be F-9 I think its probably time to drop the obsolete.

Comment 9 Peter Robinson 2008-10-09 20:43:19 UTC
OK. I've updated the spec for I think everything mentioned. I've also added script sections for updating the icon cache as I think it should be there as well. The spec is in cvs and I've done a scratch build (links below) as I wanted someone to check the script changes before I push it to rawhide. It works fine for me though.

Comment 10 Deji Akingunola 2008-10-10 04:18:33 UTC
The spec is O.K now. rpmlint only produces 1 warning, about a cosmetic mix of spaces and tabs.

Comment 11 Peter Robinson 2008-10-10 09:06:10 UTC
Thanks! Build pushed to rawhide. The opal library that ekiga depends on needs a merge review as well if you have the time.
