Fedora Merge Review: mtools
Initial Owner:

Comment 1 Ed Hill 2007-02-03 20:22:16 UTC
Hi there, here's a quick review:

 + source matches upstream
 + license is OK and correctly included (GPL)
 + specfile is legible and looks good
 + dir ownership and permissions look good
 + has %clean and "rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT"
 + pot/preun scriptlets look good
 + dir ownership and perms OK

 - please see the rpmlint output at:
   which lists a few items that need attention

 - please use the preferred BuildRoot:
%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

Ed, are you going to review mtools, please?

Yes, I'll do it this weekend!

Comment 8 Cole Robinson 2015-02-11 20:38:02 UTC
Mass reassigning all merge reviews to their component. For more details, see this FESCO ticket:

If you don't know what merge reviews are about, please see:

How to handle this bug is left to the discretion of the package maintainer.

Comment 9 Ondrej Oprala 2015-02-12 08:18:38 UTC
Since Ed's review +'s still hold true and rpmlint's pretty happy apart from 3 bogus dates, I consider this issue resolved.

Comment 10 Parag AN(पराग) 2015-02-12 09:25:58 UTC
Few additional things you can improve in spec like we have following tags now optional and can be removed safely

1) Group:
2) Buildroot:
3) in %install no need of
4) %clean section
5) %defattr(-,root,root)

Then we have macro for /etc which is %{_sysconfdir}

Every patch used should provide information in comment above to that patch line like why patch is needed and if it is upstream or not?

Please look and see if you can avoid using %makeinstall
