OK - Spec in American English
OK - Spec is legible.
OK - Sources match upstream md5sum:
ea50419f99472200c4184a304e3831ea  nmap-4.20.tar.bz2
ea50419f99472200c4184a304e3831ea  nmap-4.20.tar.bz2.1
OK - BuildRequires correct
See below - Package has %defattr and permissions on files is good.
OK - Package has a correct %clean section.
See below - Package has correct buildroot
OK - Package is code or permissible content.
OK - Packages %doc files don't affect runtime.
OK - Package compiles and builds on at least one arch.
OK - Package has no duplicate files in %files.
OK - Package doesn't own any directories other packages own.
OK - Package owns all the directories it creates.
See below - No rpmlint output.
OK - final provides and requires are sane:


OK - Should build in mock.
OK - Should build on all supported archs
OK - Should function as described.
OK - Should have dist tag
OK - Should package latest version
0 bugs - check for outstanding bugs on package.

1. Not sure if this is a blocker, but the standard format for defattr
now is:


People I've talked to have had the opinion that it's a "should."

2. The recommended BuildRoot is:

%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

3. rpmlint says:

rpmlint on nmap-4.20-2.fc7.src.rpm
W: nmap mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 56, tab: line 62)
W: nmap patch-not-applied Patch1: makefile.patch
W: nmap patch-not-applied Patch0: inet_aton.patch

The first one is easy enough to fix if you want to change the multiple
spaces on lines 56-59 to tabs; I don't believe it's a blocker, though.
I don't believe the other two are, either, but if you're done with the
patches... :-)

Also, I had a couple other concerns about the package.  First off, see:

I've successfully tested the package with this change:

-%makeinstall nmapdatadir=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_datadir}/nmap
+make install nmapdatadir=%{_datadir}/nmap DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT

Secondly, there's a pretty major mistake in nmap-4.20-nostrip.patch.  As
I said in an email to Florian La Roche (who, as far as I can tell, added
that patch):

--- snip ---
 In your effort to remove -s's from install lines, you also made this
effective change:

-$(SHTOOL) mkln -f -s $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/nmapfe $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/xnmap
+$(SHTOOL) mkln -f $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/nmapfe $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/xnmap

 Which has this annoying effect on the build:

ln: `nmapfe': hard link not allowed for directory
RPM build errors:
    File not found: /var/tmp/nmap-root/usr/bin/xnmap

 I'm pretty sure that's not what you meant to do. :-)
 I fixed the patch in my local copy and threw it against my buildsys and it
worked fine.  Just thought I'd let you know.
--- snip ---

So, please, add the -s back to the `mkln` part of that line.  The build
fails otherwise. :-P

In closing, if you could address the above issues, I think nmap should  
be cleared for merging.

Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2007-03-23 13:44:41 UTC
please check nmap-4.20-3.fc7

Comment 3 Jima 2007-03-23 14:59:30 UTC
(4.20-4.fc7 is in CVS, actually...)

1. Not fixed, but it's not (AFAIK) a blocker.

2. Fixed, thanks.  (It's a blocker now, too.)

3. Fixed (rpmlint on SRPM is now silent), thanks.

4. `make install`-y line looks better and appears to work fine.

5. nmap-4.20-nostrip.patch fixed.

A couple (minor) problems creeped in, however.

1. Versions in %changelog shouldn't have %{?dist} on the end; see the last point
in this section:

Totally logical mistake, I fully admit. :-)

2. We now have an rpmlint warning on the binary package:

W: nmap incoherent-version-in-changelog 4.20-4 2:4.20-4.fc7

This is due to Karsten Hopp's changelog entry -- it should have contained the
Epoch used (as you and Florian have been doing).

In a totally random comment, in running `rpmdiff` on the RPMs produced by your
changes (against ones from before), it seems you may have fixed a bug that I
hadn't noticed.  It looks like before your 1.35 CVS change to nmap.spec, nmap
was using its own libpcap.  Your BR change from libpcap to libpcap-devel fixed
that, and added a dependency on libpcap.  This, in my opinion, is a very good
thing -- thanks.

Fix the new 1 and 2, and I think nmap's good to go.

Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2007-03-23 15:58:27 UTC
Doh.. still forgot to fix old no.1 .. 

Besides please check nmap-4.20-5.fc7

Comment 5 Jima 2007-03-23 19:44:15 UTC
It finally propogated to the public CVS. :-)

Changelog entries are happy now!

Also, on my last glance at the package, I noticed this (in %package frontend):

Requires: nmap = %{epoch}:%{version}

I'm not sure, but maybe that should be %{epoch}:%{version}-%{release} ?  Not a
huge deal, and I doubt it's a blocker, but it seems like it might be good form. :-)

That and the %defattr are the only things that (slightly) annoy me, so I think
we can call nmap APPROVED for merging.  Thanks!
