Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-07-19 13:41:42 UTC
1) I will suggest this pacakge to follow current packaging guidelines and remove 
buildroot, %clean section and cleaning of build root in %install

2) See

I think we should remove provides and Obsoletes now. I can't find old packages built on koji.

3) also good to preserve timestamps when using install commands.

4) rpmlint on SRPM and RPM reports

Created attachment 432892 [details]

I have tried to cleanup spec and here is patch which will fix above issues. Just need to add Changelog entry. and Fix permission for file mkxauth

Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-07-19 13:50:16 UTC
Looks koji build is successful with new changes.

Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-08-02 15:06:34 UTC
sandmann ping

Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-08-09 04:53:17 UTC
sandmann ping    
ajax ping

Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-08-11 04:20:34 UTC
After repetitive pings on bz and IRC to sandmann and ajax, looking into discussion happened in yesterday's FESCo meeting where X/Desktop team members almost shown un-willingness to fix this review, I am pushing back this to NEW queue.

Comment 7 Adam Jackson 2010-08-30 20:11:57 UTC
Mostly addressed in F15.  The explicit provides are not removed though, all the X collection packages provide their binaries explicitly so people don't need to rely on a particular package providing them.

Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-08-31 01:36:44 UTC
Looks no one yet officially reviewed this package. Not sure if recent approvals from FESCo allows to close the reviews without any reviewer reviewing changes.

So, I am re-opening this.

Comment 9 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-09-01 10:49:43 UTC
I think generally maintainer should provide koji build link for final review.

Comment 10 Parag AN(पराग) 2010-09-03 05:18:31 UTC
Thanks Ajax for the updated build. This package is reviewed now as requested changes are partially committed.

I see that rpmlint still showing
xorg-x11-xauth.x86_64: E: zero-length /usr/share/doc/xorg-x11-xauth-1.0.2/AUTHORS
xorg-x11-xauth.x86_64: E: zero-length /usr/share/doc/xorg-x11-xauth-1.0.2/README
xorg-x11-xauth.x86_64: E: zero-length /usr/share/doc/xorg-x11-xauth-1.0.2/NEWS

but zero-length files are harmless.

Closing this now.
