Description Rafael H. Schloming 2007-02-02 17:50:33 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: The Plexus project seeks to create end-to-end developer tools for
writing applications. At the core is the container, which can be
embedded or for a full scale application server. There are many
reusable components for hibernate, form processing, jndi, i18n,
velocity, etc. Plexus also includes an application server which
is like a J2EE application server, without all the baggage.

i'll take this one.

Comment 3 Permaine Cheung 2007-03-05 16:11:49 UTC
Please fix items marked by X:
* package is named appropriately
 - match upstream tarball or project name
 - try to match previous incarnations in other distributions/packagers for
 - specfile should be %{name}.spec
 - non-numeric characters should only be used in Release (ie. cvs or
 - for non-numerics (pre-release, CVS snapshots, etc.), see
 - if case sensitivity is requested by upstream or you feel it should be
   not just lowercase, do so; otherwise, use all lower case for the name
* is it legal for Fedora to distribute this?
 - OSI-approved
 - not a kernel module
 - not shareware
 - is it covered by patents?
 - it *probably* shouldn't be an emulator
 - no binary firmware
X license field matches the actual license.
 This is MIT-Style license
* license is open source-compatible.
 - use acronyms for licences where common
* specfile name matches %{name}
X verify source and patches (md5sum matches upstream, know what the patches do)
 - the tar command in the comments will create a
plexus-bsh-factory-1.0-alpha-7-SNAPSHOT.tar.gz, but Source0 is %{name}-src.tar.gz.
 - md5sum mismatch, but diff -r shows contents are the same.
* skim the summary and description for typos, etc.
* correct buildroot
 - should be:
   %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
* if %{?dist} is used, it should be in that form (note the ? and %
X license text included in package and marked with %doc
- no license marked with %doc
* keep old changelog entries; use judgement when removing (too old?
* packages meets FHS (
X rpmlint on <this package>.srpm gives no output
W: plexus-bsh-factory non-standard-group Development/Java -this is ok
W: plexus-bsh-factory mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 9, tab: line
57) -please fix this

* changelog format is ok
* Packager tag should not be used
* Vendor tag should not be used
* Distribution tag should not be used
* use License and not Copyright
* Summary tag should not end in a period
* if possible, replace PreReq with Requires(pre) and/or Requires(post)
X specfile is legible
 - should have %define _with_gcj_support 1 at the top of the spec file, please
get rid of %define _with_gcj_support 0 and %define gcj_support 0
-  the %define gcj_support .... doesn't seems like it can be split up
  into multiple lines
- don't we need a %define _without_maven 1 for building in plague?
- for the %post and %postun, the if condition should probably be before the
 the %post[,un] so that there won't be an empty %post[,un] if gcj_support is 0.
* package successfully compiles and builds on at least x86
* BuildRequires are proper
 - builds in mock will flush out problems here
 - the following packages don't need to be listed in BuildRequires:
   fedora-release (and/or redhat-release)
* summary should be a short and concise description of the package
* description expands upon summary (don't include installation
* make sure lines are <= 80 characters
* specfile written in American English
* make a -doc sub-package if necessary
 - see
* packages including libraries should exclude static libraries if possible
* don't use rpath
* config files should usually be marked with %config(noreplace)
* GUI apps should contain .desktop files
* should the package contain a -devel sub-package?
* use macros appropriately and consistently
 - ie. %{buildroot} and %{optflags} vs. $RPM_BUILD_ROOT and $RPM_OPT_FLAGS
* don't use %makeinstall
* locale data handling correct (find_lang)
 - if translations included, add BR: gettext and use %find_lang %{name} at the
   end of %install
* consider using cp -p to preserve timestamps
* split Requires(pre,post) into two separate lines
* package should probably not be relocatable
* package contains code
 - see
 - in general, there should be no offensive content
* package should own all directories and files
* there should be no %files duplicates
* file permissions should be okay; %defattrs should be present
* %clean should be present
* %doc files should not affect runtime
* if it is a web apps, it should be in /usr/share/%{name} and *not* /var/www
* verify the final provides and requires of the binary RPMs
will do these when issues are fixed
* run rpmlint on the binary RPMs

* package should include license text in the package and mark it with %doc
* package should build on i386
* package should build in mock
will try to build after issues are fixed, and BR's are built.

Comment 4 Permaine Cheung 2007-03-07 04:47:41 UTC
The url for spec file and srpm now point to spec file and srpm for
plexus-runtime-builder. Please fix them. Thanks!

Comment 7 Deepak Bhole 2007-03-10 00:11:57 UTC
er, should have stated what I fixed:

1. BR's are fixed
2. Files section is fixed
3. Tarball creation command is fixed
4. License is fixed
5. Spacing is fixed

Since the project does not include a License.txt, there is nothing to put s %doc
for that.

Comment 8 Permaine Cheung 2007-03-12 14:34:52 UTC
* run rpmlint on the binary RPMs built in mock:

In the future when fixing defining gcj_support to 1, the if condition should
probably be before the  the %post[,un] so that there won't be an empty %post[,un].

Reassigning to you to be built in brew.

Comment 10 Bernard Johnson 2007-04-11 22:49:23 UTC
Pardon the bugzilla spam.  This package appears to have been approved, imported,
and built.

If that is the case, please close this bug RESOLVE -> NEXTRELEASE as documented
in the package review process:
