and custom formatted password files.

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2007-05-06 17:21:55 UTC
Builds fine and rpmlint is clean.  Everything looks good, although I'm curious
about the split of the -samba subpackage.  The additional dependencies from
php-pear-Crypt-CHAP only total about 200K, which isn't a really big deal but I
guess it is nonzero.  It looks like the code handles the missing Smb module well
(raising an exception instead of just bombing) so I don't suppose it will hurt
anything.  But if you were trying to save folks from having to install samba,
then there's not much point because even now the -samba module doesn't require
samba (just a few encryption libs).

You might also consider calling the subpackage "-Smb" since that's what the
module itself is called.  We don't really have any guidelines for this, so I
suppose it's up to you.

I don't see any blockers, though.

* source files match upstream:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   php-pear(File_Passwd) = 1.1.6
   php-pear-File-Passwd = 1.1.6-1.fc7

   php-pear-File-Passwd-samba = 1.1.6-1.fc7
   php-pear(Crypt_CHAP) >= 1.0.0
   php-pear-File-Passwd = 1.1.6-1.fc7

* %check is not present; no test suite upstream.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
   /usr/share/pear/File is also owned by php-pear-File but it is not a
   dependency (and it doesn't need to be).
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.

APPROVED, I'll leave it to you to decide whether you really need the subpackage.
