Comment 1 Šimon Lukašík 2007-05-24 19:39:01 UTC
* MUST: rpmlint must be run on every package. The output should be posted in the
        OK, clear
* MUST: The package must be named according to the Package Naming Guidelines.
* MUST: The spec file name must match the base package %{name}, in the format
%{name}.spec unless your package has an exemption on Package Naming Guidelines.
* MUST: The package must meet the Packaging Guidelines.
* MUST: The package must be licensed with an open-source compatible license and
meet other legal requirements as defined in the legal section of Packaging
        OK; GPL
* MUST: The License field in the package spec file must match the actual license.
        OK; GPL 2, June 1991
* MUST: If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the license(s)
in its own file, then that file, containing the text of the license(s) for the
package must be included in %doc.
        OK; COPYING
* MUST: The spec file must be written in American English.
* MUST: The spec file for the package MUST be legible.
* MUST: The sources used to build the package must match the upstream source, as
provided in the spec URL.
        OK; md5 - c7c7f89d6dac502ad31d12198a8836c1
* MUST: The package must successfully compile and build into binary rpms on at
least one supported architecture.
        OK; i386
* MUST: If the package does not successfully compile, build or work on an
architecture, then those architectures should be listed in the spec in ExcludeArch.
        OK; no ExcluseArch meanwhile; no notice from upstream.
* MUST: All build dependencies must be listed in BuildRequires.
* MUST: The spec file MUST handle locales properly.
* MUST: Every binary RPM package which stores shared library files (not just
symlinks) in any of the dynamic linker's default paths, must call ldconfig in
%post and %postun. If the package has multiple subpackages with libraries, each
subpackage should also have a %post/%postun section that calls /sbin/ldconfig.
* MUST: If the package is designed to be relocatable, the packager must state
this fact in the request for review, along with the rationalization for
relocation of that specific package. Without this, use of Prefix: /usr is
considered a blocker.
* MUST: A package must own all directories that it creates.
* MUST: A package must not contain any duplicate files in the %files listing.
* MUST: Permissions on files must be set properly. Executables should be set
with executable permissions, for example. Every %files section must include a
%defattr(...) line.
* MUST: Each package must have a %clean section, which contains rm -rf
%{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).
* MUST: Each package must consistently use macros, as described in the macros
section of Packaging Guidelines.
* MUST: The package must contain code, or permissable content. This is described
in detail in the code vs. content section of Packaging Guidelines.
* MUST: Large documentation files should go in a -doc subpackage.
* MUST: If a package includes something as %doc, it must not affect the runtime
of the application.
* MUST: Header files must be in a -devel package.
        OK; There is no header files in telepathy-idle package.
* MUST: Static libraries must be in a -static package.
* MUST: Packages containing pkgconfig(.pc) files must 'Requires: pkgconfig'
* MUST: If a package contains library files with a suffix (e.g.,
then library files that end in .so (without suffix) must go in a -devel package.
        OK, *.so here are symlinks
* MUST: In the vast majority of cases, devel packages must require the base
package using a fully versioned dependency.
        OK; Not devel
* MUST: Packages must NOT contain any .la libtool archives, these should be
removed in the spec.
* MUST: Packages containing GUI applications must include a %{name}.desktop
file, and that file must be properly installed with desktop-file-install in the
%install section.
        OK; No GUI.
* MUST: Packages must not own files or directories already owned by other packages.
* MUST: At the beginning of %install, each package MUST run rm -rf %{buildroot}
* MUST: All filenames in rpm packages must be valid UTF-8.
Looks fine; Maybe in description/summary there can (not must, I think) be
something about curses(or terminal) environment...

Comment 4 Šimon Lukašík 2007-05-25 12:38:03 UTC
Hello, I know it's late, but for next time:

In spec file:

> BuildRoot: %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-buildroot

Should be:

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

It's recommended, see also: "Build root tag" in Fedora wiki
