Spec URL:

for use with PowerPC machines that lack an Open Firmware implementation

Comment 1 Jima 2007-06-29 14:52:35 UTC
Picking up for review...

Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2007-06-29 15:47:42 UTC
the spec file has the wrong instructions for recreating the source.  I'll fix
that in the next revision.  For now, use:

git clone git://; cd dtc; git checkout d9d679fb9; cd
..; mv dtc dtc-20070628; tar -czvf dtc-20070628.tar.gz dtc-20070628;

Comment 3 Josh Boyer 2007-06-29 16:20:56 UTC
Ok, fixed up the spec file and uploaded a new SRPM:

Spec URL:

Comment 4 Jima 2007-06-29 16:49:03 UTC
OK - Spec in American English
OK - Spec is legible.
OK - Sources match upstream md5sum:
tar -zxf dtc-20070628.tar.gz
git clone git://
cd dtc
git checkout d9d679fb9 
rm -rf .git
cd ..
diff -urN dtc-20070628/ dtc/

OK - BuildRequires correct
OK - Package has %defattr and permissions on files is good.
OK - Package has a correct %clean section.
OK - Package has correct buildroot
OK - Package is code or permissible content.
OK - Packages %doc files don't affect runtime.
Documentation is a little thin, but that's upstream's problem to resolve.
OK - Package compiles and builds on at least one arch. (i386, ppc)
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.
no - No rpmlint output.
W: dtc no-version-in-last-changelog

OK - final provides and requires are sane:
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1   

dtc = 0-0.1.20070628gitd9d679fb9.fc6


OK - Should build in mock.
OK - Should build on all supported archs
My x86_64 builder is out of commission ATM, but I'll assume it works there.
OK - Should function as described.
As far as I can tell. :-)
OK - Should have dist tag
OK - Should package latest version
Well, sort of.  Close enough, I think.

In closing, I have a bit of issue with the lack of an EVR on your changelog
entries, but as long as this gets resolved at some point, I think we can let it
slide.  (Cue screams of bloody murder... ;-)

I think we can call dtc APPROVED.

New Package CVS Request

Short Description: Device Tree Compiler
Branches: F-7

Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2007-06-29 21:01:00 UTC
This package already seems to be setup in cvs/owners.list.
However, it doesn't look like it was every imported or built...


Perhaps you could talk to the maintainer about taking it over or co-maintaining it?
