NO *  License is valid

?? -  Source matches upstream (md5)
NA -  Locales use %find_lang
OK -  %clean is present and correct
OK -  Package has correct buildroot.
OK -  Specfile Legible
OK -  Builds in Mock
NA -  %post/%postun calls ldconfig for sh libs

NA -  Headers/static libs in -devel

NA -  -devel requires base
OK -  Contains no .la libtool archive files
OK -  Does not own others files
NA -  .desktop files installed correctly
OK -  BuildRequires correct.
OK -  Package is code or permissible content.
OK -  Package has rm -rf %{buildroot} at top of %install.
      $RPM_BUILD_ROOT used instead
OK -  Package compiles and builds on at least one arch.
?? -  rpmlint output.
OK -  documentation in -doc package
OK -  final provides and requires are sane.
OK -  should have dist tag
?? -  should package latest version

 - RPMLint against asm2-2.1-2jpp.2.fc8.src.rpm says:
   asm2.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 9, tab: line 31)
   asm2.src: W: non-standard-group Development/Libraries/Java
   asm2.src: W: invalid-license BSD-style

 - Source0 should be{name}-%{version}.tar.gz
   Moreover, I couldn't download the source from the specified location on Feb
02, 2008. Connection timed out.
   So I couldn't verify if the package is of latest version or not.
 - License 'BSD-style' is non standard.

Comment 2 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-05 01:08:37 UTC
Any response to Rajeesh's commentary?  Any chance of getting this updated to our
current Java guidelines?  (No javadoc scriptlets, no jpp tag in the Release:, etc.)

Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-26 00:54:33 UTC
Well, no response in over six months, and no response to additional prompting
and needinfo.  I've no choice but to close the Java package reviews that Vivek
has opened.

If someone feels the urge to flame me, please instead expend the effort updating
these packages to current guidelines and reopening the tickets.
