Description Nigel Jones 2008-06-23 03:26:13 UTC
Spec URL:
DateTime::Locale is primarily a factory for the various locale subclasses.
It also provides some functions for getting information on all the
available locales.

Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-06-23 04:53:17 UTC
remove BR: perl from SPEC
Is cldr license approved license? I don't see its mentioned on Licensing page. 

Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-06-23 04:55:51 UTC
Also, build failed as missing BR:perl(Test::More)

I suspect this is out of date, I'll have a look around and see.

Spec URL:

Lets see about the licensing situation though.

Comment 4 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-06-23 05:36:11 UTC
+ package builds in mock.
Koji build =>
+ rpmlint is silent for SRPM and for RPM.
+ source files match upstream url
04cd7e65e4c773dfce972699aafc1f64  DateTime-Locale-0.4001.tar.gz
+ package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
+ specfile is properly named, is cleanly written
+ Spec file is written in American English.
+ Spec file is legible.
+ dist tag is present.
+ build root is correct.
+ %doc is present.
+ BuildRequires are proper.
+ %clean is present.
+ package installed properly.
+ Macro use appears rather consistent.
+ Package contains code, not content.
+ no headers or static libraries.
+ no .pc file present.
+ no -devel subpackage
+ no .la files.
+ no translations are available
+ Does owns the directories it creates.
+ no scriptlets present.
+ no duplicates in %files.
+ file permissions are appropriate.
+ make test is ok.
All tests successful, 2 tests and 1 subtest skipped.
Files=10, Tests=9379,  4 wallclock secs ( 3.87 cusr +  0.13 csys =  4.00 CPU)

Except license everything else look ok to me. my question is can we see if CLDR
license can be approved license and can we specify it in License tag also?

Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-06-23 05:38:09 UTC
I missed rpmlint output in above review. you need to work on following warning 
perl-DateTime-Locale.noarch: W: file-not-utf8
The character encoding of this file is not UTF-8.  Consider converting it
in the specfile for example using iconv(1).
==> use iconv to fix 

Comment 6 Paul Howarth 2008-06-23 08:14:15 UTC
The DateTime::Locale (and DateTime::TimeZone) modules are packaged bundled with
DateTime in Fedora already. See Bug #167376.

Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-06-23 08:33:40 UTC
oops my bad. I just checked this package exists in fedora using
yum search DateTime

I should have checked its contents first before doing review of this package.

Comment 8 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-06-23 08:41:09 UTC
Just looked into perl-DateTime.spec and found that this package is part of
existing perl-DateTime package in fedora.
In this case I am going to CLOSE this review as NOTABUG.
Sorry Nigel for taking your time to update initial submitted package.
