Description Lubomir Rintel 2008-07-13 10:32:58 UTC


This toolkit contains essential command-line utilities for MySQL, such as a 
table checksum tool and query profiler. It provides missing features such as 
checking slaves for data consistency, with emphasis on quality and

rpmlint doesn't like the license "GPLv2 or Artistic". As this seems to be a 
missing license in rpmlint / the Fedora license page I have opened bz #457486 
against rpmlint.

Two issues so far:

1. the backticks in perl(:MODULE_COMPAT... should be replaced by <code></code>
   to make it more readable (and compliant to the perl packaging guidelines).

2. the resulting package doesn't install under r9/f10 - the requires needs to be changed to perl(DBD::mysql)

Sven, FYI, it's best to not let updates to reviews sit more than two weeks.  If for some reason you're unable to complete the review, it's best to unassign it from your self so it's clear what's going on and another reviewer can be sought.

Lubomir, if need be, I can finish this.


Comment 6 Sven Lankes 2008-10-27 12:47:32 UTC
Sorry. In my head this review had the status 'waiting for packager' when in reality it really is 'packager waiting for reviewer'. I'll work on this tonight.

Comment 7 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-10-27 12:57:33 UTC
If I had a nickel for every time I'd done that. . .
