Description Marek Mahut 2008-08-07 21:20:02 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: Many cablemodem and ADSL users experience horrifying latency
while uploading or downloading. They also notice that uploading
hampers downloading greatly. The wondershaper neatly addresses
these issues, allowing users of a router with a wondershaper to
continue using SSH over a loaded link happily.

Simple bash script.

Comment 1 Till Maas 2008-08-08 15:26:14 UTC
- Source0: has to be a full URL, e.g.{version}.tar.gz
- You should add a comment about the status of the patch:


Adding -b .parameters makes it easier to modify the patch, if this is ever needed, because you can then use "make rediff SUFFIX=parameters" or something similiar in Fedora's cvs.

Comment 4 Till Maas 2008-08-08 17:50:47 UTC
The package is missing a:
BuildArch:      noarch

[NOT OK] rpmlint output:
wondershaper.i386: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 1.1a-2 1.1-0.1.a.f8
This is obvious imho

wondershaper.i386: E: no-binary
I guess it is because the package is not noarch

[OK] Spec in %{name}.spec format
[OK] license: GPL+
[NOT OK] license matches shortname in License:
Imho it should be GPL+, I cannot see a statement that says it is v2 or later
For reference:
Upstream says:
| Licensed under the GPL

[OK] license in tarball and included in %doc:

[OK] package is code or permissive content:
{OK} patches sent to upstream and commented
[OK] Source0 is a working URL
<OK> SourceX / PatchY prefixed with %{name}
[OK] Source0 matches Upstream:
bbc5a3a4485ab286e337ce8550e7b990  wondershaper-1.1a.tar.gz

[OK] Package builds on all platforms: it's noarch
[OK] BuildRequires are complete: no build
(OK) No file dependencies outside of /etc /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin
[OK] Prefix: /usr not used (not relocatable)

[OK] Owns all created directories
[OK] no duplicates in %files
[OK] %defattr(-,root,root,-) is in every %files section
[OK] Does not own files or dirs from other packages
[OK] included filenames are in UTF-8

[OK] %clean is rm -rf %{buildroot} or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT
[OK] %build starts with rm -rf %{buildroot} or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT

[OK] Consistent macro usage

[OK] large documentation is -doc subpackage
[OK] %doc does not affect runtime

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

{OK} PreReq not used
{OK} no duplication of system libraries

{NOT OK} Timestamps preserved with cp and install
install in %install should have -p added

{OK} only writes to tmp /var/tmp $TMPDIR %{_tmppath} %{_builddir} (and %{buildroot} on %install and %clean)
{OK} nothing installed in /srv
{OK} Changelog in allowed format

Fix changelog, architecture and install. Use GPL+ as License or show me why it is GPLv2+. Then I will approve this.
