  NIT - lots of tabs lead to goofy indentation; remove tabs

I get the following from rpmlint:

ace-console-wui.noarch: E: zero-length /usr/share/ace/ace-console-wui/db/development.sqlite3
ace-console-wui.noarch: W: symlink-should-be-relative /usr/share/ace/ace-console-wui/config/environments/production.rb /etc/ace-console-wui/production.rb
ace-console-wui.noarch: W: symlink-should-be-relative /usr/share/ace/ace-console-wui/config/environments/test.rb /etc/ace-console-wui/test.rb

ace-console-wui.noarch: E: incoherent-subsys /etc/rc.d/init.d/ace-console-wui ace-console-wui}

Either fix them or explain why they are ok to keep.

I have uploaded a new srpm. Information is below.

Explanations on the rpmlint errors:

ace-console-wui.noarch: E: zero-length
Currently rails requires a database. This is the empty sqlite backed file for this.

ace-console-wui.noarch: W: symlink-should-be-relative (several of these)
The symlinks are to macro driven locations (e.g. linking to %{_sysconfdir}/%{name}/test.rb). This seems a less fragile approach then using lots of nested ../

ace-console-wui.noarch: E: incoherent-subsys /etc/rc.d/init.d/ace-console-wui
This service is using mongrel-rails under the cover. The lockfile is parameter driven (stole this from ovirt) and that trigger this error.

Comment 4 Jason Tibbitts 2009-11-08 19:18:22 UTC
This ticket is terribly old.  I'm not planning to review this package, but I can make some comments.

Still builds OK.  rpmlint says:

  ace-console-wui.noarch: W: dangling-symlink
   /usr/share/ace/ace-console-wui/tmp /var/lib/%{inst_name}/tmp
You didn't address this above.  There's only one occurrence of "%{inst_name}" in the spec; it's not defined anywhere, so it's just used verbatim.  This is almost certainly some sort of oversight.

Your %description should be at least one complete sentence.  It seems to be missing punctuation currently.

Your macro usage is inconsistent.  If for whatever reason you really want to type a lot and use "%{__mv}" and the like, you need to use "%{__rm} as well.

Comment 5 Rafael Aquini 2010-07-31 02:55:45 UTC

It's been almost ten months with no progress; This bug should be closed soon if
there is no response, shouldn't it?

Comment 6 Rafael Aquini 2010-08-07 15:55:03 UTC

As you have already closed this bug, I'm just blocking it to FE-DEADREVIEW, accordingly to Fedora's Policy for stalled package reviews:
