Description Jason Friedland 2009-03-31 01:46:34 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: A collection of utilities easing the creation of command line scripts. cliutils is pure Python with no dependencies. At the moment, the module provides three disparate features: Process objects, a command-line argument parsing decorator, and a logging decorator factory.

I still require a sponsor and will add FE-NEEDSPONSOR to the blocks field.

Comment 2 Susi Lehtola 2009-04-03 16:23:39 UTC
- Don't use macros for cat or rm. (Macro for python is in the python guideline
for some reason.)

- Don't use filelist.

- Use %defattr(-,root,root,-)

- Remove empty %post and %postun sections.

- Change

BuildRequires: python, python-devel, python-setuptools


BuildRequires: python-setuptools-devel

(BR python is redundant, since python-devel already pulls that in. If you BR
python-setuptools-devel, then it pulls setuptools and python-devel

You don't even need python-setuptools unless you want to build for EPEL. For a plain Fedora spec you'd just need BR: python-devel. (In the python guideline the BR is actually just python.)

Thanks for the feedback Jussi - I will bear that in mind for future reference.

I have edited the SPEC and re-uploaded the files:

Ping, do you still need a sponsor? Do you have other submissions and have you done reviews of other packages?

Comment 5 Jason Friedland 2009-04-28 08:35:11 UTC
Yes, I still need a sponsor.

I have only reviewed the following package so far:

And have also submitted this package:

Comment 6 Susi Lehtola 2009-04-28 09:12:49 UTC
Okay, I can sponsor you, but first I need to see that you know the packaging guidelines.

You have done only python packages so far, so I'd like to see reviews of some packages of other types as well. You can also package something yourself; if you don't have anything on your todo list you can look up something from the Fedora Wishlist, just remember to check first if a) the package is already in Fedora or b) there is already a review request of the package in bugzilla

Comment 8 Jason Tibbitts 2009-06-30 00:08:06 UTC
It's been far too long with no response from the submitter; I'll close this out.
