Description Bernard Johnson 2009-11-21 20:58:22 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: Nettop is a program which looks like top, but is for network packets.

$ rpmlint *rpm
nettop.src: W: summary-not-capitalized top-like program for network packets
nettop.x86_64: W: summary-not-capitalized top-like program for network packets
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 2 warnings.

These warning can be ignored because it is the proper capitalization for this program name, it just happens to be at the beginning of the line.

Comment 1 Susi Lehtola 2009-11-24 14:14:29 UTC
Change the summary to "A top-like program for network packets" to fix the rpmlint warnings.

Comment 2 Susi Lehtola 2009-11-24 14:16:49 UTC
Furthermore, add comments in the spec file as to why Source1-2 and Patch0-2 are needed. Also, please rename your patches to start with nettop-,  e.g.

 # Patch to fix compilation errors 
 Patch0:         nettop-compile.patch

This way build directories stay cleaner.

Comment 3 Susi Lehtola 2009-11-24 14:18:59 UTC
And a few more comments: use %{version} in the Source0 line to ease up the maintaining of the spec file.

The upstream project server seems to be down, so a review cannot be performed at this stage.

Comment 4 Bernard Johnson 2009-11-25 01:33:36 UTC
Spec URL:

* Tue Nov 24 2009 Bernard Johnson <> - 0.2.3-2
- begin summary line with 'A'
- source0 by name/version macros
- better comments regarding additional sources & patches
- source1/2 were reversed

$ rpmlint *rpm
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

Comment 5 Pavel Alexeev 2010-01-02 16:10:59 UTC
Offsite seams down.

Meantime where links to upstream bugreports for each patches?

Comment 6 Bernard Johnson 2010-01-11 22:57:13 UTC
I sent the author an email asking about the website.  I will let you know when I get a response.

Comment 7 Rafael Aquini 2010-08-10 02:33:17 UTC

Since it's been more than six months with no progress; I guess this bug should be closed soon if there is no response, shouldn't it?

Comment 8 Rafael Aquini 2010-08-20 00:46:10 UTC
Due to the lack of response this review is now considered as stalled.
I'm closing this bug just as described in Fedora's Policy for stalled package
