Just a quick review suggestion,

In magento.spec line no. 28 remove unwanted tabs

Comment 4 Christoph Wickert 2010-01-09 21:26:10 UTC
Some comments on your spec:

Words in summary should start with capital letters: "Ecommmerce Platform"

%description should have linebreaks at 80 chararkters, it fits on an 80x25 terminal.

I don't like the word "perfect" in the description, it sounds like advertising.

Your Requires: line is even longer than your description, this makes the spec hard to read. Please split this into several lines.

There are some redundant Requires:, e.g. you don't need mysql-libs when you already have mysql. Please check the list for other redundancies.

%setup -q -n %{name}-%{version} is the same as a simple %setup -q

Fixing permissions and removing the .cvsignore files should be done in %prep instead of %install.

Please preserve the timestamps of the original files by adding -p to cp and install. See

Instead of using cp I'd perfer install because you can set the correct permissions, so you wont need the chmod command after install.

BTW: The chmod command is very long, please split this into several lines too

For magento.conf I'd prefer a a separate Source1 instead of creating it on the fly in the spec. But this is up to you.

Overall the legibility of the spec could be better if it was properly formatted. IMHO all Fedora specs should start from the template you get with rpmdev-newspec.

Last but not least please use rpmlint to check your spec and packages. It would have warned you about some issues I pointed out here.

Dear Christoph,

I am going to do the modification as soon as possible.

Best Regards
Frederic ;)

Comment 6 Jason Tibbitts 2010-11-14 18:46:30 UTC
Looks like those modifications never happened.

Comment 7 Frederic Hornain 2010-11-15 10:02:05 UTC
I am going to see if I can fix that asap.
My apologies for the delay.

Frederic ;)
