Description Stanislav Ochotnicky 2010-05-06 14:58:12 UTC
Spec URL:

Description: Package was renamed from jakarta-commons-discovery. Discovery provides facilities for finding and instantiating classes, and for lifecycle management of singleton (factory) classes.

Comment 1 Stanislav Ochotnicky 2010-05-06 15:07:09 UTC
Adding bug #589168 as blocker because this package contains Requires on apache-commons-logging.

Comment 2 Stanislav Ochotnicky 2010-05-07 09:56:26 UTC
Fixed provides to not self-deprecate self.

Spec URL:

Also any reviewer should note that this is a re-review of existing package named jakarta-commons-discovery.

Comment 3 Peter Lemenkov 2010-05-07 10:02:07 UTC
*-javadoc subpackage must require owner of %{_javadocdir}, e.g. jpackage-utils. Also, I dont think that you should mark %{_javadocdir}/%{name}-%{version} and %{_javadocdir}/%{name} as %dir explicitly.

Comment 4 Stanislav Ochotnicky 2010-05-07 12:05:53 UTC
Thanks for comments.

> -javadoc subpackage must require owner of %{_javadocdir}, e.g. jpackage-utils.

I fixed this but I will wait a bit before creating another revision in case something else comes up. I also noticed your question about javadoc requires on their parents on fedora-devel. Once that will be cleared up I will create new version of spec/srpm.

I am sorry, but as far as I see I named them using %doc not %dir. Is this wrong? I was told %doc is optional in this case but it will not hurt anything.

You're right - I was wrong here, so, please, disregard this particular objection.

Comment 6 Alexander Kurtakov 2010-05-10 11:28:04 UTC
I'm taking this one.

Comment 7 Alexander Kurtakov 2010-05-10 12:35:49 UTC

OK: rpmlint must be run on every package. OUTPUT:

apache-commons-discovery.noarch: W: spelling-error %description -l en_US Pluggable -> Plug gable, Plug-gable, Plugged
apache-commons-discovery.noarch: W: spelling-error %description -l en_US lifecycle -> life cycle, life-cycle, lifestyle

Not a problem. 

OK: The package must be named according to the Package Naming Guidelines .
OK: The spec file name must match the base package %{name}, in the format
%{name}.spec unless your package has an exemption. 
OK: The package must meet the Packaging Guidelines .
OK: The package must be licensed with a Fedora approved license and meet the
Licensing Guidelines .
OK: The License field in the package spec file must match the actual license.

provided in the spec URL.
OK: The package MUST successfully compile and build into binary rpms on at
least one primary architecture.
OK: All build dependencies must be listed in BuildRequires, except for any that
are listed in the exceptions section of the Packaging Guidelines ; inclusion of
those as BuildRequires is optional. Apply common sense.
OK: Packages must NOT bundle copies of system libraries.
OK: A package must own all directories that it creates. 
OK: A Fedora package must not list a file more than once in the spec file's
%files listings. 
OK: Permissions on files must be set properly. 
OK: Each package must consistently use macros.
OK: The package must contain code, or permissable content. 
OK: Large documentation files must go in a -doc subpackage. Javadocs

the application. 
OK: Packages must not own files or directories already owned by other packages. 
OK: All filenames in rpm packages must be valid UTF-8. 
OK: Package is correctly Obsoleting/Providing the package it's replacing.
