Description Sandro Mathys 2010-05-11 09:34:28 UTC
Spec URL:
Coerce data to LaTeX and HTML tables.

This is my very first R package, so I'd welcome if the reviewer had some R knowledge and would double check everything's as it's supposed to be. I used R2spec to start the packaging which seems to guarantee a certain level of awesomeness without much brain energy, tho.

rpmlint {SPECS,SRPMS,RPMS/noarch}/R-xtable*
2 packages and 1 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

Comment 1 Pierre-YvesChibon 2010-05-11 09:54:05 UTC
Quickly going through the spec:
BuildRequires:    tetex-latex
needs to be
BuildRequires:    tex(latex)

Since you have a noarch package, you will need to add 
Requires:         R-core

You might want to change the Requires to R-core, you don't really need R-devel ;)

You might want to adapt the source0 (up to you) and to change:

These are esthetic changes mainly, I'll do the proper review later.

Spec URL:

Thanks for the initial review. Made the proposed changes and some other stuff I noticed while working on other R packages and talking to you on IRC :) Also added BR: texinfo-tex as it's needed in %check

rpmlint output is still clean :)

* source files match upstream:
   sha1sum xtable_1.5-6.tar.gz 
2eb74a6d55c0b38d07180f876ec63ce8fbd77742  xtable_1.5-6.tar.gz
   sha1sum rpmbuild/SOURCES/xtable_1.5-6.tar.gz 
2eb74a6d55c0b38d07180f876ec63ce8fbd77742  rpmbuild/SOURCES/xtable_1.5-6.tar.gz

* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* summary is OK.
* description is OK.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text not included upstream.
* latest version is being packaged.
! BuildRequires are proper.
  You should BR on R-devel rather than R

* %clean is present.
* package builds in koji ( ).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint produces 4 warnings, safe to ignore (spelling).
  2 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.
* final provides and requires are sane
* %check is present and all tests pass.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.

I trust you can correct the BR before uploading and building in the CVS.
