Spec URL:
Description: Beah - Beaker Test Harness.

Ultimate Test Harness, with goal to serve any tests and any test scheduler
tools. Harness consist of a server and two kinds of clients - backends and

Backends issue commands to Server and process events from tasks.
Tasks are mostly events producers.

Powered by Twisted.

This is my first package and I need a sponsor. Thanks.

Some random comments.

This builds but doesn't install properly:

Non-fatal POSTIN scriptlet failure in rpm package beah-0.6.rpmlint.4-1.fc15.noarch

warning: %post(beah-0.6.rpmlint.4-1.fc15.noarch) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

Please remove the rhel3 stuff; there's no point at all in it as el4 is the oldest thing you can build for.

Summary: and %description could use some work.  In particular, there's no need to have the URL of the project in the Summary; that's what the URL: field is for.

Explicit python(abi) dependency is unnecessary (and redundant) in Fedora; you end up with:
  python(abi) >= 2.3
  python(abi) = 2.7
there's also no need for the manual python dependency.

Source0: URL is invalid.

Thanks for the comments. I will try to iron out these issues.

Re: el3: We are still using RHEL3 :-( However I would like to have a cleaner master and having a separate branch for things like el3 support - no need for the clutter in master spec.

Comment 5 Michael Schwendt 2012-04-26 18:34:11 UTC
With regard today's thread on fedora devel list, I'm closing this in accordance with

as nothing has happened in here since 2010-11-22, and tickets like this fill existing tracker pages, such as
which makes it less easy to process them regularly.
