Description Nathaniel McCallum 2010-06-19 17:56:58 UTC
Spec URL:
To send alphanumeric pages to a pager, if an email gateway is unavailable
or undesirable, software is needed to control a modem which will dial a
"Paging Central", and deliver the pages using an ASCII delivery system
known as "TAP".

Sendpage implements all aspects of this type of software, including an
SNPP client, an SNPP server, a queuing engine, a modem control engine, a
TAP communication system, and an email notification system.

This fails to build for me:

Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/sendpage-1.000003-1.fc15.x86_64
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:
    Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

If you look at other perl packages, or the suggested template, you'll see that these are always deleted.  However, I'm not sure how they would end up under /usr/local, as it is not permissible for Fedora packages to ever place files there.

The spec uses macros inconsistently; please just drop the bizarre and difficult-to-type %{__install} and %{__mkdir_p}.  Or, if you insist on them, you need at least %{__sed} and %{__rm} as well.

Please clear the whiteboard when providing a package which builds.

Still doesn't build after 19 months; closing.
