Summary: Review Request: gnu-smalltalk - GNU Smalltalk


------- Additional Comments From mtasaka ioa s u-tokyo ac jp  2006-11-28 02:22 EST -------
Okay, I will review this package.

0. spec file description :
* %prep
  - applying patches
    I usually recommend to add some suffix every time you apply
    a patch, e.g.
    %patch1 -p1 -b .am

* %build section
  - export CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS"
    This is not necessary because %configure macro sets this.

  - make %{?_smp_mflags} LIBTOOL="/usr/bin/libtool"
    Use macro. i.e.  LIBTOOL="%{_bindir}/libtool"

* %install section
  - Fix broken Shebangs
    (Please see "timestamp" section below for this).

* %files section
    Why does every subpackage have same COPYING file? Only for
    rpmlint issue? If so, please remove these as this rpmlint can be
  - *.st files
    Well, actually I first saw this utility so I don't quite know
    how to use this package, however, are these *.st really required
    for 'minimal' use of smalltalk? Or are these somewhat 'add-on'
    files for smalltalk? (The judgment as of what is 'minimal' use
    is up to you.)
  - /usr/share/gnu-smalltalk/unsupported/binary.c
    rpmlint complains about this file as 'devel-file-in-non-devel-package'.
    Would you explain why this file should be in main package?

1. From http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines :
* Timestamps
  This package contains lots of text files (mainly *.st files), so
  keeping timestamps is highly preferable because
  - it shows when the file is written by upstream or vendor (as you)
  - it may suggest whether vendor (you) have changed original content.

  So please keep timestamps for text files included.
  A. Try: 'make DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT INSTALL="install -c -p" install'
  B. For "Fix broken Shebangs" section:
  B-1  check if this section is still needed.
  B-2  If so (i.e. this section is still needed), change the description
       of this section so that the files which are actually not needed
       to be fixed _WON'T_ change their timestamps.

* File and Directory Ownership
  - %{_datadir}/aclocal/
    This directory is owned only by automake and so -devel package should
    require automake.
