------- Additional Comments From wolfy at nobugconsulting.ro  2007-02-23 06:20 EST -------
 - Package meets naming and packaging guidelines
 - Spec file matches base package name.
 - Spec has consistant macro usage.
 - Meets Packaging Guidelines.
 - License is "distributable", already discussed above
 - License field in spec matches
 - Spec is legible, in American English
 - Sources match upstream, sha1sum:
a3dafe4b55206dcf19a8b4c67252628c2ad3fab4 symlinks-1.2.tar.gz
 - No BuildRequires
 - No locales/find_lang
 - Package is not relocatable
 - Permissions are sane [*]
 - Package has a correct %clean section.
 - Package has correct buildroot
      %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)
 - Package is code or permissible content.
 - Doc subpackage not needed/used (no %doc files at all)
 - no headers/static/.pc/.la libs
 - no need for ldconfig or scriptlets
 - not a GUI
 - Package builds fine in mock/devel/x86_64
 - Package has no duplicate files in %files.
 - Package doesn't own any directories other packages own.
 - Package owns all files it creates; it does not create any directories
 - rpmlint output:
Source RPM:
W: symlinks invalid-license distributable
- discussed above
W: symlinks setup-not-quiet
- please consider using setup -q
Binary RPM:
E: symlinks no-cleaning-of-buildroot %install
that;s a MUSTFIX: Package lacks cleaning the buildroot in the %install section
rpmlint of symlinks:
W: symlinks invalid-license distributable
- see above


 - Should build in mock. - OK for devel/x86_64 and i386
 - Should build on all supported archs - tested on x86_64 and i386, OK
 - Should function as described - OK
 - Should have sane scriptlets - OK (no scriptlets)
 - Should have subpackages require base package with fully versioned depend. -
not needed
 - Should have dist tag OK
 - Should package latest version OK
 - check for outstanding bugs on package. (For core merge reviews) - OK (none)

mostly OK, with one MUSTFIX and a couple of cosmetic fixes:
- please consider using the newer preferred value in %files, (-,root,root,-)
- please add -q to setup in order to silence it
- it would be nice to add usage of smp_flags to make (not that it matters for a
5K source, but the rules are the rules)

- %install should contain rm -fR $RPM_BUILD_ROOT

Please fix the above and the package is APPROVED
