fedora-review: Tools to helpe review packages for inclusion in Fedora
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This tool automates much of the dirty work when reviewing a package
for the Fedora Package Collection.

Like:
- Downloading SRPM & SPEC from Bugzilla report
- Download upstream source
- Check md5sums
- Run rpmlint
- Generate review report will both manual & automated checks, ready to
  complete and paste into the Bugzilla report.

fedora-review is still under heavy development.

Contacts
--------

* IRC: #fedora-review @ freenode
* Mailing list: fedorareview@lists.fedorahosted.org

Requirements
------------

* Python
* rpm & yum
* mock
* editor
* python-bugzilla
* fedora-packager
* python-straight-plugin
* python-kitchen
* python-BeautifulSoup
* rpmdevtools

The mock requirement is not hard, it's possible to use fedora-review
without mock when always using the --prebuilt/-p option. This means 
that packages must be built using other tools e. g., koji. Generally,
installing without mock is not recommended.

Download
--------
Install git and run the command below to clone the source:

git clone http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/FedoraReview.git

Alternative repository for users wishing to use github:
git clone git://github.com/timlau/FedoraReview.git

Usage
-----

See nroff -man fedora-review.1 | more

Create a language plugin
------------------------
To create a plugin of checks, create a file in src/reviewtools/checks.
All the files in this folder are automatically loaded.

Your class should inherit from the class `LangCheckBase`.
You may want to create a Base class for your own language. Then each tests
is a class. This class has a __init__ method with predefine information
(such as the link to the guidelines and the text to be printed) and a
run method which is what is actually performing the test.

For your test to be taken into account, the class should have
- 'Check' (case sensitive) in its name
- *Not* end with 'Base' (this is reserved for parent class which don't
actually run tests).
- The result of the test should be set using the self.set_passed():
    None            == na
    'inconclusive'  == pending
    True            == passed
    False           == failed
The file plugin.tmpl shows the basic structure/idea and implement an
example test.

External plugins
----------------
It is also possible to create plugins in different languages than
Python. See api/README for details
