Hi all,

I am starting a project called review-o-matic which will do reviews of
Fedora packages based on discussions at
We know of having couple of scripts being used by different people to
do so, but this tool's target is to consolidate those efforts and add
a number of additional features as well. The basic idea is to remove
the grunt work from package reviews.


Run rpmlint
Build the package in mock
verify the md5sum of upstream source matches what is in the srpm
<your ideas here>


The instance you submit a new review request, this tool will
automatically do the following:

* Download SRPM and SPEC as soon as new package review get submitted.
* Do a review , post it on bugzilla and also keep track to show on own
web front end
* People can upload their SRPS to the system to get a review done by the system.
