Feedback form is now closed.
Right now many RPM spec files are in large parts just boiler plate code. In the current development cycle we try to get rid of this clutter by adding templates and automatic packaging features to rpmbuild. This will make packaging easier as it will provide pre-arranged building blocks and offer more control over larger sets of packages.
This will also change the relation between RPM as a multipurpose tool and the single package/packager by adding a layer in between take will take care of common tasks.
We will discuss how these features affect your packages and what you can do to help getting this right and how to get involved in taking ownership of this new intermediate layer.
