Looking at the spec, it seems pretty obvious that it was written without looking at our packaging guidelines at all, and that rpmlint was never run on the output. It's full of things that we forbid the use of, and things that simply should not be done. The scriptlets in particular are simply way over the top.
Is there still interest in submitting this package? Before someone's going to spend the time to review it, it would be nice if you at least tried to clean it up a bit.
The previous owner of this project (Mark Windrim) left Infobright awhile back. There is still interest in moving forward with submitting this package. Your points about the packaging are well taken - I will follow up with the build team here and see about getting this moving again.
Thanks for the reminder.
