Description Need Real Name 2001-12-10 09:40:26 EST
When creating (s)rpm's from perl modules I use a slightly
modified version of the cpanflute script found in the
rpm-build-4.0.3-1.03 package.

The purpose of the `macro-ization' of the generated spec file 
is to minimize the changes people need to make to the spec file
when they update a package in between redhat releases.

Please do a diff with /usr/lib/rpm/cpanflute and change what you like.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2002-02-24 12:28:27 EST
rpm-4.0.4 contains a cpanflute2 script that
will be used in the future. In addition,
this script will end up in a CPAN package,
not in rpm-build in the future, so I'm gonna
assign to the guy who wrote cpanflute2.
