Description: 
Wbox aims to help you having fun while testing HTTP related stuff.
You can use it to perform many tasks, including the following.
 * Benchmarking how much time it takes to generate content
   for your web application.
 * Web server and web application stressing.
 * Testing virtual domains configuration without the need to alter
   your local resolver.
 * Check if your redirects are working correctly emitting
   the right HTTP code.
 * Test if the HTTP compression is working and if it is actually
   serving pages faster.
 * Use it as a configuration-less HTTP server to share files!

Hi!

Just a few comments/suggestions:

- You could use a macro in the Source0 line: replace the hardcoded version number with %{version} so that you don't need to update it in two places later.

- Do you plan on maintaining this package on EPEL5? If yes, add the BuildRoot as instructed in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/GuidelinesAndPolicies . Otherwise you can drop the rm -rf %{buildroot} from the beginning of %install, since it's done automatically in newer versions.

Fixed, it was a mistake when I was testing.

I'm not planing to support epel5, so I've removed  rm -rf %{buildroot} from %install

Thanks for your suggestions.
