I finally committed my updates to gbuild to the GNOME CVS tonight. This will mean gbuild will be able to be built as a rpm, it now has all the files it needs and I also added a spec file to it. What fun! Have begun my perl version of gbuild. I'm thinking now that it would be cool to add functionality to it so that you could push the results of the build to a website and have it ftp the tarball & rpm's to the site as well. This would make it a nice tool for the casual project helper to do builds of cvs and publish the results of those builds. The autospec builder perl script could use some work to. It makes a VERY rough spec file. I should also add a switch so that it will build from tarballs and not grab cvs. Managed to figure out (with help from the developers of gnucash) why gnucash 1.4.12 wasn't building on RH 6.2. I'm going to try to build rpms for them this week for this version so now that it will actually build successfully should be a piece of cake.
