Subject RPM builds
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2001 14:58:35 GMT
I've just committed a change which should build Ant's RPMs automatically 
as part of the distribution build. There is a chance this will cause the 
builds to blow up, so I'll be checnking for Gump messages.

The changes check for the existence of /bin/rpm to control whether the 
rpm build is attempted. There are two spec files. One is used to build 
the binary RPM and is somewhat unconventional as it works by copying the 
tar.gz distribution built in the main distribution target. This saves 
building everything twice and guarantees consistency between the 
distributions. The second spec file is used to build the source 
distribution and is a more conventional spec file.

I'm pretty new to RPM building so I'm happy for feedback, especially 
about where things should go, better ways to do things, etc.
