Since there is a spec file in both the plugins and in nagios, and since
I am the lead developer for the plugins, and a developer for nagios, and
since fedora is supposed to emphasize upstream changes, I'd really
appreciate any effort that could be made to merge these specfile
changes with the main distribution.
The holy grail would be to have a distro agnostic specfile that also met
fedora's guidelines. That may be difficult at present, but at the
very least I would appreciate if those changes that could be part of the
main distribution could be broken out and submitted to the
nagios (and plugins) devlopers.
Bottom line: I use fedora, so the spec with the distro is always going
to be more congruent with fedora than any other distro. If fedora
contributions can feed back to the nagios projects, it's to the overall
good, at least IMHO.
