After some fun hacking and many, many complete rebuilds, I've
submitted for testing a version of epel-rpm-macros for EPEL5 which
removes the need for several pieces of RPM junk which have annoyed me
for many years now.
These macros do the following, entirely by "magic" without requiring the
use of any boilerplate or line noise:
*) Provide a BuildRoot: tag if one is not specified. (The recommend value
from the EPEL guidelines is used.)
*) Provide Group: tags for the main package and any subpackages which don't
have one. The value used is "Unspecified".
*) Automatically provide a %clean section.
*) Automatically delete the %buildroot at the beginning of %install.
*) Allow the use of %license in the %files section (maps to %doc as usual).
Any ETA on rpmlint EL5 update according to this change?
