Hello everybody.

I have just committed few changes to https://www.gitorious.org/dejan- fedora that allow you to build functional RPMs on your Fedora 19 systems. I will aim for now to support F19, F20, EL5 and EL6. If someone needs support for something else, please send patches or just simply come to IRC
and let me know what is the problem. :)

Great, will you take the honour to submit this to Fedora?

Few remarks - SPEC file expects source files to be on http://ddn.so/ files/ . I hope our release manager, or so-called "build master" will make sure dlang.org provides source tarballs of dmd, phobos, druntime and tools the same or similar way I have them on http://ddn.so/files/ (btw,
you can't browse it yet, but you can download files).

I use the simple get-files.sh (located in the dmd directory in the dejan-
fedora repo) to get those release tarballs from GitHub.

Finally, I decided to be little bit adventurous and made the SPEC file generate dmd.conf with -defaultlib=libphobos2.so flag in DFLAGS.

It would be better to stick to the current dlang state.

Following Fedora package guidelines, I provide static library in the
libphobos-static package instead.

Splitting in different packages is needed to comply with RPM guidelines, but it's a bad fit for a single binary installer on dlang.org.
I'm working on a spec file for the latter.

Btw, I forgot to tell you... I talked to fedora people about having dmd in Fedora. They said it will probably be rejected because of the backend license, because they are not allowed to freely distribute the software. So I guess we will most likely have to setup our own YUM repository on dlang.org - that is probably the best course of action. If someone has better idea, please share it.
