In my opinion, my spec files are cleaner, more explicit about
dependencies and options, and more compatible with the curren
tupstream RHEL, Sckentific Linux, and Fedora environments. I also
publish the necessary components to build up the "mock" toolchain to
build the dependencies. And I'm the author of the first published
ports of Samba to SunOS 4.1.x, so I've been at it a while as a useful
hobby.  I also find it irritating as futz to have to register to
download the SerfNet packages.

I've submitted some patches to SerfNet in the past: they don't
necessarily agree with my tweaks or RHEL's tweaks, and I've never
heard back from them.
