Hi Larry, I did come across your scripts on the wiki. At this point I was just using the official tar ball and the patch that is in the official instructions. Usually, AFAIK, RPMs only install the software and it's basic default configuration files. Once the package is installed then you could configure/initialize it with something like chef, puppet, ansible, etc, or your custom scripts.
