I have built a Zope 2.5.1 source RPM, it's ready for community tasting and 
testing ;-)

Zope Corp, could you please host it, perhaps at 
http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/2.5.1 ?

I would like to only make it available in .src.rpm format initially, so 
that users & testers can "rpmbuild --rebuild" it and test it as is, or "rpm 
-Uvh" it, look over the installed spec, scripts etc, make changes (please 
let me know!) and finally "rpmbuild -ba" the spec.

When any and all changes are in I can build a "final" .src.rpm, this would 
also be the time to make binary RPMS available.

Eventually, I'd like to put the spec, scripts etc into Zope's CVS, so that 
"rpmbuild -ta Zope.tar.gz" could be used to generate rpms directly from 
tarball, as retrieved by: 
for example. This part might take a while, I looked at what was done in the 
spec of courier-imap-1.4.5.tar.gz and it seems to be a fairly involved 
task... It may be best to wait for InstallationAndConfiguration of 
Proposals to be implemented for the default build / install of Zope before 
attempting to dynamically wrap this process with RPM.

Questions, comments, suggestions, patches, changes, feedback etc are 
welcome and encouraged.
