Ok... my opinions aren't going to be the greatest as I am really out
of practice.. but here are some general questions

1) Is massive perl patches ok for Fedora packages or is it better to
generate the patch as a file and apply it directly. When I do it
myself, I prefer the second as it doesnt break my auto-buildsystem as
much as pulling in perl etc when I don't need it.

2) file creation from inside of the SPEC. Is it better to have them as
seperate files or use cat inside the SPEC? Again.. I prefer seperate
files.. but I can understand having it in the spec means fix once
versus remember to fix a file you forgot about.

3) The generation of the UID is using whatever useradd gives it. Does
this fit in with the Fedora/EPEL standards?
