If there is anything in Moblin that I'd like Fedora to consider
adopting, it is specbuilder. Specbuilder is basically the (start of) an
autopackaging tool, where we try to automatically generate packaging for
a class of upstream projects. The class we're focusing on is those
upstream packages that use autoconf/automake/etc and use pkgconfig.

For these packages we have a very small .ini file with some basic
metadata (which we're trying to autogenerate at much as possible as
well), which specbuilder then turns into a .spec file for building.

These ini files are relatively small and simple, and can mostly be
autogenerated. The result is a very consistent set of rpms, and we're
working on being able to generate other packaging formats from this
same minimal metadata as well....

For example the ini file for the Intel IIG graphics driver package
looks like this:

Summary = Xorg X11 Intel video driver
Name = xorg-x11-drv-intel
LocaleName = xorg-x11-drv-intel
Version = 2.7.0
