 Hello, I'll take the reviews tonight.

 Some quick thoughts :

  * keep timestamps (-p) e.g "install -pm xxx"
  * check the url of poky-depends
  * I haven't look at it in detail, but it seems to me that poky-depends is
 a metapackage. Normally, fedora tries to stay away from the metapackage,
 because it's one source of the rpm dependency hells. If in the future the
 packaging guidelines gets strict you would be asked to retire that
 package. If it is a metapackage as I think, I would suggest that in poky-
 scripts you create a subpackage with -n "poky-depends" instead and puts
 the requires accordingly. It would complicate the spec file, however you
 will be in the safe side if the packaging guidelines changes.

 e.g of creation of subpackage with -n
