We've been following fedora.us guidelines for a long time. So one cannot
say there would be no guidelines. Adhering to those guidelines would get
rid of the redundant and dangerous explicit dependencies in your package
(libpcap, pcre e.g.), for instance.

Also, with "ready" I mean that an rpmbuild rebuild creates the binary
packages as intended. The latest src.rpm you linked now still does not do
that, but requires lots of manual switches. Other comments posted before.
The package would benefit from a cleanup.

Btw, I'm perfectly fine if somebody else wants to sponsor this package
now or when it's considered ready. I find enough packages to review in
the fedora.us queue.
