First off, there may be legal issues. WPA is a trademark of the Wi-Fi 
Alliance. If that means anything for Fedora, I don't know.... Anyone else 
feeling more like playing armchair lawyer? ;-)

That means you did something like

* Tue Jun 21 2005 Douglas E. Warner <silfreed silfreed net> 0.4.2-1

but did

Version: 0.4.2
Release: 1%{?dist}

in the spec (so it sees 0.4.2-1.fc4 as the version-release for the 
package, but sees 0.4.2-1 as the version-release in the changelog)

In this case, you can ignore it. It's because you're using the %{?dist}

Fine as long as there's a reason (as there is in this case). Just put a 
comment above it in the spec to note why for the sake of others reading

Any new service added in Extras should be off by default. That needs to be 
fixed -- change the

# chkconfig: 2345 12 88


# chkconfig: - 12 88

in wpa_supplicant.init.d

You don't have a subsys lock file. Adding something like:


to wpa_supplicant.init.d will fix that

(you might want to install fedora-rpmdevtools and take a look at 
/usr/share/fedora/template.init for an example of everything you want / 
need in an init)
