Just use the epoch/version/release numbers, don't include the package name at all.

It wants you to do a "chkconfig -add" in %post; this doesn't necessarily enable
the service - if you have "-" for the default runlevels then the service will be
disabled by default.

The initscript in the source is rather old-fashioned. I'll attach a new one to
this report shortly.

The chkconfig line in the initscript specifies default runlevels of 2345, so a
"chkconfig -add imapproxy" will enable the service in those runlevels.

The initscript doesn't track state by creating a /var/lock/subsys/in.imapproxyd
file when running.

> W: up-imapproxy incoherent-init-script-name imapproxy

Neither do I. You can't completely get rid of the incoherency because the
package is called up-imapproxy and the actual daemon is called in.imapproxyd, so
I'd leave this as it is.

More suggestions coming soon...
