Running rpmlint is part of the process but hardly covers everything. To 
figure out whether the package has all the right dependencies specified, 
we use mock which tries to build the package within a chroot. 
review-o-matic can glue together many things such as rpmlint and mock as 
well as do additonal checks on top of this.
