I'd just like say, I'd have never used disttags if I wasn't forced to.  

There was some errors I was getting in trying to commit and build some 
package and the "recommendation" was to just use disttags.  That worked 
so I never really thought about it since then.

So for my case, it didn't really offer anything for me that makes it a 
"success"; just something I had to do to get my packages to continue 
through the build system.
