Everyone's welcome to suggest additions to rpmdevtools.  But it would not hurt 
to have another similar but less development oriented package of nifty 
scripts around.

There's also http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/UsefulScripts

Oh, and qa-robot from ALT Linux has a bunch of useful looking things 
(especially rpmsodiff) that I've meant to take a look at but haven't got 
around to it yet, anyone interested?  Some of them might require some 
cleanup/changes to be generally applicable outside of ALT Linux.
