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