Hi Mamoru,

I've picked this up and there were some very useful hints in the spec 
you linked me. I'm just about to finish this package up for initial 
review submission along with the required rubygem-rake... Can I add you 
to the CC: when I submit it and ask you if you can take a sneak peak at 
the .spec file before anyone else sinks his teeth into the review?

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen
