[Fedora-packaging] OpenSuse / Fedora Packaging Compatibility?

The ACE+TAO dev team currently has two different spec files for 
generating RPMs.  One has been oriented towards Fedora/Redhat build 
environments and the other is used in the OpenSuse build environment.

The temptation is to make them the same (they are pretty similar).

Are there any unreconcilable differences between OpenSuse packaging and 
Fedora Packaging?

More importantly, are there any examples of packages which currently use 
the same spec file (perhaps with platform conditional blocks) for both 
distributions?  We'd sure love to use them as an example ...

Many thanks in advance!
