Having a base ::Rpm class would make sense. To me, it seems to break
out into (and I'm stating the obvious here):
* code to interact with a given dist and figure out "stuff" about it,
e.g. license, status, etc
* code to handle the basics of taking that, generating a spec, and
running rpm against it
* distro-specific spec template(s)
* distro-specific overrides to build behaviour
Using Template::Toolkit to deal with the spec templates will hopefully
help, in terms of keeping the spec generation somewhat distinct from
determining the relevant information from the dist.
What's the next step? Note I assume you don't mind me helping out :-)
