Well, I can tell you that their trac is definitely active. I put in a
ticket for one of my long-time pet-peeves (that every spec has to have a
%clean with rm -rf %{buildroot} when it should be a sane default,
overridden if necessary by defining it) and they recently implemented that.

Best I can say is to open the ticket, and offer suggestions on how you
feel it should be handled.
