great, this is just what it should be. IMHO the link is not needed (and
I am not sure it is persistent), but please add the name of the original
* Initial Fedora package inspired by work from Foo Bar for

Keep up the good work,
In my opinion packaging consists of
a) sorting out dependencies
b) sorting out files to install and location where ot install
c) using the distribution specific methods to achieve the above.
For that reason existing src rpm independent of its source are a big time
saver. Not making use of the information in the existing spec files (a,b and
maybe c) is wasting time.
