	Eventually, yes. However, there is still a lot of refining and 
adjustment that can be done on my current .spec files, and if you don't 
mind I'd like to maintain control over it for a couple more releases 
before that happens. I am getting good feedback and comments right now, 
and have a couple of unanswered questions about how to make things a 
little smoother accross all different platforms.
	What makes RPMS particularly difficult (especially for Zaptel 
modules) is that they need to be built to a specific kernel. The .spec 
file does a good job figuring that you when you build it right now, but 
there are other things I want to add to it to make it a lot more "dummy 
proof" as it were.
	Particularly, I'd like to add version and dependency checking 
beyond what RPM auto-generates, and I'd like people to actually make some 
suggestions for how to improve the build process.

All that being aside, you can grab .spec files from .src rpms if you want 
to take a look at them.
