hi,

is there any documentation available on how to build RPMs from the git sources?

we're currently investigating building the AppSuite backend RPMs from sources obtained according to

http://oxpedia.org/wiki/index.php?ti...urceCodeAccess

we have found sources and .spec files, but it is not clear to us how to create the necessary source tarballs required for the actual RPM build. besides that we also noted the .spec seem to contain some sort of macros, e.g.

Code:
Version:       @OXVERSION@

Release:       %{ox_release}_<CI_CNT>.<B_CNT>
which obviously need to be replaced by some mechanism.

can anybody shed some light on this?

thanks,

guenter
