Release Notes: Directories from FHS (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard) are now removed from RPM packages to avoid problems on Fedora 20.
Release Notes: A new option (guess) has been added to fill all RPM metadata. Another option (debug) has been added to help developers. The Makefile was cleaned up (clean and dist targets).
Release Notes: In rootdir mode, name and version are guessed from the directory name. The compat option was added for compatibility with old rpm versions (digest). The default option was added to fill release and group with default values. The stdin option was added to get files from stdin. The config/doc rpm file attribute was improved with the ability to search from a pre-defined prefix list.
Release Notes: A bug that occurred when only files were passed to rpmerizor was fixed. Two new options were added: url and packager. RPM working directories are now tested and created if necessary. The rpmbuild dependency is also tested at the beginning of the script.
Release Notes: rpmbuild status is now analyzed and used for the script exit status. A new buildarch option was added for fixing RPM architecture. A rootdir option makes it possible to build an RPM package from a chrooted directory.
Release Notes: This is a major release. rpmerizor is now working as expected. All files under given directories are added to the resulting RPM package. Three new options were added: list_group, exclude, and man. The call to rpmbuild was simplified. The buildroot directory was changed to /tmp/rpmerizor_buildroot. The specfile was modified allow a package to be built outside rpmerizor (after a --spec_only option, for example).
Release Notes: Rpmerizor now accepts two new argument options: --sign, to sign the RPM package with your gpg key, and --spec_only, to only generate an RPM spec file. A man page was added in the RPM package. The code was reviewed to avoid external calls. If the spec file already exists, it is saved before a new one is created.
Release Notes: The utility was recoded to work with recent versions of RPM, fixing a buildroot problem. Options are added to print help, to allow batch mode, and to build src.rpm packages.
