This talk will address the main issues related to building RPM packages, and additionally several topics will be discussed that are essential for delivering high-quality packages. The basic elements of an RPM spec file will be shown and for each section a number of hints and tricks will be given to enhance the quality of the resulting package. This will include the use of macros, adapting a package for installing it in an alternative root directory, ensuring correct file ownerships and attributes, and the proper use of pre/post (un)installation and "trigger" scripts. Many real-life examples will be used for illustrating the problems one can encounter and how to solve them in the best way. Also packaging non-free, binary software for internal use will be discussed.
