Packager weekend

Tags: [ Hacking ] [ GNU/Linux ] [ PFT ]

Following my personal goal of getting more involved in Free Software, I'm currently trying to package PFT for Fedora. I have to say this is not as straightforward as I expected.

I've found plenty of online material, some of which is Perl specific. Some things are however not clear, so I also sought for help on freenode.

I'm currently in the weird position of being able to construct a package for PFT in the way I think it should work, having it consistent with other similar packages (in terms of target directories for Perl modules and documentation). Still, for some reason my .spec file looks different than other packages I've tried.

Probably I'm not good enough with RTFM.
