I've seen this method floating around too:
Vendor: PyVault Repository <http://python.org/pyvault>
Packager: Jeff Pitman <symbiont at berlios.de>
As these are in .rpmmacros, I'd also assume Distribution is defined in
the same manner. Although, I haven't done this yet. For mach, this
also needs to go in ~/.machrc in config['macros']. Since rpmbuild is
executed within and without the chroot, watch out for that.
I'm still very interested in converging on a standard, so I hope that no
one gives up on this stuff. Would be nice to have some documentation
on this; though, more discussion is needed. Remember, don't
underestimate the power in numbers. We're not Fedora, but we can still
make an influence. Besides, these are issues Fedora would rather avoid
talking about altogether.
