Default Review request: new package (zfuzz), "new" maintainer

Could anyone review my new package (zfuzz), a "Type-checker and LaTeX style for the Z spec language"? It's a small package; bugzilla at:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=452559

I'm not new to Linux or OSS, but this is my first RPM submission to the Fedora repository,
so review and sponsorship would be great. (Yes, I already set FE-NEEDSPONSOR).

Its rpmlint is clean, it mock-builds on F9 i386, and I believe it meets all
Fedora guidelines and review items. Rationale, etc., are in comments in the .spec file.
I know that it also builds on x86_64 rawhide.
The only thing that I know needs doing is testing on PPC, but I'll just
exclude those architectures if they don't work.

BTW, I think that the documentation for _creating_ Fedora RPMs was awful.
So I created a page on the Wiki for those who are creating their first RPM package,
so that others who want to create Fedora RPMs have a fighting chance:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/CreatingPackageHowTo
If anyone else wants to make improvements to that, that'd be great.

Just out of curiosity, why didn't you continue work on the Building
Packages Guide[1] that's already a draft in the Docs project?

Having read both, it seems to me that
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/CreatingPackageHowTo
is more complete, though some generic information in the first case
study in
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Drafts/BuildingPackagesGuide
could be used in the other page. The case studies are also interesting,
maybe what is generic in this page should be merged to the other one and
only the case studies would be left, and it would become a page with
case studies?

I think that some merge between the two document could be useful.
But i have a simple question about http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/CreatingPackageHowTo



Why it is referenced, to the end the document,* only rpm5.org* as* a* fork, probably it is because it is not the fedora rpm version but i don't know much about,* if* also suse or mandriva have their rpm fork and* different implementation :


- fedora, suse, mandriva have different macros so interoperability is an issue

(http://www.mail-archive.com/rpm-maint@lists.rpm.org/msg00942.html)
- suse have "patch" rpm, different dependency capability (e.g. Obsolete can't be a capability just an example ) - in fedora we have not such restriction


- Mandriva now almost use another rpm code base of rpm 4.4.2, use some patch not upstrem now as file trigger and probably other
http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Rpm_filetriggers



Not to write about other distro - PLD, ARK ecc.

Thanks in advance for your reply

Not really. There are some patches which haven't been merged upstream
but those distributions have been working with rpm.org to do so.
