I wanted to use RPMs as the package format for my various personal perl libs. These would have dependencies pulled from CPAN, as well as dependencies on each other.
I've looked through the RPM::Specfile and cpanflute2. To be honest it wasn't clear what cpanflute2 did (does it try to generate a Specfile)? The RPM guide for developers (max RPM) seems pretty good, but it seems like a lot of it is addressing compiled sources (I guess perl is just a lot easier since you don't have to compile it).
It would be great if I could use this as the basis of deployment for a production system (RedHat). But it's not clear to me what the various issues are or how to structure things. I was going to deconstruct some of the fedora perl RPMs and see what I could glean.
Could someone who uses RPMs in this way give me some advice or point me to some examples?
