If you're going to package python stuff, it might be interesting to ask Jeff 
Pittman <symbiont at berlios.de> or symbiont  on freenet irc for a template.. he 
packages a lot of python stuff. 

is the template which i used for most of the perl packages.

Like Dag said, with grep you can find a lot of interesting stuff in the 
rpmforge spec files ;) I also use grep a lot so i can copy stuff like adding 
users in %pre.

kind regards,
