Indeed, we need to agree to a common format and filename convention 
between Dries, Fabian and me.

My preferences goes to what I am using already:

  - A single compressed file per build:


    where the ok indicates a succesful build, and ko indicates a failure.

  - Headers containing general information about the build environment
  - A copy of the SPEC file
  - A copy of the (macros substituted) expanded SPEC file
  - The buildlog itself
  - Return code

That is what I use lately. The macros-substituted (expanded) version of 
the SPEC file is very handy to explain newcomers how macros work and 
affect the resulting SPEC file.

The file looks like this:
