Hi Robert,

There is a script to generate it, but it's part of the waf rpm build
script. Essentially you run that within a working source directory and
builds a tarball and runs rpmbuild -bb cloud.spec against it. So the
easiest way is to just tar up the source contents, or you can grab any
of the tarballs from any of the tags here:

My goal is to get rid of waf (which is currently how RPMs/DEBs are
built) and end up using ant for build and install. Right now waf does
a considerable amount of the install piece. I have a working spec to
build with ant - but haven't gotten all of the waf specific stuff back
into the any deploy target yet, so the spec while it works looks like
a mass of cp -a statements.
