It's reallly hard to do good RPM spec files. If cloudera are willing to 
pay Matt to do it, not only do I welcome it, but will see if I can help 
him with some of the automated test setup they'll need.

One thing which would be useful would be to package up all of the hadoop 
functional tests that need a live cluster up as its own JAR, so the test 
suite could be run against an RPM installation on different Virtual 
OS/JVM combos. I've just hit this problem with my own RPMs on Java6 
(java security related), so know that having the ability to use the 
entire existing test suite against an RPM installation would be be 
beneficial (both in my case and for hadoop RPMS)
