Did you create a single spec to build the rpms for the whole office?
This would be nice, to see how you managed the obsoletes, and split the
packages. Unfortunately, with the exception of the desktop-integration
packages, we cannot use rpm/dpkg directly; the code defines the list of
files to be included in a home-made, cross-platform way, on
trunk/main/scp2; then you have the files that bind the definitions in
scp2 with a rpm/deb package, in main/setup_native/source/packinfo/, the
format is described here

The package information is the same for RPMs and DEBs. At the end, the
build environment puts all these peaces together, generates a package
configuration file and calls EPM.

As you see, the process is cumbersome and not very easy to
