Well, it didn't work just like that... but that is only because p4api is
I had to grab p4api.tar, and extract under p4api/*
Then I created MANIFEST.in:
and then `python setup.py bdist_rpm` did the right thing.
I documented what I did here:
And I also attached the SRPM for Linux 24x86. It's not a traditional
SRPM as it contains the p4api dist. Should really package p4api into an
RPM, then make it a BuildRequires, but that is a bit too grand for me to
take on right now.
Thanks for the hint about bdist_rpm ;-)
