I noticed that in revised haskell guidelines [1], there is mentioned the

provides some useful macros for packaging of Haskell packages. In Ruby,
we provide similar macro files in ruby-devel and rubygems-devel
subpackages respectively. Perl has their macros directly in the rpm
package itself.

This seems to be a bit inconsistent to me. So my question is: shouldn't
we standardize some best practices with regards of RPM macros? For
example for Ruby, we placed the macros into -devel subpackages, because
we believe that it is just development dependency. Any opinions?



It depends what you need to do. Part of Perl macros is in a special package perl-srpm-macros, which is required by redhat-rpm-config. We should have all macros defined in perl-srpm-macros in buildroot everytime, which was one of our issues during annual rebuild.
