Hi, I noticed that in revised haskell guidelines , there is mentioned the ghc-rpm-macros package, which provides macros.ghc file, which in turns 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.
