First I will do the library. But then there is the data. The data is about

For this extended timespan the ephemeris requires 32 Mbytes of ephemeris
files.

My question is this is there a lowest common denominator rpm format that can
represent pure data (and a few text licensing files) and be understood by
all
distros?

How would you get the build service to produce such rpms?

After you produced them how would you get the build service to serve them
for
all rpm based distros?

I have the same issue with my projects, which have ~300M of data which
isn't distro-dependant.

Build a noarch RPM, without script usage and without special rpm requires.
