O come on! It's mostly the same commands you issue on the command line
plus a few lines in the header and you have tons of examples plus the
documentation in the opensuse wiki.

According to this:
http://en.opensuse.org/SUSE_Build_Tutorial#Step_Five_-_Create_the_spec_file
the spec file is " a complex topic" that refers me to here:

....

Removing checkinstall may have made sense given the reasons.... but it
does leave a huge gap between those on the inside who are familiar
with the RPM build process and those lurking on the fringes. If it is
removed, fine, but there really needs to be a replacement... either
CLEAR non-developer documentation explaining the exact steps with no
fluff or long winded explanations.. or a full app/script replacement.

Absolutely!

+1 to all that you said.
