Is it really necessary to replace the spec file

perl version called mkspec? I personally learned to hate perl. Additionally to
my personal dislikes this introduces the first perl script that is necessary
to build our kernel package.
Is there any reason why we can't live with a shell version as we did before?
Besides that mkspec is broken and can't build the Kernel:Vanilla projects
anymore since it doesn't honor EXTRAVERSION properly.
What do you mean by this?
For the kernel build scripts it is important that the packaging reflects the
kernel release numbering scheme. Therefore EXTRAVERSION and files like
localversion* need to be honored for the naming of the rpm package. So for the
linux-next project I want the rpm to be called
kernel-default-2.6.28-next-20090107 where the -next-20090107 is coming from
the localversion-next file.
This is really important for our kernel to support this kind of
setups. Otherwise our scripting work is not usable for contributors not
interested in building default openSUSE kind of kernel packages.
