like is for someone who's rather more experienced at packaging,
which wouldn't take much really, to have a look at the spec files and

Looks good to me (looking at alienpool.spec at the moment), in fact it
looks better than most of my .specs :)
Well, I will admit that it's not all my work. I actually based the spec
files on the pre-existing Mandrake spec files, although I did have to
re-write quite a few bits. The alienpool.spec was the most "fun" to
adapt as I first needed to figure out all the %_games*dir macros, then I
ended up completely re-writing the %install section as it didn't work,
and then I finished by correcting the %files section. That was after
having to start afresh with all the autoconf tools so that I could make
a new "configure" that worked.
Aircrack.spec was also based on a Mandrake spec file, which I updated to
a newer source. I made a mistake in the %changelog section for that as,
when I updated the source, I used ctrl-k and ctrl-u and then edited
that line, instead of ctrl-k, ctrl-u and ctrl-u, and editing the first
line and adding a line underneath. I've corrected that mistake and the
proper changelog should now be there.
(That said mine tend to be based on the internal SUSE
for .spec files and I'm too lazy to change ;))
 nano delete and "undo" delete.
 not to start another editor flame-fest...
