Some thoughts on how I would suggest to manage these specs:

- We should have one directory per package, and store in that directory
the template for the .spec file, the build script and also the potential

- We should have one git branch for each major version of the RPM
distributions that we support. This is what the build systems of Fedora
and RHEL do, for example. So we should have branches like fc19, fc20,
el6, el7, etc. This way it is possible to have different specs for
different distributions without having to use multiple "if fedora/if
rhel" in the spec itself.

- I would even suggest to move the .spec files out from the main
repositories of other components and into this repository. In particular
I would like to do that for the SDKs and the CLI (that is why I
initially suggested to name it "ovirt-specs").
