April 16, 2002 Original perl module released, based on my (also CPAN contributed) script "make_rpm.pl". Works well on RedHat 6.* and RedHat 7.* and is compatible with both rpm version 3.* and rpm version 4.*. May 16, 2002 Fixing a bug in Make.pm to allow customization of the RPM group (such as Utilities/System or Applications/Editors). Minor improvements throughout the module. Documenting subroutines more clearly. Supporting multiple smaller steps in test.pl. Support handling of different architectures other than i386. June 17, 2002 Fixing several bugs: no more duplication of $group variable name; no more hardcoding of RPM release number; accommodating rpm version >4.0.2 command-line syntax; fixing pre example in POD synopsis. The 'clean' target now cleans up rpms made during testing as well as TempBuildLoc. June 30, 2002 Changing e-mail address to email@example.com. Testing for rpm command in Makefile.PL so as to test successfully against multiple architectures. July 3, 2002 Fine-tuning the documentation. September 11, 2002 Supporting dashes inside RPM name (previously, only alphanumeric characters were supported). October 2, 2002 POD fix (incorporating an =back statement to correspond with the =over statements). Making backwards compatible with GNU find 4.1.6 or earlier by replacing -prune argument with -maxdepth 0 argument. December 18, 2002 Now accommodating >4.1 command-line syntax (requires the rpmbuild command). Also, more expansive character set, such as with '++' (which was being eaten up by regular expressions).
