Changes for version 0.291

  • eighth alpha
  • The flags that are created from the rpm version are now passed for 3.0.X, as well.
  • A thread-safing bug was found and fixed in Header.xs. An unused variable was removed.
  • Makefile.PL has some large-scale work, including the addition of a template spec file following the __DATA__ token, code to expand this file using the values that MakeMaker has derived for the package, generation of make rules to construct *.rpm and *.srpm files, and generation of "rpmrc" and "rpmmacro" files to use in invoking rpm (to force all operation into the local dir area).
