+1 - as long as the location is configurable.  OpenShift typically keeps 
its pos_file in the log directory (e.g. /var/log) that is mounted from 
the host.

+1 - gem2rpm for starters.  But watch out because gem2rpm will sometimes 
generate too many Requires and BuildRequires which aren't really needed, 
and will miss some Requires and BuildRequires, and see
