Unless you are willing to read the source, www.rpm.org is one of the
best resources. Sad, but true.
And if you are talking about rpm-devel list, that is a common misconception.
That is not a package builders list, but a list for the people who are
coding rpm itself (main developers, contributors etc). You can get some
help there regarding package building, because, if see, people there
know how rpm works. But that is usually frowned uppon.
