Hi Kaushal.

You might also find the RPM documentation usefull.


I found this guide was very helpfull:


The bit about signing packages is out of date, it was 
written using PGP, but that is now replaced with GPG.

Apart from that it is a pretty good guide to using RPM, and 
how to build packages as well.
