    Spec files are much too distro specific, they all contain custom
    distro variables, reference package names which are not the same
    across distros. They usually don't even agree on the directories the
    stuff is installed into. The usb.ids file as an example, is in a
    different location on every distro i have seen. :)

    There is in most cases no point in keeping outdated spec files or
    debian directories in upstream source packages. The best when updating
    a package, is to start with the one that is in the source rpm of the
    distro one uses.
