a good time to start again :-)

i missed to tell another benefit: you have to specify every
installed file in the %files section, so you are aware of
changes in any folder-structure, as long it builds wtihout
complaining with a new source-version you can be pretty sure
all is sane

this time virtualization is a real improvement

* build packages outside production environment
* provide local repos in the own LAN
* setup testing machins with real data
* test upgrades with real data

in this life i will never ever setup a server on bare metal
without having VMware ESXi as backend (clone, snapshots..)
