[swish-e] Swish-e RPMS and Swishetest on Fedora 8 and 9

Hello, All:

I'm writing about two issues. One is purely related to building RPMs, 
and the other also relates to Swishetest.

As some of you probably know, I've automated building swish-e rpms 
from the daily sources-- currently, rpms for centos 4 and 5 are 
built, both for swish-e 2.4 and 2.6, and for i386 and x86_64.

I've also automated testing the resulting swish-e binaries daily with 
the Swishetest test suite I wrote. (Link:;O=D , source at )

Recently, I've been looking into building rpms and testing on Fedora 
9. I'm running into the following two problems.

The first problem is that rpmbuild & mock in Fedora 9 are apparently 
stricter about installed files, and swish-e rpms fail to build with 
the following errors:

  Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files 
  Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:
  RPM build errors:
     File not found by glob: 
     Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

I'm not sure how to resolve this error. Perhaps Bill or David has some insight?

The second problem is that some of perl code included with Swish-e 
requires HTML::FillInForm, but this module is not packaged into rpms 
in the default f8 and f9 repositories. Perhaps the related perl code 
can be modified not to require that particular perl module?

Interested to hear feedback,
