I was not aware of this discussion. If I can make a statement to help our friend naoliveira, get srpms already in our repos and try to update them/upgrade them.
One can learn a lot from this.
And regarding what our dear friend Archie wrote, yes, with time you are going to make a generic spec, that will work most of the times.
I have one like that, and it is serving me well with many packages.
Don't give up. There's still lots of great programs to bring over to PCLinuxOS repos.
Hoping to find all of our colleagues in good health and good mood,
I send my best regards,
