I don't think it will be a problem for the RPM package, just a small change.

I have always sendt both .rpm and src.rpm to Andreas when a new release arrived.
The src.rpm file also contains the .spec file.
The olsrd init file (installed as /etc/init.d/olsrd) is embedded inside the .spec file for 
RPM at least.

I see no problem adding the RPM spec file in CVS, actually I think it would be smart to do 
it like this. Everyone with access to CVS would have access to the package files and the 
package files would be under version control also.

Someone need to decide on a package directory in the source tree where we can put these 
package files.
Example: olsrd-current/packages/rpm, olsrd-current/packages/deb and so on?
