Eveything is in PLD git repo, rpm and rpm-pld-macros on branch rpm.org


Everythong else on master (you need with rpm4 for poldek)

Thanks, but I'll stick with rpm-specdump and rpm-getdeps for now, switching to
rpmspec may require rewriting build tools. I don't want tp make too
many, possible breaking, changes at once.

There is also added bonus of forced PY2 -> PY3 transition for other
tools. rpm5 can't do PY3, rpm.org can't do PY2 :/
