Got a new package I'm working on. One of the requirements of this package is to have additional services defined, so at the moment I've added some embedded awk to the %post of the spec file which does this fine.

However, I'm not convinced this is the best or even Fedora way of achieving this. I can't find any help out there in the docs so I would like to get this approach confirmed before I put this package forward.

Thanks, Jon

Sed is fine. So is Lua. Here is one example of a spec already in the repository

Great, hoped I wasn't going down the wrong path with this.

Thanks for that,
