If there were some changes to the RPM generation script which would be useful in the future (such as making it easier to dump a new INI file into the SRPM), then I would say yes.

The stuff is a few updates to the specfile and a slightly modified script to copy 3 *.patch files to the SOURCES directory so that they can be used in Patch[012]: and %patch[012] clauses in the specfile. I didn't bother making it generic. These 3 patches update the .ini file included in the 1.4.1 tarball.

So if it's not worthwhile, I don't need to commit this stuff. All the INI changes are on the trunk and slated to go over to the branches; it'll just take time to get a formal release out with these patches.
