Build rpms without requiring rpmbuild #54
rpmbuild isn't available on some systems without going through pains to install it manually.
The RPM format is poorly documented, but in general, it should be doable to generate RPMs directly from ruby instead of rpmbuild. This would also let me avoid any workarounds I might require to use rpmbuild.

This is the one thing keeping me from using fpm for rpm creation. Adding the pure ruby capability of writing rpm files would be exactly in line with the first bit of the README.
Should this issue be labeled with
@kevinkjt2000 I don't make much strong use of github issue labels in this project. If it comforts you, I can add a bug label.
Can you describe your situation more? What about rpmbuild prevents you from using it?
