As the maintainer of the ROOT package in the Fedora Linux distribution and in the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository, I have encountered a number of challenges when applying the Fedora packaging guidelines to the ROOT software. In this presentation I will discuss some of these challenges and how they were addressed when creating the packages. I will also bring up some outstanding issues that if solved would make the packaging of the software easier.
