Thank you!

I was about to suggest that we check where Red Hat's distros install
wiper.sh and consider using the same location (avoid unneeded
differences), but surprisingly they don't appear to package this script.

http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=hdparm.git;a=tree

It is very nice that you noticed and added the wiper/README.txt file as
well.

Instead of:

install -m 755 wiper/wiper.sh $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/sbin

we'd normally use something like:

install -p -m755 wiper/wiper.sh %buildroot/sbin/

(BTW, the existing "install" lines unnecessarily list the filenames
twice - this may be corrected.)

I'll provide a new task separately.

Thanks again,
