Rpm editor quick fixes hunt

As of today eclipse rpm editor has 2 new quickfixes:
* no-buildroot-tag - This simply adds a generic
Buildroot: %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root
* no-cleaning-of-buildroot - add rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT immediately after the %install section

If someone is reading this blog and have some ideas for additional rpmlint problems that are easily fixable in a crossdistro way please let me know.
Mandriva Cooker rpms will be available soon.
