that is a bad attitude in general

everytime i hear people argue that way sooner or later
i hear "shit it did matter and i realized too late"

why do you not have a normal user on that VM at all
including the "golden-master" VM from which you
can clone others - sorry but for type ./configure
as root exists no excuse

frankly if you have a proper rpm spec you don't need to
care about anything but drop the new tarball in the
SOURCES folder, edit the version number in the SPEC
and you are done
