Packaging Alfresco with RPM

I'm packaging up Alfresco for our environment using RPM and have some questions related to that:

1. there's a ton of jars in
alfresco/WEB-INF/lib/
with external libraries. My question is whether I can use JPackage provided packages for those instead and remove bundled ones. Is there a guide somewhere which ranges of versions of libraries would work with Alfresco? Reason is: we have environment where the whole J2EE stack comes from RPM packages and whenever there's a need to update library (security vulnerability or bugfix etc.) we do it system-wide which is opposite of how alfresco is bundled (I took the smallest bundle - WAR file).

2. is anybody interested in results (RPMs of Alfresco-Enterprise) ?

3. If there is interest in RPMs is it OK to post it including Alfresco-Enterprise bundles or should I strip out those leaving it up to end-users to download bundles from Alfresco and build their own RPMs using our SPEC files ?
