Packaging for beginners?

I just cut and pasted together my first spec file and made an rpm for the development version of Inkscape and I'd like to more about packaging. (The stable Inkscape release has broken deps and it's src.rpm has compile errors with the current gcc.)
For me the online documentation for Fedora packaging is either too brief to be helpful, or lists _everything_ and is only helpful for those already experienced. I was wondering if there was an inbetween tutorial website that anyone can recommend. Thanks

And here's also the Fedora Draft documentation about RPM:

Re: Packaging for beginners?

Ok thanks for the suggestions. I guess _everything_ is the way to go, and just learn a little bit at a time.
