Can you be more verbose on that one?

3 Examples:

1. He is running the autotools while building.
This renders building non-deterministic and exposes his packages to suffer from build breakdowns due to the autotools changing behaviour, rsp. due to the packages being tied to specific versions of the autotools.

2. Some of his packages contain abuses of %*dir variables.
e.g.:
%post
%{_bindir}/<someotherscript>

3. Some of his packages don't honor rpm input %*dir variables
(e.g. datadir), but rely on %{_prefix} only, despite they install to %{_datadir}

Instead of hand waving "its low quality"
