Fedora Extras RPMs should have Vendor and Packager?

I just was doing rpm -qi on a few packages, and noticed that packages built in Extras don't have a vendor associated with them.

Not that anybody ever really looks at these things, but we should probably set up the extras build system so that it prefills the vendor pertaining to Fedora somehow. We might also want to add "Packager"

`rpm -qi` is not that uncommon a task, and it would be subtle self-advertising. Push that brand, push it hard!

Output for a package from Core vs Extras:
