fedora:tomcat.spec or jpackage:tomcat7.spec ? Just curious about the
starting point. My idea was to grab Fedora's spec and massage it into
submission. Main point (aside from libraries & their versions) would
probably be the startup script as RHEL doesn't use systemd. But that
should be easy to address and possibly plead for conditional SPEC file
with RHEL-based builds using init.d startup vs Fedora's systemd.
However it's still unclear whether EPEL would be the place for such
build as RHN offers tomcat7 under JBoss channel which may be in conflict
with EPEL guidelines.

hmm. My past experience with Jpackage+RHEL was a mixed bag with
conflicting packages and rather peculiar resulting install sets (mix of
RHEL and Jpackage rpm's). Have you used "yum-plugin-priorities" to get
around those conflicts?
