How about marking config files also as noreplace? And I really don't
think that this package should own /etc/bash_completion.d/ because it is
already owned by the bash-completion package.
How about using a trigger for the bash-completion stuff like I have seen
it in other packages (mpc).

I would also rather see a package without a dependency on
%{_sbindir}/sendmail, is this possible?

The Requires can also be shorted: rpm-build requires perl, patch, mktemp
coreutiles requires grep, findutils so that at least the Requires on
perl, patch, mktemp, grep and findutils could be removed.

The %description is a bit unusual for Fedora packages because I haven't
seen that the Authors are mentioned in any other description. I have only seen
this in suse packages and it looks a bit odd.
