Sorry for the delay on this Enrico. :(

I think you addressed all of Paul's comments. 
I will give another day or two to solicit any additional comments before I
approve the package. 

In particular one of the tor developers mailed me asking if the package could be
closer to the upstream spec (I think he was refering to not having the -lsb
subpackage). I told him to comment here with any concerns he had. 

I could see the -lsb subpackage causing problems for upstream. If they link to
the extras rpms from their web page and someone downloads the main rpm, they
could easily miss the tor-lsb link and get confused trying to install it. If
they build from the src.rpm and don't make sure and also install the tor-lsb
package they could get confused. 
The message you get when trying to install just the main tor rpm is not very
helpfull to neophyte user: 

error: Failed dependencies:
        init(tor) is needed by tor-0.1.0.16-0.fc5.i386

Would you reconsider again the tor-lsb subpackage? While it might be useful for
your local env, it's not what most fedora users would expect. NO other package
that I can see does things this way either. Perhaps once init-ng gets accepted
we should start looking at moving packages to a setup like this, but right now
it just makes this package not work as people expect.
