Packaging guidelines: buildroot



So, in the guidelines, it states that all packages should use:

%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-%{%{__id_u} -n}

What does this have to do with the package? Nothing.

Why is this in the guidelines? Why are we putting this in spec
files? All this does is give the developer a chance to manually
enter information that they can get wrong. It's not like the build
system will even use this value.

Why isn't this the default for RPM, either patched into the default
RPM package, or in redhat-rpm-config?
