Cool.  In case some of your changes would be beneficial to the specfile
shipped with the validator, don't hesitate to send them my way.

I took a brief look into your specfile, and noticed that you're allowing
checking documents on private IP's by default.  Probably you did that on
purpose and for a reason, but the default of _not_ allowing that is also
on purpose in the validator dist tarballs... ;)

One thing you may want to check: I don't know if SuSE has SELinux, but
if it does, it's very likely that their targeted policy files need
adaptation so that the validator will work.  This is why the Fedora
Extras packages aren't currently available, we're working on it...

Sure, just let us know when you're ready and what's their preferred
download location.
