Hi Viji,
This sounds very interesting.

I suggest touch base with Mathieu from the Enterprise Linux packaging 
efforts, who are packaging for redhat. I assume that between your two 
projects there will be much that you can share.

I've involved in the OSGeo-Live packaging effort, which has packaged 42 
of the best geospatial open source applications on top of Ubuntu, 
including all the OSGeo incubated projects.
Of particular interest would be our shell install scripts which you 
should be able to copy in order to create your rpm installers, and also 
the documentation which projects are creating for us which you will 
likely be interested in copying too.
http://live.osgeo.org (for docs)
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc (our main wiki)
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Add_Project (provides links to our 
build scripts)

Good luck, I'm interested to hear how things go.
