cvs up builder
./builder yourpackagename

If you want the whole SPECS tree, run cvs up in the SPECS directory, and it'll download the ten thousand-odd spec files.

If you make changes, run the ./adapter script on the spec to check for sylistic glitches. Make sure that adapter is sane, though, since it can be over-aggressive. If the changes are generally useful, send the new spec (or better, a diff — one can be made with cvs diff file.spec) to the PLD developer's list

another tip
If you insert

%_topdir %(cd ..; pwd)

into your ~/.rpmmacros you can have the rpm subdirectory in any directory you can think of, not just in $HOME.
Just my $0.02 :)

Re: another tip
Sweet! That actually solved a problem of mine working with a separate DEVEL branch tree.
