yup ! as per the patch i attached, if you combine that with Olaf's, we now
can build spark 1.1 , and package spark-submit into the rpm, which is also necessary.
Just two things to be done, after applying the above 2 patches.
(1) Need to add the equivalent of my patch's updates into deb as well
(2) need to run a smoke test to make sure spark still works.
otherwise, i think its pretty close ! ill look into it more this wk
