      Description

      RPM packaging eases the installation and deployment of Kafka to make it much more standard.

      I noticed in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-1324 Jay Kreps closed the issue because other sources provide packaging.  I think it's worthwhile for the standard, open source project to provide this as a base to reduce redundant work and provide this functionality for users.  Other similar open source software like Elasticsearch create an RPM https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/blob/0ad3d90a36529bf369813ea6253f305e11aff2e9/distribution/packages/build.gradle.  This also makes forking internally more maintainable by reducing the amount of work to be done for each version upgrade.

      I have a patch to add this functionality that I will clean up and PR on Github.
