Building RPM from svn checkout (of 1.0.1 tag) fails

I checked out v1.0.1 from the svn tag and tried to build it using python bdist_rpm

It failed with the following msg:

hard linking extras/django_bash_completion -> Django-1.0.1-final/extras
hard linking scripts/ -> Django-1.0.1-final/scripts
tar -cf dist/Django-1.0.1-final.tar Django-1.0.1-final
gzip -f9 dist/Django-1.0.1-final.tar
removing 'Django-1.0.1-final' (and everything under it)
copying dist/Django-1.0.1-final.tar.gz -> build/bdist.linux-x86_64/rpm/SOURCES
building RPMs
rpmbuild -ba --define _topdir /var/software/django/1.0.1/build/bdist.linux-x86_64/rpm --clean build/bdist.linux-x86_64/rpm/SPECS/Django.spec
error: File /var/software/django/1.0.1/build/bdist.linux-x86_64/rpm/SOURCES/Django-1.0.1_final.tar.gz: No such file or directory
error: command 'rpmbuild' failed with exit status 1

Upon further investigation, this is because of a mis-match between the version string generated by setuptools and written into the spec file:

%define version 1.0.1_final

and code in

version = __import__('django').get_version()
if u'SVN' in version:
    version = ' '.join(version.split(' ')[:-1])

    name = "Django",
    version = version.replace(' ', '-'),

which generates a version of 1.0.1-final

Notice that one uses _ (underscore) while the other uses - (hyphen).

I fixed this by changing version.replace(' ', '-') to version.replace(' ', '_') in, but I don't know enough about the rest of your naming convention to determine whether or not this is an appropriate fix.
