I love a challenge!

So sort of a BSD-style license.

Will do.

Right now you have a bunch of dshield config files, including the main
file and all the auxiliary filters. To avoid cluttering /etc, I
recommend putting these in a new directory, /etc/dshield. The default
dshield.cnf needs the paths changed to match.

Following the conventions of other RPM's, I expect to make all files
owned by root, and I'll run the process from /etc/cron.daily. I'll
rename the scripts to (for example) dshield-iptables.pl to allow them to
be installed to /usr/sbin unambiguously.

I'll put the test stuff in /usr/share/doc/dshield where RPM's typically
install examples.

I'll make each parser a separate subpackage.
