Well, the RPMs can have different guidelines depending on the
distribution they are made for. So the official RPMs are packaged in
Fedora [1], CentOS Storage SIG [2] and other distribution specific
repositories. The distributions are responsible for verification of the
packages they ship.

But, we could do something like this for the included .spec. The nightly
builds [3] can be consumed by other tests. It is possible to download
the RPMs and run "rpmlint" and other verification tools on them. It is
relatively straight forward to write a script that we can include as a
job in the CentOS CI [4]. The gluster_libgfapi-python script [5] can be
taken as an example.

Anyone is more than welcome to send me scripts that I can wrap in the
needed CentOS CI Jenkins environment. Depending on the time that the
tests need, we can run them every night, week, or whatever. If needed we
can run them upon each patch submission, but we'll probably need to
request a higher resource limit in that case.

I guess you could request an RPM-verification test [6], but please add
some details on what tools you would like to see used. At the moment
there are very few contributors helping out with the running of
automated tests, so do not have too high expectations on when someone
gets around to write+test a script from scratch.
