It would be totally great if we could have a Cocoon-1.7.3-1.noarch.rpm
package when Cocoon 1.7.3 is out. I mean, synchronize the packages. That
way, we could nominate you RPM-lord and give you write access on the
site so that you can maintain them.

that would mean having Cocoon as zip, tar.gz and rpm as official
distributions. It would be killer, don't you think?

Also, I would love to have Ant build the RPM for us. Something like

./ dist-rpm

and you're done, just like we do for zip and tar.gz... could you
investigate that and report what is missing if you fail?

And if this doesn't happen for 1.7.3 it doesn't matter, but we should
try to synch the efforts, don't you agree?

If we do, I'm more than willing to host those rpms on the official
cocoon distribution location.

How does it sound? anybody?
