Right now we support the following distributions:
Mac OS X PPC and i386 (Intel)
Windows (tested on XP and Vista, and it should work on Windows 2000 too)
Linux PPC, i386 and AMD64

I think they are the most commonly used configurations and we should
concentrate on these one. There no need to build a Linux (x86/Motif) version
if nobody needs it. If someone uses Linux (x86/Motif) and tells us on the ML
he would like a version of Studio, then we can integrate this one.

They are varying depending on the version of RCP your looking at:

Yes, it's based on 3.2.1 at the moment. This is because we could not get a
way to generate (within eclipse) the executables for Apache Directory Studio
(to replace the 3.2.1 ones) with Eclipse 3.3.0. I could not export the RCP
Application as a Mac OS X application correctly, the export was failing...
Maybe version fixes that, I'll have to try again.

It would be very great if we could migrate both Ant+Ivy to Maven and Eclipse
version 3.2.1 to Eclipse version 3.3.x (for our Eclipse dependencies).

Now, that you prepared all the packages in their Maven repository format,
why not. But I wonder if that will be ok with the repository and the Eclipse

FYI, I have updated the page with our discussion (I need to update it with
the comments of this mail too).
