Great. I notice a couple of points.

* The "packages/rpm/rhel-*" bundles need a thorough rewrite and should
not be used as is. I'm in the midst of writing some such tools for
RPMforge, and will be happy to submit them. A lot of the patches
previously needed have been been already incorporated, which helps.
The new structure, like others from RPMforge, auto-configs options for
different OS releases. David Sommerset's old work there was good, but
it had some traps.

* The compatiblity of Subverson 1.7 with older style working copies
without auto-updating them is much appreciated. I had one hell of a
time geting buyin to get people up to 1.6 with that auto-update
feature.making the upgrade irreversible, and people using shared home
directories across older and newer systems with different Subversion

* Is serf *preferred* over neon now? serf isn't in any of the
repositories for RHEL 5. It is in Fedora, and can probably be safely
backported. But I'm concerned for it being unstable or unsupported in
the long term, especially in older operating systems. I've got a
chance to add it or not for RPMforge as it stands.
