As far as official releases are concerned, this should be decided by Phil
and Jim. I wouldn't mind to be linked on their sites, and willing
to take over some organizational tasks on Sourceforge/Freshmeat.
In my opinion, we should crosslink the resources, and try to get more
public attention with freshmeat entries. I thought about publishing the
rpm availability on Freshmeat, but hesitated to not interfere on such
actions with our masters. Phil, Jim, opinions?

You convinced me, that "the simpler, the better" approach is far superior,
and recreated the rpms to conform with it. I will try to convince Adrian
Schroeter, the SuSE package maintainer, to create similar package layouts.
