	I know that Packman hasn't updated from 1.5.1 to 1.5.2, either.  Because the 
release is so new, however, they may have just not had time to build.
	I have sent Joachim a package for FC3 and am about to send FC4 packages.  
Right now I have 5 more blank partitions (7 total), 10 GB each, for 
installing vanilla distros.  I can probably get away with using 5 GB 
partitions instead of 10 GB.  (Each Fedora install so far was about 3.5 GB, 
including extra libs and such in case I need to compile GnomeSword or 
something).  In this case, I would have 12 more (14 total) to use.
	What other distros would be useful?  Should I do SuSE? (I already have DVDs 
or DVD ISO images for 9.0-9.3, and can easily download 10.0)  This wouldn't 
be difficult, but if Packman already has it taken care of, then to do so 
would be pointless.  Mandrake/Mandriva may not be difficult, since it is also 
an RPM distro.  Would there be a point to doing FC2 or FC1 builds, or are 
they too old?
	Debian and Ubuntu are APT-based and use dpkg for what I would be doing.  I 
don't think I have time to learn a new system to get those working.  You'd 
probably be best getting someone who can add the packages to the official 
repository for those distros, anyway.
