thanks a lot for preparing the fc3 nd fc4 packages! That's really helpful and 
will make the installation possible for a lot new users.

BTW, is is possible to offer bibletime-i18n packages for fc3 and fc4 as well? 
That package contains the translations. That would be awesome.
We got a spec file in bibletime-i18n, but I dont know how well that works.

I think packman will do the update in the next few days.

Brook Humphrey usually did the Mandrake packages, but I think the last ones 
were for 1.4.1. And I haven't been in contact with him for a while now.
Does anybody know if 1.5.x is in available in Mandriva contribs? If that is 
not the case we should probably offer those as well.

Daniel Glassey does the official Debian packages. An ubuntu package is 
probably not difficult with the debian rules of his packages. Perhaps I can 
find the time for that.

I guess further discussion about the packages is best in bt-devel.
