I don't have enough disk space nor knowledge for a virtual instance.
And I wouldn't trust a distant service (not to mention that I won't 
pay for the free software I do).

Ok, I'll send you my build needs, it should be very very rare anyway,

As a side note, tetex-lineno is only for EL-4, I'd be in favor of 
dropping wdm it is dead upstream and too complicated, in my opinion,
to be maintained only in fedora. Some of my former fedora packages 
should be added, like bes (though it is still orphaned in fedora), 
gnash.

Indeed. Manuel, for example is co-maintainer of some of them and is in 
EPEL.
