I'm not sure how much it's actually going to be under the control of the
maintainer.  To be able to do the switch sanely (especially with the
build system bits), it's going to largely have to be a big change
everything at once.

Also, the confusion of "anaconda is on cvs.fedora, rhpl is on the
internal cvs server" is just too much for me...
