Sure. It is impressive. I already know because have already tried some
time ago on fedora e suse. The principal problem remain : wants sat
solver become a project cross distribution or not? The project rpm is
already - with some local difference btw, but this don't change what i
have said. Do think the author of SAT solvers that an open source
cross platform solution could be beneficial to everyone, and to  the
sat solver  project itself ? A project is a project, a distro is
another thing. But i perhaps asked in different word the same question
alreay asked : no answer. A good open source project should have more
widespread audience instead to be tied to issues that perhaps are not
so technical in nature.
