Hmmm. I tend to think we can safely assume people have yum or up2date
installed. If somebody is using smart then we can start shipping smart
repo files in the packages, too.

I'm quite sure that we'll use the same key.

I'd say go without docs for now -- or is anybody willing to write
something up? Maybe just copy a bit of stuff from the wiki and point to
the wiki for more informations might be enough already. Ohh, and I don't
think we need a eula (quiad, speak up if we need one).
