Thanks Michael.  Good info.  I built using your 0.4.5 RPM's on my EL5
machine without issue.  A couple questions:

  - I'd be happy to create an EL-5 branch based on your RPM's, that
    would seem to make the most sense.  But do you have any interest in
    being the maintainer as you appear to be "upstream" in a way for
    the 0.4.5 branch
  - Where is this 0.4.5 CVS branch you mention?
  - Off-topic for EPEL, but it seems like maybe we should update this
    in Fedora 8 and 9 as well.  I use those systems for building to
    EPEL as well and the plague stuff in Fedora is still the Fedora 7
    package.

Thanks again,
Ray
