Based on your answer, I'm not sure my point was clear:  we *have* an RPM we would like to put in a 'contrib' directory somewhere for others to use (or not, as they see fit).  Is there a place we could put it?

We haven't been putting up RPMs for RedHat because of compatibility
issues with rpm and run-time libraries.  That is, if we build an RPM for
RH 8.0, it's not likely to work with other RedHat versions, or even
upgraded RedHat 8.0 installations.  

If you look at rpmfind, you'll see distinct packages for each RedHat
version.  We don't currently have a setup to build all of those.

Eli Barzilay has suggested that he'd like to build RPMs for different
versions of RedHat and DrScheme.  He may well be doing so in the

A student of mine has put together an RPM for RH 8.0 & DrScheme 203. 
I’ve not had a chance to look over it yet, but assuming it does the
right thing, is there a place on the PLT/Drscheme sites he could upload
