Hy all,

According to Ville, seperated packages seems to be the best way.

regarding how making opendnssec work with his required version of sqlite
without modifying deeply the base system,
I would suggest exchanging with Centos and EPEL community to find how we can
resolve this issue
(and all other related to this kind of requirements).

regarging gitorious, the best way is to create an account on gitorious.org,
watch the rpmodssec project and i'll add you the devteam.

another question is what should be the base of our work ?
mine ? ville's work?

IMHO this doesn't really matter, once we have some fuel to deal with, i'm
pretty sure this project will progress quickly :-)

btw thank you very much Tim for your proposition, i'm sure we will achieve
great things all together.

as i said in a previous email, i was working on building a koji instance to
have a continuous building system.
Tim do you think , the Centos community would share some of his building
infrastructure with us ?
