Hi again,

Sorry for the delay. It's been busy at work. Anyway, for the sqlite
package. The best method to use is (and the one used at the CentOS
project) is to create a separate package somewhat like the compat
packages used to keep older libraries available. But in this case we
will use it for a newer library.

Then we need to get OpenDNSSEC and SoftHSM to compile using this
library. I don't like to use things like LD_LIBRARY_PATH or any other
tricks. We should be able to just point it to the right sqlite
package/location. If necesarry we need to make changes to the
configure/make scripts.

For the build infrastructure. We can use the CentOS build machines,
meaning that I can submit packages to the CentOS devel repo and they
get build automatically and become available on the internet. This is
a also a good test to make sure the packages build cleanly inside a

So, what SPEC files and/or src.rpms are already out there ? If OK I
can merge them all together and we can all start working from there ?
I think I already mentioned that my primary focus would be for 1.1.
Once that is ready we can look at 1.0 packages.
