As for the graphical frontend to rpm, keep in mind that there are several
already around. I remember seeing a kde package manager that "spoke" all
sorts of packagers. There's also autorpm and a couple other graphical rpm
interfaces being discussed every now and again on redhat-devel. Are you
aware of these, or should I try to dig up some url's?

As for where to put them, you can mkdir public_html from your homedir on
cran, and then people can access ~/public_html/foo as

Once it becomes something a lot of people want to look at, we can integrate
it into the seul website itself. This is done simply by finding the directory

the production website will reflect the changes.
