> No, there's no need to move this discussion off this list -- I think the discussion of packaging Asterisk for various distributions is close enough to the topic of the list that we can let it continue here, unless it gets out of hand.  So, for now, let's keep the discussion going!
Excellent =)

I've receive some comments about RPMS we build on our servers...  I must 
clarify that I've not write all .spec files that are available on our 
repos/download server, lots come from others repos but all has been 
rebuild and has been integrated on our own, to ease installation, so our 
customers have only 1 repo to configure.

Also, I've made an error on a previous post, we dont use YAM but DAR 
(from http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/dar/) to build all our RPMS and 
this script can also be enhanced to support .DEB creation.

I do tons of compilation (that can take several hours when have to 
compile 10-15 x the same packages for different distro/archs) and 
testing, I'm currently working to enhance our build environment, add 
more servers (distcc), automatically install build on test server (that 
run on different distro), execute load/stress test on Asterisk/Zaptel 
(using sipp, test dialplan, net/cpe bri/pri, etc...).
