Urk, rough. :-( That's going to make life hard for testers... I'll have to
hype someone up into doing openh323 garballs again.

Well, that's up to SuSE, and hopefully their problem. It's not a good reason
for us to not make tarball releases. Remember, you can always just release
it on GNOME's FTP site, and not make a big announcement about it otherwise;
keen GNOME testers will get to it via GARNOME or find the tarball. :-)
