There are two updates available: one containing the packages needed to
run evolution, and one containing the development packages needed to
compile the evolution tarball.
I have a really good suggestion which I am actually stealing from Owen
Taylor and his 'pango' project :)
Create RPMs using a different name than the standard i.e. gnome-vfs-ev,
Also make sure they do not install in /usr (perhaps they should install
in a /evolution directory or something). That way this will not 'clobber'
different installations just for trying to play with Evolution (for
example, I am hacking on gnome-vfs, I don't want to install a gnome-vfs
RPM that will screw up my hacking/testing).
People may also need to run different RPMs for different packages.
Anyway - the way pango does it is install 'gtk+-gtkss' into /opt/pango or
something like that. That way it does not clobber the Gtk+ RPM and it
does not install files where they will get in the way.
