We're looking into setting up tinderbox, and that'll help take care of
this, correct? How did you guys do the nightly builds with Mozilla?

If, when Tinderbox runs "make", an RPM pops out, then yeah, that will
make this really easy to do.

There will still be the issue of getting a set of executables and
libraries that all work together, but the easiest way around that will
probably be to, for example, have the Evolution tinderbox only compile
against the released RPMs.  If Evolution doesn't compile/work with those
RPMs, then you know it's time to bump the version number and release new
betas of the support libraries, so that the Evolution RPM will tell you
that you need to upgrade to a newer set of lib RPMs.

In other words, you want to avoid the situation where, to run the
nightly build of Evolution, you also have to run the nightly build of
every single Gnome component.  That's a lot to download.  So I think to
accomplish this, you'll need to have multiple tinderboxen running.
