It would be very useful for many of us using both sawfish and fedora
if you made these rpms available publicly. Would you be willing to do

If you just put them up on the web somewhere, a set of rpms for fedora
12, another set for fedora 13, etc, etc, I think people would be
pretty happy and wouldn't bother you with bug reports because it would
be clear that you are not a developer only a packager.

I think if you provided a link to the rpms every fedora/sawfish user
would be very happy!
