You're absolutely right and that sounds good. I will update the PEP accordingly. Martin, Ronald, Sean, what timezones are you in? I am US/Eastern.
I'm in CET (Central European), that GMT+2 in DST, and GMT+1 otherwise.
As for Sean: Sean and me had agreed that we won't do RPMs anymore for 2.5.x. Maybe we need to reconsider now, but my view is that binary RPMs typically fit a very specific OS release only (e.g. some version of Redhat); all the other RPM-using distributions (SuSE etc) couldn't use it. So compared to the value, the effort is too big.
+1. Last time I looked (a fair while ago now) the number of downloads of the RPM packages wasn't that large.
