I would love to get better support for RedHat-flavored Linux  
distributions.  The first step is to get a stable buildbot running a  
RedHat variant (probably Fedora).  Ruben Kerkhof has kindly  
volunteered a Fedora buildbot, but Tahoe-LAFS crashes when we run the  
unit tests on that machine:


Maybe Ruben could investigate -- do any other programs get signal 11  
on that machine?  (E.g. gcc on the Linux kernel).  In any case, I  
think it is always wise to have more than one buildbot for a given  
platform.  If you have two, then if one breaks and the other doesn't  
then you know it was probably a change to the buildbot rather than a  
change to the Tahoe-LAFS source code.  :-)

After we get a Supported-class RedHat buildbot, the next step is to  
try these cool tools that Sean Reifschneider has been working on to  
automatically produce RPMs from Python packages.  Sean: I added  
<jafo at tummy.com> to the whitelist so that if you reply to this letter  
and Cc: tahoe-dev your reply will go through even if you aren't  
subscribed to tahoe-dev.
