BTW, Johannes,

are there any plans to package PyKota for openSUSE any time soon?


(P.S.: I'm sure I'd write a raving review of both, PyKota and
       openSUSE-10.3, on a very prominent news outlet on the Internet,
       if only it were packaged properly by openSUSE. Replace "openSUSE"
       with $anydistro, if you want.... But right now, PyKota can not
       really be recommended to any customer or user who does not have
       a versatile and smart packager at their own disposal.)
