well, ... , yes, ... I do not have the slightest idea how this could be 
done - my aproach was not to touch Michaels work and just work with a 
postinst.sh, which could even be used to fix some minor bugs, from the 
original Slinky. (Fetching missing rpms, ...)

For the future: I think we should continue this way, that the base-slinky 
is maintained by the Master himself, and others keep their fingers out of 
it. But to add f.e. Abiword2 I would install it with postinst.sh. But may 
be that I am completly wrong and we can find a more elegant way.

Hope that Michael can answer that - I do not know, sorry.

Bye, Ingo.
