Dear friends,

Some news about building RPMs for pgAdmin III:

I am now using Qemu, the free-sofware equivalent of VMware (in fact Qemu is 
much more as it will soon emulate a PPC suitable for MacOsX).

Qemu is becoming usable very quickly and offers 25% speed of a native system, 
which is fairly enough to build RPMs.

From my point of view, the following platforms (possibly with the help of 
other packagers, any help welcome) should be targeted:

- Fefora Core 2
- Fefora Core 1
- RedHat 9

- Mandrake 10 final edition
- Mandrake 9.2
- Mandrake 9.1

- SuSE 9.1
- SuSE 9.0
- SuSE 8.2

Do you need other platforms?

Will we need to release a set of wxWhatever RPMs?

Are we still building staticly (I would prefer to avoid conflicts with 
possible wxAnything packages provided with recent distros, if any)?

( Looking back, it may have been a better choice to choose a plain Gtk2 + 
gtkmm framework. At least, pgAdmin III would now run under Win32, GNU/Linux 
and MacOsX without problem. Just my 0.02 euros).

Cheers,
Jean-Michel
