I, frankly, don't care.

See, that would be the final packaging for a release. In the meanwhile, we 
could exchange our Cauldron packages in a less-secure constellation of build 
machines. If we admit that cauldron rpms are just built by the packagers (but 
also signed etc.), then we take a lot of load off the "release" build cluster.

Say NO to spam and viruses. Stop using Microsoft Windows!
