great :-)

i've create so
that anyone who wants to contribute some prose or prefers to comment
that way can do so

i'm not an expert so please jump in whenever i have anything wrong :-)

i suppose (please jump if anyone can see a better way to organise
this) that it breaks down into general (distribution-independent)
advice, specific information for particular distributions and tooling
how to (stuff like ant, buildr, maven)

picking up with the advice from chris, i suppose apache projects need
to actively engage with the distros, rather than just expecting it to
happen or demanding that someone else does the work. so - i guess -
that the first step should be to find volunteers from the apache
community (who need not be developers) who are interested in working
with the linux distros. as a second step, take time to understand the
distro community (and whether there might already be some people there
who are interested), to understand the rules of the community and to
work out what - if anything - is already happening in this area.

what about dependencies?

AFAICT chris has done a good job on this: is there anything else to add?

is the best way into redhat through fedora?
