The easiest way to repackage packman packages which are build by my 
build script is to use my packman_rebuild.sh script, you can start it 
with architecture and source rpm as parameter (for example 
'packman_rebuild.sh ppc libxine1-1.1.0-12.pm.0.src.rpm'), the package 
will be rebuild, signed, uploaded and the entry in the web interface is 
done automaticly.
Let's talk about details, when your account is set up.

Nice to here. Some of the xine developers use powerbooks, so it normaly 
is good tested on ppc.

Normaly the -devel package should include a dependency to the base 
package. Normaly at the same version, so -devel and base package always 
should be the same version. So
