Thanks for this, I've got it building for i586 in my branch of it on the
packman build service and just need to fix a minor issue to get x86_64
building. I've got 2 questions on policies though:

* I only have Opensuse 11.2 installed right now, what's the usual
procedure with older distro versions? I.e. if my deluge build on 11.2
looks good would you push that into the 11.2 Packman repo or do I have
to build and test on 11.0 and 11.1 too?

* Should I use lzma instead of gzip for the source file(s) within the
source RPM? Is the binary RPM automatically in lzma?
