Until we have a more formal installation solution, I think the SRPM's spec
file should reside in CVS. It would also be nice to have other
installation options as well, such as Debian packages (sorrry, not totally
familiar with the terminology to use), BSD ports, Gentoo ports, Windows
installers, etc. We just need champions willing to submit and maintain
each of these.
Before anything's actually added, however, maybe we should discuss things
a bit either here or on the Boost Install list.
