Cool, as I'm about to ditch my last f13 box. i was thinking of doing
some centos5 builds but have to figure out a nice way to cope with the
changes to the rpm format, so i might just wait for centos6 which should
be able to install the f14 srpm at least.

I was actually setting the Release flag at one point - when it was
netscreen+jumbo7+sha1 but i guess it got removed now its just jumbo11,
i'll put it back in the next build so it matches omp-des-7 (probably
1.7.6-7jumbo11) it should help to differentiate it from the official
fedora packages too.

i'm also thinking of making it so you can have both (or all three)
packages installed at once, as personally i use jumbo mostly, and
manually install the omp-des binary alongside and share the

or are we likely to see omp-des merged into jumbo soon-ish?
