there are no one for Fedora
i liked to built one short after release
but i have other work too, so i can not spent days for a webmail

and fedora is usually a distribution with new and rough packages
looks like the maintainer tehre has also a life beside it

how you you update the RPM packages of a fedora system
if there are no one available? looks not like this will
change in the near future leading to orphaning the package
after H4 does no longer get securoty fixes

fedora user and admin for 20 servers

as said i had liked to package H4 but not with this hughe
amount of work compared with H3

>> PEAR is not useable in large environments

>> so H4 is unuseable for large environments

you realized that i am the packager in our infrastructure for
services with any public access? not at least for security
reasons because distributions are way too slow get fixed
updates in their stable-repos and if you you have security
aduits every week you can not wait two weeks

so it is MY work to package horde or replace it with
as solution not eating my half lifetime for maintaining
because my day has only 24 hours
