Hi folks,

Yes, I'm trying to maintain auctex within Fedora Extras.  My RPM skills
are not great (am a beginner) and I've no experience creating spec-files
for multiple distros.

But, if you folks think its a good idea then then I'd be happy to help
(free time allowing) write and test a spec-file (or maybe multiple spec
files?) to make it easier to install all of AUCTeX on Fedora, SuSE,
Mandriva, etc.

And yes, I have so far failed to incorporate the preview-latex bits into
the latest Fedora Extras AUCTeX RPM.  Did I mention that I'm new to this
stuff?  ;-)
