Moving to tcl/tk 8.5 will be necessary, at least on Fedora, at some
point.  Rawhide (soon-to-be Fedora 11) just switched over to 8.5, I
believe.  I have been planning for sometime to submit official
packages for Swarm to Fedora, as I'm already maintaining several other
packages there:


Since it sounds like Paul Johnson has switched to Ubuntu, I'd be happy
to pick up the Fedora torch.  I can also be a conduit for any patches
for packages that Swarm depends on (e.g. blt).  I have commit access
to a wide number of packages and can work with the Fedora maintainers
to get patches into packages (an/or request co-maintainershiop of
those packages if the current Fedora maintainer is not responsive)
and/or upstreamed if necessary.
