I am not sure, but may work, need to test.

If you can put this on OSGeo site then we can. But, please remember
that we cannot have this on a third party URL other than the upstream

I already have many VMs on may machines, unfortunately I dont have one
for CentOS5 and RHEL5 . I am travelling right now and have a very
limited internet connectivity (1x CDMA N/W), otherwise I would have
been downloaded the image and set it up by this time.

I can have a mock build for RHEL5 on fedora build system, but the
upload of the source is also taking some time and getting disconnected
in between because of the instable network connectivity.

So, I thought you may have some machines in which i can do ssh and
test. Anyway my connectivity will be poor up to 19th of this month, I
will try to do the mock for RHEL5 on fedora build system, let me see
how it goes.
