Hi Helio,

Thanks for the feedback. I will consider your request and see what can be done.

I was questioning when doing packages for all fdo providers why we have all 
resources inside main fdo tarballs..
Is almost 150 Mb of sources, and real code is just a fraction of that.
How about create separated tarballs for code and test resources ? Would be a 
lot easier to make packages and distribute then..

Just my 2c's
