Some weeks ago I announced some Fedora Core 2 packages, among them
gdal. I would like to inform you that they have now been registered
on the official fedora-site [1] and are undergoing a qualitiy
assurance by the Fedora QA-team. Especially gdal has already been
viewed by two people and I am currently working on a new package.
So hopefully gdal will be part of official Fedora Core releases in
the future. You can follow the progress on Fedora bugzilla (see the
list of links below). 

The package can be downloaded from our FTP-Site and its FreeGIS
mirror [2]. There are three subdirectories: SPEC, SRPMS, and RPMS.
They are containing Specfiles, source rpms and binary rpms
respectively. I would suggest to include the gdal.spec into CVS such
as we already did with the debian directory.

The gdal package is based on the shapelib and proj packages by David
M. Kaplan and Steve Arnold who did register their packages in
November and December 2003. Their status in Fedora can also be
viewed on Fedora bugzilla.

I set up a page which summarizes all the information about the
projects including the actual links to the packages.  This page is
located at our homepage [3].

Many greetings,
