Am I alone in finding this very bizarre --
that people running something as "leading edge" as coda
are also running extraordinarily ancient versions of RedHat.
I got the coda RPMs, but decided it was just not worth the trouble
to try to deal with all the version incompatibilities.
I wonder if anyone in the world has actually installed these RPMs?

I got the coda source and compiled it without problem,
though I haven't dared to run it yet!
Surely it wouldn't be that difficult to create contemporary RPMs?
