I get requests frequently for binary RPM packages for Subversion.

However, I also have the source RPMs available as well, and even the
supporting RPMs in a subversion repository
(http://summersoft.fay.ar.us/repos).

However, since there is more than one SPEC file for the RPMs (because of
the different platforms), I don't think someone can use the "-ta" option
on the source code tarball.
