Hello.
Released version 2.3.3 of if-so (insltall from sources) tool integrated
with rpm.
if-so using any http, ftp (or local) folder with located sources
(src.rpms, tarballs) can find software, download it, build rpms, and
install.
if there are dependencies then if-so recourcively downloads all deps,
builds them all.
So, you can always check which package is installed because all sources
installed with rpms.
More of that, if-so detects your computer cpu and compile software with
predefined cpu options that should improve performance.

I am asking you to try if-so, and mail me or post here all
suggetations.
I will be happy to discuss work with you.

One of the possible usages is update Your RHEL distributions ;)/>
Another - is install modern packages on the oldest systems.

I will work on if-so to integrate it with gentoo portage tree.
