Okay.  That would be the filters and template Perl modules and the
corresponding documentation.  Do we want them to form a third package or
 go together with the SWISH::API into one "swish-e-perl" RPM?

Where exactly is that file located?

Hm.  There are in fact some minor dependencies (e.g. Date Perl modules)
but nothing we really need to be concerned about since FC6 is well
equipped with Perl modules.

I built the RPMs for 2.4.4 and had no problems at all.  The only thing I
needed was the build-requirement of swish-e itself for the SWISH::API.
