Well I have eventually started down the rpath route.
The documentation is very difficult to pick up and I have had a hard time working things out. The #conary irc channel has been a great help to me on my path as it were. I have been able to get bongo to compile on the rpath platform but I am having trouble with the bongo-setup script and slapd.
I am hoping to get this worked out soon and then run a script during group-build to run the bongo-setup script with all the arguments filled in for a user.
So this is how I am filling my time at the moment.
I am also doing my Prince 2 exams soon so I have less time to devote to this
Rpath will allow us to give people an option when running Bongo
