So no need for me to support Java for bee crypt :)

Nope, I just want to see if there is other guys interested with RPM on OSX.
Frankly, I'm borred to rebuild Brew/MacPorts stuff and I'm not alone.
I just want to be able to set a package repository and use yum or
zypper to get stuff downloaded and installed.

If there is a RPM DMG available right now for Snow and Lion, with a
stable RPM, I'll be happy to use it.
Then we could works on building a community for RPMs production :)
