Mostly yes. The maintainers generally use recent CVS versions for our
work, and don't have much need for releases, let alone packaged binaries.
Also, vxl works on a wide range of platforms - and there isn't any
obvious distributions which we could target. I suppose a .src.rpm might
be useful for some people. If you want to volunteer to maintain it -
that would be great.
