As the author of the srpm you found I can tell you that it is very easy to
update for kernels and drivers. I will try to keep it updated as long as I
own the card and CentOS doesn't provide a kernel that has support for that
The 8.0 version of smeserver is in development so I don't push things out as
quickly for that version yet. I do keep the 7.0 version (based on CentOS
4.x) up to date as that is what I run on my production server.
