Yes, been working on the rhwas stuff for centos5, and I was going to post an 
email on this list about that tomorrow.

Some of the components, like php5/mysql/httpd/mod_perl etc build with no issues 
- however, the Java bits are a bit tricky. And to be honest, I could use some 
help from people who know a bit more about the situation.

We cant build and ship out the java stuff without using some jre / jvm - IcedTea 
is not quite there yet. And I dont think we can actually ship any jdk due to 
licensing issues. Could we ?

- KB

And, btw - gophp5 people are idiots. Feel free to tell them that. If only this 
much energy was spent on educating the script kiddies on proper coding 
methodologies and audit process etc, we wont have php as, imho, the largest 
security liability in the Linux server world today.
