I know that Nightingale isn't ready for a release yet, but I believe that attempting to package it now is important. It will be a proof of concept to counter the multiple web-site failures, and time elapsed since Songbird dropped its support of the G.N.U./Linux platform. At least, a spec file rpm building and a control file for deb building would be nice. If the given information is there for people to package, or test packaging, then that would help people think about using Nightingale as opposed to the tar-ball that is put out as an unsupported, contributed build from Songbird. The key to Nightingale's success is its integration into package management and integration into common desktop behavior (i.e. menus, non-local installation).
