I meant the general support for other sorts of bindings. I.e. it
doesn't seem as if I could get the R and Octave MPI packaging that I
have into Fedora as things stand. If that is possible, I'm happy, but
it would be good to have guidance on how. Otherwise I hope it helps to
have an idea what needs to be fixed.
Automation is good, and I assume there's no problem with extending it if
there's a policy and general framework.
