Hello Robert,

No problem, reply when you can, it's not a really high priority subject 
at this point as we're just discussing options...

I really like Mike's setup on the osgtoy svn, so I'd suggest starting 
with that but just transposing it to the main OSG SVN. There could then 
be branches for different platforms/compilers, and it would all be under 
the same tree. Add Matthias' precompiled dependencies to that. I think 
that would be a great start.

There's also no reason why this couldn't apply to other platforms too, 
so for example was it the Debian binaries that are on some developer's 
web site (Loic Dachary?) and could be brought into this structure.

Yes, that would be a must. Different maintainers could have control over 
different branches in this setup, so someone who has access to platform 
X and compiler Y would have access to the correct branch.

Perhaps we should start a discussion about this under a new title (new 
thread) and ask who would be willing to compile / maintain some binaries 
/ dependencies on different platforms?
