If I stick the spec file in CVS I would /also/ like you to be able to
update it. :-)  Not sure if that's doable though. Not my call.

The RH SGML stuff probably needs cleaning up. As does the Validator's.
Integrating these could be a bit hairy, but should be doable eventually.

Perhaps if I make a tarball of just the relevant bits...

I meant to get to them this weekend, but I ran out of time. Worse yet, it
looks like I'll have pretty much zero time for the Validator for a while
now, so I'm not sure when I can get to them. I'll try to do it as quickly
as I can though (I _hate_ waiting for patches to get applied upstream).
