yes... but i think there is a good service that can be provided
if we can list which version of which cad apps runns under which
particular distro

- <fact> just because foo-x.y.z.rpm runs on  distro-x.y  does NOT mean
  it will run on the current distro  </fact>
        - and its such a pain to get it all right...

- usual solution is
        - dowload all the lastest patches
        - get the lastest of everything from the original sources
          ( everything that is broken )

and yes.. thats a lot of work to keep track of versions :-)
