Dennis Gilmore, Fedora contributor and OLPC build master, has
similarly been working on an automated xo to rpm conversion.
We may also want to discuss simple extensions to the xo bundle format
which would facilitate such automated conversion. There had been
attempts in the past to do so, but there was no community involvement
at the time.
