  As our web server is running Redhat Enterprise (it came that way), I'm
not sure how to setup a deb repository on a Redhat system.

  That I did do, but haven't bothered to keep it up to date. More long
term I'd love to have deb and rpm repositories for Gnash, I just break
down on the systems administration end... There's a few things I need to
do to buildbot too, there are only so many hours in the day...

  That's probably a good idea. :-) You're the only person I know that
has even tried the experimental XPI packages, so they're mostly untested.

  Not at all, I'm new to XPI packaging. I'd still like it to work
correctly, as I think it'll be a good way for people to keep their copy
of Gnash more up to date after critical bug fixes.
