The only reason I saw was that it was a dependency that we
haven't tracked at all (see the req to fix
with the correct URL) and was/is easy to lose. There seemed
to have been some improvements since 4.12 that also looked
like they might have been useful.

All in all, have a tarball w/ no real source version
control, and a tarball whose location has changed and
been lost, up to now, seems like an easy thing to
resolve. Hence the repo.

epm is required and not under our control. In fact, epm 4.3 is out
and work much better for AOO since it removes the need for the
long-since deprecated PackageMaker app and instead uses the
official pkgbuild stuff. Part of my changes (to
be submitted to trunk) notices that.

Or is this the typical warm and inviting behavior that all
"new" AOO contributors are subjected to?
