My goal when creating this poll was to find out where our development
efforts in the area of packaging should be directed first. Each of the
listed entries will require a different packaging format (RPMs for
Fedora/Mandriva/SuSE, dpkgs for Debian/Ubuntu, ebuilds for Gentoo).

If we find out most of the current kicad users are using Debian/Ubuntu,
then it would make sense to focus on creating dpkgs before RPMs...
