After Nikolaus Rath's ordeal, I spent quite some time improving our 
installation process to the point where make install is enough to get a 
working CiderWebmail installation. I had a look at Module::Package::RDF but 
did not get far. It sounds like it could make one's life easier, but doesn't 
seem to be very well documented and I'm not sure how well maintained 
Module::Package actually is.

I also had a good look at what you did to actually make a Debian package. Your 
psgi file did not work for me, but it seemed simple to fix. Attaching the 
fixed version. The change is just:

-        $ENV{CATALYST_CONFIG} |= '/etc/ciderwebmai';
+        $ENV{CIDERWEBMAIL_CONFIG} ||= '/etc/ciderwebmail/ciderwebmail';

With this change it does find the /etc/ciderwebmail/ciderwebmail.conf

I would very much like to use your READMEs as base for our coming user 
documentation and will certainly take some hints from your rules file when 
trying to create rpms for openSUSE.
