Eh?   GnuCash is extremely version specific.  If one were built for
RH8 it wouldn't work on ES, so what's the point?   If the point
were to support ES we'd need to built on ES.  If the point is to
support RH9, we'd need to build on RH9.

If you want it, offer to be the maintainer.  That implies you're
offering to build and test the RPMs on your release(s) for every
Gnucash release.  Are you volunteering?
