[csw-maintainers] Using a package from current on stable

The Ganglia package I've been working with works on a wide range of 
architectures.  I thought I would try to install the package on a 
Solaris 8 system with OpenCSW stable instead of current

Two issues arise:
- cswclassutils is missing on stable
- expat.so.0 on stable, expat.so.1 expected for current

Therefore, I suspect I need to

- copy some additional things, e.g. cswclassutils, to the system where I 
want Ganglia

- rebuild my package for stable's library versions - how do I tell gar 
to do that?

Given that my package is a new package and doesn't impact any other 
packages, are there any other steps I need to take to make it suitable 
for an upcoming stable release?  Will the use of cswclassutils prevent 
me from having the package in stable?
