I can't find this file. Can you create it?

Maybe each sub project (SmartcardCCID  SmartCardServices  Tokend)
should have a plists directory and the plist names could be
leopard.plist (without the obscure "scs_")

Something like:

> Note that this method does not use the source in the subversion repo. What could happen periodically is all of the patches get applied to the subversion repo and a new tarball is generated. Then the plist is modified to point to the new tarball and no patches.

Working directly with subversion would be great. But it looks like it
is difficult :-(

Looks manageable for me.
Can you commit the first leopard.plist to bootstrap the process?
