Actually, Chris and I have been making tweaks based on the variations between OpenDKIM 2.2 vs. 2.3, as opposed to any differences among various RedHat flavors. The script I mailed yesterday will work with 2.3 for ANY of the recent Fedora, RHEL, or CentOS.

Having separate subdirs also allows you to include a README file along with each of the init scripts (assuming any of them needed a README to explain deployment)

Or, you could just have a single README that identifies each script, and then users should rely on comments within the scripts themselves regarding usage.

Personally, I'm cool with either approach. I simply prefer consistency overall. Either ALL in one dir, or ALL in separate dirs. I realize the separate subdirs is a bit more messy, but it does provide maximum flexibility moving forward.
