Sounds ok in general, but there's likely going to always be two options 
needed.  One option where someone just installs a distribution build, that 
uses the distribution repo, and isn't in the end something subject to 
support, etc, from Zimbra, and release from Zimbra, that are current and 
use Zimbra's repository servers, which can have associated support 
contracts, etc.
