Rosegarden 1.7.3 rpm for Mandriva Linux 2008.1

Rosegarden is probably the most popular audio and MIDI sequencer, score editor, and general-purpose music composition and editing environment for Linux.

The version of Rosegarden officially available for Mandriva Linux 2008.1 is the rather old 1.6.1, therefore I have packaged up the current version of Rosegarden (1.7.3 released on 2nd February 2009), which is also supposed to be the last Qt3 based release, according to the developers of Rosegarden, who are now working on a Qt4 version.

See for release notes.
