[wpkg-users] Variable expansion question

I've never managed to get this to work for my clients. It's a bit of a pain
but I end up replacing the %software% variable in my individual package.xml
files with the FQDN of my server's share. For some reason my wpkg clients
even insist on the FQDN and won't resolve the hostname alone.
