In terms of exchanging binaries - if you aren't already, you might like 
to consider packaging your source code as rpm and exchanging src.rpm's. 
Then the other users would need to perform a few steps ending with 
rpmbuild --rebuild x.src.rpm

The others would be able to review your source code; you may not want that.
