If there was a clear set of guidelines I could try and brush up my spec
skills and add a few packages I value but which are not part of the
I would be willing to maintain them but would be unable to build them on
all supported systems. So if anything could be arrange so I could build
them on my own Centos 4 system(s) first and then put them up to be build
for the other supported versions.
I could do with a project leader in this as I sometimes need to be
reminded of things to be done.
With people like me adding and supporting only some packages the drops
might become a flood.
