As you may know, CentOS is strictly following upstream, e.g RHEL, and this
simple rule is it's biggest strenght. I'm affraid that the only way to
provide extra packages is through 3rd party repos. From rpmforge
website: "Apart from reporting problems, you could request other useful tools
and programs to be added. Or even better, send us a working package that we
can build on."
