Seems Dag beat me to it, but there are a couple unwritten requires for
packages submitted for centosplus or extras. They should not exist in
either dag's (rpmforge) repository, or in the Extras rebuild provided
by centos.karan.org. They should not rely on a 3rd party repository
for dependent packages. They should be from an active/established
project; unless there's an overwhelming demand for something, I won't
put brand new code from an unknown project in.. doesn't meet the
enterprise definition.

All the previous negative things and rules aside, thanks for your
submission. Action is appreciated and welcomed, but this is already
packaged by dag.
