For what's worth, IMO there is at least one thing we at Centos-devel
could learn from EPEL: they have very clear rules about how to get
contributed packages into their repo:


I for one have some packages (http://www.durval.com.br/RPMS/el4/)
I've been trying to contribute to CentOS for many months now, without
success: I've posted messages trying to submit the packages, talked to
some developers, even started a page on the CentOS Wiki about it, but
in the end it came to naught (I privately received information from
one developer explaining why there are no clear rules, but I was asked
to keep it confidential and so I can't post it here).

This is very frustrating, and I think it keeps many people from
contributing to CentOS.
