Actually, I created everything for 6.x when 6.0 came out. And all I do 
now is to add new versions of packages from some repositories and manual 
downloads, or to add some new repository is I come across it. Only thing 
I never bothers to do is to release release rpm's with all of that 
packaged, mostly because I disabled GPG signatures so I do not want to 
raise suspicions that I messed with packages.

But just now I was reading on "cost" option for yum repositories 
(totally unusable) and I saw that I can assign several GPG keys to 
single repository, so I might pick up on my "DentOS" project :)
