[CentOS-devel] [Cloud SIG] CloudStack publishing effort in CentOS

Hi all, (/cc cloudstack-dev)

I'm Rohit Yadav, committer/pmc from the Apache CloudStack [1] community.
Apache CloudStack is an IaaS cloud computing platform.

I've been maintaining and publishing the CloudStack noredist repos [3][4]
for few years now, and I would like to get them published to the official
CentOS (and other distros) repositories.

I met Rich during Fosdem yesterday and he suggested to reach out to the
cloud-sig/list [2] to discuss how we can get CloudStack rpms into CentOS. I
understand in the past we were not very successful at that, but I want to
make a second attempt especially since we've introduced the concept of LTS
releases in CloudStack.

I'm not sure if the devel list is the right place or if an explicit
cloud-sig list exists [2], so please advise --
- Where may I start?
- What is the packaging/release process and how can one help become a
package maintainer?
- Advise on legal stuff around publishing of rpms (the noredist
repositories bundle non-oss jar dependencies such as those from Vmware vim
sdk etc)?
- How can the packages also be available for Fedora, may RHEL and

Thoughts, comments? Thanks.
