Maybe link from that page ( http://wiki.centos.org/HowToContribute ) but 
actually put the details under that ( 
http://wiki.centos.org/HowToContribute/Packages )

reason : the packages contributing issue can become fairly lengthy 
itself. we'll need to add details on how / what form of policy we'd like 
   ( eg, with kernel mod's ), base naming policy, testing stuff out - 
and continued support etc. Lets put it on its own page, but make it 
under the HowToContribute page. if everyone is ok with that.

Also, the content all looks fairly sane - lets get it on the wiki and 
then we can thrash it out there.
