Hi all,

Sorry for the delay, the last few weeks were hectic.

I have a first version of the pages:
- http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/SetupRpmBuildEnvironment
- http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/RebuildSRPM

Let me know what you think. Feel free to suggest changes and
additions, I'll be happy to change the pages according to them.

If anyone wants to collaborate in further writing and editing the
pages, I will be more than happy to share write access to them with

I hope you like it!
