[CentOS] You didn't give me some packages, so now I'm giving you some! R, TexLive, LyX, Gnumeric, etc.

i'm sorry that you're experiencing confusion; the websites for  
RPMforge and rpmrepo are incomplete right now.  rather than continuing  
to beat your head against a sparsely populated wiki, i'd recommend you  
do the following:

1) subscribe to the appropriate RPMforge mailing list (http://lists.rpmforge.net/mailman/listinfo 
) - since you're submitting new packages, you probably want the  
"suggest" list.  you may also want to join the "users" list.

2) post your specfiles to the suggest list.  here's an example of  
someone else posting a spec file (http://lists.rpmforge.net/pipermail/suggest/2008-July/000547.html 
), which is then accepted by one of the admins.

i hope you won't be discouraged; even if not everyone in the CentOS  
community is excited about your packages, i'm sure that someone out  
there will be, and contributing them to a large, widely-used  
repository like RPMforge is probably the best way to distribute them.

all the best,

If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an  
improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
