Is there any chance CentOS might add Chromium to extras repo? See below.

Post from Hirakendu:

"I have put up some scripts for building current Chromium versions (26
and 27) on EL 6 at


. See the readme for details. Due to the large file size, the current
RPM chromium-26.0.1410.63-192696.x86_64.rpm, built on CentOS 6.4, can
be obtained by downloading the project archive.Please note that this
is only for the time being and I do not intend to actively maintain
it, but I hope it may help others. A couple of patches may be merged
as well.

Aside, thanks to Paweł for maintaining the excellent chromium ebuilds
for Gentoo Linux (which I have been happily using for several years)
that helped clarify some of the build steps, in addition to the
official build instructions at chromium.org."
