It could be a question for EPEL (because that's what EPEL effectively is… a repo for things that move faster than the distributions) then, although this might get vetoed on the basis that it could/would clash with the official distribution packages.

I think what Adrian wants is the equivalent of my ppa
( for rhel/centos/fedora. It'd be
best (for users) if the build comes with distro-specific
customizations/patches, but it's fine even if it's just packages built
using the default recipe included in FR tarball (which is what does) as long as
it's close enough. provides ppa-like service
for multiple distros (including rhel/centos/fedora), so
server/bandwitdh resources shouldn't be an issue. The main resource
needed would be the time needed to manage the build recipes, and
fixing it in case something goes wrong.
