[OpenAFS] Red Hat RPM packaging

Being in CentOS' Extras repo sounds great, but what about all the other 
RHELs out there, including RHEL itself?

I'm not very experienced in making packages but what would be nice is if 
there was an OpenAFS repo all by itself.  This way 
CentOS/RHEL/Scientific Linux/Whatever could just add that repo and 
install away.  Additionally this makes it easy for Satellite/Spacewalk 
users to add the repo to their servers to push out to their systems 
(much in the way can be done with Dell's repo for example).

Would the CentOS Project be willing to host a dedicated OpenAFS repo 
rather than using CentOS' Extras repo?

Out of curiosity, how much data would such a repo have to hold?
