Not yet, but I always wonder who actually creates rpms at various 
distribution sites, such as rpmfind.net, dag, etc, and how it is done.

Wny don't the source organizations (i.e. abisource for abiword) create 
.deb and .rpms for that program, instead of having to find it at some 
random site, not knowing who has really done what to create the rpm at the 
repo site.
