I believe RPMs will be made available soon, but the means to make your
own are in the source. In the released source tarball, there's a script
called src/packaging/RedHat/makesrpm.pl. If you run

makesrpm.pl <source tarball.tar.bz2> <doc tarball.tar.bz2>

it will generate an SRPM that you can then build RPMs from.
