I tried, 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_a_GNU_Hello_RPM_package and 
it works. The step on "mock" is still downloading the bits @ 256Kbps. 
Anyway other way to do it instead of downloading so much bits for the 
mock environment ?

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers is 
yet to incorporate this new arrangement of "co-maintainer" registration 
etc. Is there any other page created for this purpose ? How do I 
register / join as a "co-maintainer" ?

with Regards,
