Help with creating rpms for contribution

    I'm wanting to create some rpms from tarball packages, mostly network 
security apps and an mp3 server that i'd then like to submit to epel for 
inclusion. I've read the rpm building docs so i have an idea as to how the 
process should go, however for my first rpm i'd rather have some shoulder 
looking from someone whose actually done it, vs. putting out something that 
looks like well a first-time kludged together rpm. If anyone's interested, i 
doubt any of these packages will take very long, they all compile out of the 
box, please let me know privately.
    And whom would i speak to for rpm inclusion?
