This actually seems reasonable to me (uploading a tarball as an 
attachment that can be linked to later)  I've been doing this with 
smolt.  There's two issues currently though.  1) For some reason the 
system doesn't work in FireFox and 2) The link to the actual download 
page includes variables like &action=raw or something like that and RPM 
hates it.
