Here's how you go about getting a fedora extras cvs account:

once you get an account you can.

see one.

Right now you edit up this page:

 and put the build requests in the second section. Then I build them.
In the future you tag a check in as to be built and it's then built.

Right now cvs checkin to build has about a 1 day turn around time. I
hope to make it faster than that in the NEAR future.

Hope this helps.
