The packaging guidelines have settled down alot. If possible, please
use the command cabal2spec to generate your spec files following the

In order to do packaging run:
yum --enablerepo=rawhide update ghc

Packages that already have review requests are easily searchable
through bugzilla. I think the majority of your packages though are
free for the taking.
