And submit your work to at least RPMForge, if it's a publicly available
tarball.  Also look there if someone already has one.

If it's just data, then there's little excuse not to use RPM to package
it, possibly leverage a configuration management system for recipes to
help manage it.

You already know Red Hat as the entity dedicated to 100%
no-IP-strings-attached, community software development.
But do you know where CIOs rate Red Hat versus other
software and services firms for their own, direct needs? 
It's no comparison:  http://www.redhat.com/promo/vendor/
