Various things used on the Liverpool University HPC service that aren't yet, or can't be (e.g. using dkms), in Fedora/EPEL, as well as rebuilds and modifications of existing packages. This targets principally EPEL6 -- other targets are currently mostly for testing the packaging. See also the parallel gridengine repo. [This no longer reflects Liverpool usage, but I've kept the name for now.]

People who don't believe in packaging might still find this useful for providing build recipes. You can extract the .spec file from the downloaded source of package X like this and look at the %prep and %build sections:

rpm2cpio X-*.src.rpm | cpio -i X.spec

You can use rpm2cpio also on Debian-ish systems.
