I apologize if this has all been discussed.  And this is off-topic from packaging so I changed
the subject.

RPMs don't necessarily have to be from yum repo right?  Why can't it just be downloaded from
the page along with the source package?  Don't get me wrong.  Very grateful to Wido for stepping
up to help.  Not questioning that.  It's just that when I visit the download page, it just
has a bunch of rpms but nothing to offer in terms of directions on what to do to install.
 It makes it difficult for new users to get started.  What can we do in that area to make
it easier?
