Re: Support for mysql++ in Fedora?

I am willing to do get it into the extras, but I am new to Fedora's packaging guidelines.  Are they documented somewhere?
If I do the work then can the mysql++ RPMs be included in the FC5, FC6, etc releases?
As well, where do the binary RPMs come from?  Do I build them or is there a special build system that creates the binary RPMs once the source RPM is created?

Doesn't look like it. It'd probably make a good candidate for inclusion
in Fedora Extras if you're up to it. Take a look at the
Extras/Contributors page [1] on the wiki for more information on how to
get started if you would like to contribute this packaging to Fedora.

Also, I've added it to the wiki Extras/WishList page [2].

(Just please...for the love of $DEITY, don't use their spec file if you
plan to package it. That thing needs LOTS and LOTS of loving before
being _almost_ compliant with Fedora's packaging guidelines. :O)
