Description of problem:
This is a request that you will include aria2 (http://aria2.sourceforge.net/) RPMs in Fedora Extras. aria2 is a command line download utility that supports BitTorrent. It's like the aria2 download manager but light weight and no GUI.

I've been using this .spec file to package it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.

%define ver 0.7.0
%define rel 1.FC6
%define prefix /usr
Name        : aria2
Version     : %{ver}

Release     : %{rel}

If you're interested in developing this package so as to meet the Fedora
Packaging Guidelines and to maintain it yourself in Extras, you should read:


If not, it would be better to add it here:


in the hope that someone will pick up the package and maintain it in Extras
