RPM.RGW-NET.COM launched! OggConvert package built, signed, and released!

Well, last night, I worked myself to like 4am in the morning setting up a new site, the RGW RPM Repository. I spent quite a bit of time wikifying all the licenses, categorizing them, and having proper legal disclaimers on the bottom of the site. The content on the site by default is dual licensed GFDL and CC-BY-SA 3.0. The RPM packages and specs are by default licensed GNU GPL. In certain conditions, the RPM packaging files and specfiles are licensed under the GNU LGPL. The first package I set up there is OggConvert.

OggConvert is a tiny little pyGTK application that can convert videos and music from any format GStreamer supports to Theora/Vorbis formats. This application is available here and even the author of the actual application, Tristan Brindle, has linked to it on his site! Doesn’t helping out the FOSS community give you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside?
