Good of you to offer your time.  I had originally offered to take over 
as the package maintainer for Suse.  As it worked out an emergency 
migration project at work has me working 70hr. weeks so I have not had 
time as of late to start to contribute.  Additionally, resent 
frustrations with Suse have had me thinking about changing distros.

If you have never built RPM's before(nigher have I ) there is some 
helpful reading at rpm.org

specifically this page gives a nice over view of the process

The page has more in depth details of the steps involved

The easiest way to start would probably be to take an existing package, 
like the Red Hat RPMs and  add the additional packages to satisfy their 
dependencies on Suse.  From there you could start looking at building a 
stand alone Suse package.

I posted some details on the forum the additional RPMs needed to install 
VLC .7 on Suse 9.0

I will be glad to help you out in any way that I can.  Feel free to 
email me directly with questions.
