Stuff distros don't include

For different clients, I am having to install programs that for some reason distros don't include.

Courier-imap, a dozen perl modules, netatalk... why aren't they in Red Hat or other mainstream distros? Sure, Debian has them, but I don't like Debian.

Oh, well. They are easy to rpm-ize, so I just do it myself. But then I have no place to put them so others can use it.

Does it mean I should become part of something like fedora or somesuch? I don't want to maintain them forever!
