This is a request that you will include aria2 ( 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.

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:
