I also just put online the packages I use.
So if you don't feel to build them, but to play with them, feel free to
do a:
urpmi.addmedia  BigTop "http://www.bmahe.net/repos/BigTop/mageia/1/x86_64/"

So far I have only focused on getting things built and installable. And
will start focusing on ensuring they do work as expected :)

Note that I don't guarantee anything about that repository, although I
will try to update it from time to time.
