Sorry, the OIAC project is still in drafting state.
If you want to contribute a package right now you could try
integrating it into the spec-files-extra project (in fact some OI
community members have already done that). We will soon provide
an unsupported IPS repo with a selection of packages from the
spec-files-extra project and once our own OI Addon Consolidations
project takes off we will import packages from there as well.
Some information about SFE can be found at
If you're interested I might be able to help a bit and you can get
assistance in #pkgbuild or #oi-dev on irc.freenode.org as well.
