Alternative open source packages in ACS

All the PASE packages are delivered by YUM - and it works great. The ACS interface even makes installation much easier. However not all open source is available in YUM.

It will be rather useful to have a "one-stop-shop" for all kind of open source installation- and not only PASE/YUM. Therefore it will be appreciated if the "list of open source" in ACS had an extra tab containing a list of "how-to" and/or links to "how-to" install software like i.e. "Kafka" or "Tomcat".
