Open-OVF not available for Oracle Linux 6

Situtation:
There is no Open-OVF RPM for Oracle Linux 6. That RPM is a necessary requisite which it used by the Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder to create assembly files.

Solution:
Download the RPM open-ovf-1.1-1.0.47.el6.noarch.rpm from this link.  What I did is to recreate the Oracle Linux 5 RPM package for Oracle Linux 6.

Then install it using the following command:
rpm -ivh open-ovf-1.1-1.0.47.el6.noarch.rpm
