Just to make it full and clear 

If an EPEL maintainer wants to get a Fedora package into EPEL,
first check the ContributorStatus document, located in the wiki at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/ContributorStatus .

If the Fedora maintainer of the package has indicated a desire not to
participate in EPEL then the proposed EPEL maintainer can request the branch
directly via the standard procedures (e.g. via bugzilla currently).  The 
proposed EPEL maintainer should CC the Fedora maintainer on the branch 
request, so the Fedora maintainer knows that the package is maintained in 
EPEL as well.

If it is unclear if the Fedora maintainer of the package intends to 
participate in EPEL then the proposed EPEL maintainer should mail the Fedora 
maintainer and ask about their plans for EPEL in general and the package at 
hand.  If there is no answer within seven days the proposed EPEL maintainer 
is free to request the EPEL branch and become the EPEL Maintainer (CC the 
Fedora maintainer here as well).  If the Fedora maintainer decides not to be 
active in EPEL they should be added to the CC list for all bugs  so that 
collaboration can happen where a bug effects Fedora and EPEL.

If the Fedora maintainer later decides to participate in EPEL, Then both 
people will become co-maintainers for EPEL.  (Of course co-maintainership can 
be extended to Fedora)
