Packaging is not a free thing. It takes time energy and someone who is
going to deal with it. Most people who have packages are usually
swamped as it is... so if you see something you would like to get into
Fedora.. first check to see if someone is already packaging it, and
then volunteer to do it yourself (or help someone who can). Otherwise
its not going to happen.
