I'm not actively seeking giving away my packages.  I'm fine with them as long
as they don't demand too much time from me.  But I'll just hand them off as
soon as a Fedora contributor shows up and wants to make non-trivial changes in
them.  That's for example how I handed some of my font packages to Nicolas, or
my entire ogg vorbis stack to Hans.  The point being: I am no the bottleneck /
problem / ... with these packages.  The same holds true about many other
ex-core packages and RH "guys".  Just stop attacking us.
