On Georgian truetype support in Fedora :

You can work on pushing these GPL fonts in Fedora Extras
http://bpg.sytes.net/BPG-InfoTech/sppro/bpg/publication_view.asp?iabspos=1&vjob=vdocid,146407

or find some people interested in designing/learning to design glyphs and
work with the dejavu project (dejavu.sf.net). Unfortunately the GPL
licensing of BGP is uncompatible with the license Bitream chose for Vera,
so a font merge is not possible (it would require some work anyway to make
the metrics and style compatible, though certainly less than starting from
scratch).

DejaVu recently gained and Armenian block so adding Georgian would
certainly make sense.


On the FC6 timeline :

It's way too late to push this in FC6. Moreover I think you'll find out
that between testing fonts and apps for georgian support, fixing problems
and so on you really need to start now if you want to be ready by FC7 time
