Packages in Fedora are maintained in a voluntary basis. Every new
package has to go through a review process for sanity checks. If you are
interested, you can join by either packaging up the software you are
missing out or reviewing dozens and dozens of packages which are waiting
on that.

Note however that a direct comparison of number of packages is tricky
because packages are split up differently between distributions.
