An opentracker integration to Fedora is on my todolist, too....

Haven't take a look in it yet.

Life isn't a sugar icing on the top of a cake. If you want libowfat in EPEL,
request a cvs branch for it and do it yourself! 
I'm so unhappy with the perverse position of fedora referring to RHEL and
CentOS, that I'm currently not willing to contribute more epel-packages than I
already have done!

MD> Please advise.
I haven't an advise for you! :-(
