I think the reverse question is also true, are you available to be a
maintainer for Fedora or EPEL? For software like this, it is much
better if upstream is working on doing this as they can fix issues
there versus a long game of pass the bug.

programs are included in EPEL when a maintainer wants to maintain it.
We try to stay away from including software that we then have no one
interested in fixing later.
