This also goes to companies building (proprietary?) applications for 
commercial purposes, and stepping up to both maintaining the dependency 
stack for their application, as well as getting their dependencies 
packaged. Of course, this goes through Fedora, and would end up in EPEL 
for them and their customers to use on their Enterprise Linux systems.
