Nobody stepped up to review chktex, so Tibbs is doing it, and I begun
reviewing lcdf-typetools after some weeks because nobody else did it,
although this is now more or less a required component of texlive.
I also review ttf2pt1 although I left 2 weeks to pass hoping for
somebody else to step in.

And some time ago I posted all the packages that are in texlive but have
a separate upstream, and it is only now that they are posted for review
(chktex, ttf2pt1 and lcdf-typetools), by people needing sponsors.

I may be wrong, maybe the TeX/LaTeX community in fedora is healthy, but
this is not my impression.

Another thing that, in my opinion, shows that we are not really very
active is the lack of guidelines for TeX. It is also linked with the
rapid pace of changes linked with switching to texlive 2007 and now 2008
is already there and completly different, but I don't think this is the
only reason.
