Hi Karl,

Community members who hang out here much appreciate the positive vibe :)

Sounds like a cool piece of software. Have you had any experience in 
packaging software into an rpm ?
It isn't really that hard to do {but can be intimidating}, and it seems 
that there are already rpms for other distributions that could be used 
as a starting point.

What would you get out of it ?
In the future you or any fedora user would be able to:
yum install gMFSK and the software would "just work".

While I am willing to help, I don't have the hardware to test with, so 
you would need to be involved.
