I'm missing wicd - a python-based alternative network manager (
http://wicd.net/ ). It's very easy to install, but adding it to the
Fedora repo will help the users to keep up with the updates. I found
some discussions about adding it to the repos, but nothing have happened
since then (March 2008).

It will be nice to see the omnibook module too (
http://sourceforge.net/projects/omke ). The project seems dead and the
only usable version is the SVN snapshot, but I think it will help the
notebook users who can't compile the module themselves and need built-in
support for the specific hardware. For example, without omnibook it's
impossible to use your bluetooth on such notebook.

And, finally, one game - Simutrans ( http://www.simutrans.com/ ). It's a
transportation simulation game. The package won't be very big, even with
 a few PAKs.
