Well there are already some Package Request in out bugzilla. Not sure if
thats the right place. Maybe we should close those and add them to

To cite:

As a current contributor, if you know of projects that would be
appropriate in Fedora Core or Fedora Extras but are unable to maintain
yourself just drop them with a line here. This list can be used to give
other contributors ideas on what to package next. Please be aware
however that the number of high quality, well maintained packages that
Extras can provide scales with the number of active contributors. It is
just as important to encourage new contributors as it is to desire new
packages. If you are not yet a contributor to the Extras packaging
process, please look over this list and see if there are any projects
you would be willing to maintain for the Fedora community. Please
remember that new packages will be added to Extras first and go to Core
if deemed suitable later by Core developers.
