General rule of what goes in is that it always depends on the author of 
the particular collection.

For collections coming from SCLo SIG group (community), the best thing 
to do would be sending pull requests on github as mentioned bellow and 
contact this ML if nothing happens (not everybody tracks github 

For collections coming from Red Hat (usually those with rh- prefix), we 
have quite strict rule, that we don't want to include anything what is 
not included in RHSCL packages. So, what might be more successful 
strategy for collections coming from Red Hat is reporting bug to the Red 
Hat Bugzilla and increase probability of inclusion by contacting Red Hat

I think that means I would need to send patches for the spec files to RedHat but I can't figure out where those specs actually live (i.e. which git repo to send a patch in for). Anyone have a direction to look at? Taking rh-python34 as an example, SCLo links to COPR (https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/rhscl/rh-python34-el7) but COPR links to 404'd git repo (http://copr-dist-git.fedorainfracloud.org/cgit/rhscl/rh-python34-el7/rh-python34.git).
