Packaging for upstream

You need a rpm-package of an application or a game? You are envolved in a FOSS-project and you want a rpm-package in the download-section on your website? Just contact me. Let us speak about your software and the chance to get officially included in Fedora.
You already have a fedora wiki access? You can add your wish to the wishlist.

My "problem childs"

  • zsync - Isn't allowed in Fedora, because it ships a modified zlib, like rsync, to be wire compatible with rsync.
  • opentracker - It's a high customizable BitTorrent-Tracker and every user is using another list of features. It's impossible to please everybody.
  • i3 - Is not EWMH-compatible and will need a cairo with xcb support for further versions. Cairo with xcb support is not a part of Fedora. The cairo maintainer is also a part of upstream and won't enable this experimental backend to keep the software stable.
  • fife - Fedora is currently shipping a free gaming engine without any client, because the clients (like unknown horizons) are shipping non free sounds (partly in non-free codecs like mp3) and graphics.
