Hi Christopher,

In order to maintain Fedora packages you need to be a sponsored Fedora
packager.

Please read
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join
if you would like to join.

These packages will still be on Fedora 15 even if nobody picks them
up, but they will be on Fedora 16 only if someone picks them up.

Best,
Orcan
