The issue is, it takes time to get packages reviewed since there are
about 700 review requests pending. If we had 2 people on Fedora (1
will package, 1 will review) then things would go faster. But as 1
person, I am packaging stuff and waiting some external person to take
time to review the package. a2jmidi, for instance, I submitted it for
review months ago and nobody looked at it yet.

But I can't force anyone to become a packager. It takes time to learn
and get into it, especially if the person does not have some
programming background. I am just announcing here, if there is anyone
who can spare a couple hours every week and is willing to do packaging
work, we would be very pleased.

Yeah, I don't know of an email address of him that he checks and
replies emails. I tried a couple addresses of him I found here and
here but no luck still.

When the updates get signed and put into updates-testing repo (takes a
couple days after my announcements), you can temporarily enable the
updates-testing repo for once to install specific packages, like
$ yum --enablerepo updates-testing update muse
$ yum --enablerepo updates-testing install ladspa-wasp-plugins
etc. When this command finishes its work, your updates-testing repo
will be disabled.
