Good luck.  (Seriously.)

I've been a Fedora developer for several years now, and I've been
building my own sawfish/librep/rep-gtk packages for even longer than
that.  (As Michal pointed out, the .spec files that the tarballs
contain are usually pretty good.)

But the main reason I never attempted to package sawfish for Fedora
was that I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to handle most of the
bug requests.  I'm a sawfish user, not a sawfish developer, and
packagers need to have good communication with "upstream".

However, if someone else wants to own the packages, I'll be happy to
help with packaging issues, as I'm very familiar with RPM specfiles
and the Fedora Packaging Guidelines.
