The great thing about Fedora is that anybody can become a contributor.
If you find software that you want to use but it isn't in Fedora, you
can actually bring it to Fedora and own it there.

That or you can request (via wish lists) that somebody else do the
packaging work.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join  is a great starting point if you want to package software for Fedora.
