I think Rich is talking about Etherpad-lite which doesn't need scala, but node.js.

Node.js is not shipped with Fedora due to bundled library madness ( which is quite unfortunate for us since it's gaining popularity amongst developers )  however I think T.C. Hollingsworth repository is the official unofficial repository for node.js for Fedora 15,16 and RHEL 5 & 6 hence any spec file written should require what ever is there I believe.
( feel free to correct me if i'm wrong ).

On related note do we have anykind of packaging guidelines/policy for components that uses node.js since we dont ship it?

For example could etherpad-lite be shipped with the distribution when it depends on 3 party repo or would it be put in T.C. Hollingsworth repository if he would be open for it along with any other component that requires node.js?
