This is not about reiser4, I took the reiser4 as an example because my
request to ambassadors group got rejected mainly because of "my work
is not official."

My only point here is, there is anything which helps fedora to grow
should not be ignored and treated like this way.

Coming to the packages which fedora generally wont ship, the list is
huge, I can be specific the ones those I have worked on: Even I can
package it, but need to wait for six months?
