The last I heard from the Arch packaging efforts was that Unity won't be an 
officially supported package until it no longer depends on non-upstream patches 
to GTK+ and friends. 

The same seems to be true for OpenSuse:

I don't think I'm going out on a limb if I say that this doesn't look like 
Unity will hit Fedora repos anytime soon. You may look at 
repos.fedorapeople.org, though.

As far as I remember Adam Williamson once looked at the feasibility of 
packaging Unity for Fedora. Don't know what was the result, though. Maybe he 
can elaborate on that.
