Enet update for Red Eclipse packaging, request for help

Hello, I'm in the process of packaging the game Red Eclipse[0] for
Fedora (bug #800930[1]), but in order for Red Eclipse to not bundle the
Enet lib, it needs to be updated from 1.2 to 1.3 in Fedora (bug #739313
[2]). There seems to currently be only one package depending on
enet/enet-devel in Fedora, which is egoboo, which does FTBFS on an
updated Enet (bug #799778[3]).

Updating the packaging for Enet to 1.3 seems to be trivial (bump
version, re-download, changelog), and I have created a patch for
Egoboo[3] which fixes the FTBFS and allows *launching*. I have not
tested *running* the game with the patch applied (would be great if
someone with graphics acceleration in Fedora could test ;).

The current maintainer of both Egoboo and Enet seems busy and has not
had time to update Enet since a request[2] was filed in Sep 2011. And
did, at least earlier, say that it would be fine if another proven
packager took care of it.

Also worth noting is that Egoboo is outdated in Fedora 2.7.5 vs upstream
2.8.1, however this update may introduce (if it's not already there) a
bad movement key bug[5], making it pretty much unplayable on Linux, and
I don't think there's a proper beta release for GNU/Linux beyond this..

I'd like to know how I'd best go about fixing Enet so that I may be able
to get Red Eclipse into Fedora, are there any proven packagers around
that may be willing to update Enet and add this patch to Egoboo?
