I don't regularly use eclipse-fedorapackager, but I have a few
enhancements on my TODO list (and as always, lacking time to actually
implement them).

Most important feature I have in mind - support for Copr. Java API is
already included in Copr upstream at [1]. Michael Simacek is (or was)
working on the GUI part. I think that this feature could help new
contributors who are not familiar with packaging tools, but want to
create or customize packages and publish them in Copr. (This would be
integrated with DevAssistant too.)

(Personally I don't care about Bodhi2 support too much - I submit
updates only like once a month or so.)
