No, not at all. This tool would create spec files that after some minor
manual tweaks could be included as a part of Fedora.

This tool would download *source* tarballs and extract metadata from
pom.xml files creating package skeleton with one artifact per subpackage,
%build section consisting of mvn-rpmbuild and so on. Such package would
meet packaging guidelines and could definitely  be used to package
software for inclusion in Fedora.
