I have no problem with that, as long as there's somebody willing to maintain it :). It's a long time I didn't touch Fedora/RH, so I couldn't really help anybody with the spec. Just as a note, Debian generally suggests to have the packaging infrastructure as a different project unless it's a core Debian package. For example, it's common practice to patch sample configuration files and documentation to their actual installation paths without affecting the source package. No idea if that's considered good practice or not also in Fedora. (I'm telling just because I maintain a few packages in Debian). As for the code, I would suggest to use 0.13: http://www.thregr.org/~wavexx/software/dl/releases/dl-0.13.zip I'll write the announcement soon.
