Initial mailings to the list are great, especially as its clear you've
done some groundwork already.
It looks like someone has already reviewed one of your packages. I
would advise persistence in getting them reviewed and accepted. There
is plenty of info on the wiki which will hopefully help.
#fedora-devel on IRC is also very helpful, especially when it isn't
