I went looking, too, and the description of becoming a Fedora Extras
contributor is at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Contributors

- From what I see there, you don't offer an RPM to Fedora extras.  You offer an
SRPM (Source RPM) and a spec file (which defines how to build an RPM from the
SRPM).  The naming of the files and the contents of the spec file have to
conform to Fedora conventions.  Someone has to review them to make sure you've
correctly conformed to those conventions, approve your submission, and sponsor
you.  Once sponsored, you get access to Fedora's cvs repository, and are able
to cause RPMs for the package to be built within the Fedora Extras build system.

I can see why OH2BNS mentioned not only the skills necessary for this, but
also the time.

If this seems like a bit much, you might want to go with OH2BNS's suggestion
and try to hunt up whoever maintains the hamlib packages in Fedora Extras and
see if they're willing to handle gmfsk and xlog also.
