I don't really grok this paragraph. The point of voting is to see if
there is interest. If no one voted then, yes, that would indicate
that there was no interest.

I don't see it in Fedora 10 but it looks like it was included in the
"extras" package for older Fedoras.

It's a pretty simple process. You need the votes, then, if you get the
votes, you need a "GTG" on the packaging. It sounds like you don't have
either but the votes are the most crucial.
