In the 0.6 set of packages there are 2 that stand out as generic
packages that Fedorans may find interesting.

Be warned though -

 - The packaging is I think reasonably good but is probably not to
Fedora standards.
 - They are orphaned upstream. Carrying them in the Fedora
repositories (and resulting increased exposure) may re-kindle interest
in them... or just place a bigger burden on packagers.

The packages are:

 - usbmount

   Git repo http://dev.laptop.org/git/users/martin/usbmount.git/
