Because it is a big PITA to get Fedora to approve new package reviewers.
It is been months that cleber is dilligently going from review to review
to finally become one, but it usually takes 20 days every iteration. At
this staggering rate, he'll become a Fedora package mantainer by 2016.
Seriously, I've been thinking "ok, now the package maintainership thing
will be sorted out any minute now" for the past 4 months.
Now once he becomes a package maintainer, up to date packages will start
to show up.
