It appears to be still in active development (some files were

is all GPL, so shouldn't violate terms and conditions.
Someone with the time and interest in maintaining the package _in_fedora_ has
to package it per our packaging guideline as a binary RPM rather than a source
tarball, provide regular updates, and be willing to investigate/fix bugs, as
well as stay in regular contact with upstream developrs. It's definitely not
for the feint of heart, especially if you aren't actually interested in using
a package such as this, as it seems all of our current package maintainers
are. If you are interested in seeing this package in Fedora, I encourage you
to look at joining the Package maintainer group.
