It's a far from perfect solution, but Fedora contributors are allowed
to create a personal repository hosted on fedorapeople.org.
Theoretically it could cause small issues on upgrades if the package
for the next release isn't available and they're not well advertised,
but it is an option. I haven't jumped through the hoops to create a
personal repository yet but I'm willing to if there's enough interest.
I'm the Fedora maintainer for openCOLLADA and OpenImageIO so I have
those dependencies covered.
