Add "mkrdns" to Fedora packages

SPEC file for mkrdns
Description of problem:
mkrdns is not in Fedora
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
yum list | grep -i mkrdns
mkrdns is a very useful tool for generating, and verifiying, reverse DNS tables for BIND. It's fairly old, it's stable, and is incredibly useful with GUI based or source controlled BIND configurations to auto-update the reverse DNS, and to correctly manage multiple A records for the same IP address.
I recently included its use in my presentation at Subversion Day, "SVNday" in Berlin, and would like to get it RPM bundled in Fedora and EPEL for future use. It's available at Repoforge, but I've had difficulty getting clients to accept non-RHEL or EPEL components in working environments.
Also, for reference, the .spec file is the one from Repoforge: I actually submitted that one to them, and they understandably reset the "Packager" and "Vendor", which you'd need to reset for EPEL inclusion.
See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join#OS_Developer for information on getting packages into Fedora and maintaining them. I'm moving this to "Package Review".
This is not a bug.
Add mkrdns to the Fedora wishlist.
... or as instructed by Bill in comment #2, join the Fedora maintainers and submit your package for review.
