I have prepared some work:
It is known to build without missing dependencies, as all perl
dependencies are already in fedora. Only perl-Coro is still in Work in
Progress in Fedora. (needs perl-EV that needs libev).
For now I don't known which package needs perl-Coro in freshrpms...
At this time dvdrip still requires ogmtools which have been obsoleted
previously in livna.
It needs to be corrected according to if the package is available.
I can offer to import this package. I'm not particularly interested in

Cinelerra have seen some changes and improvements recently. I'm
already in touch with upstream and i've worked on a libmpeg-1.8 built
shared (the cinelerra-cv package will use it).
The most recent needs which is a legal issue requires to rename the
cinelerra package to cinelerra-cv because we will built the
CommunityVersion (and not the HerroineVirtual version).
There is a FOSS HV version which the CV is based on. But if you don't
have a headack trying to "compile" it , you will better buy support
for the closed source HV version.
the namespace rename will follow the package rename later. form the
git repository for the cinelerra-cv version.
I'm interested in co-maintainance.
(merge review will come soon)

I think we need to pick one of theses (the more recent one)
I have tried to raise this problem previously but without success
(might fill a bug)
The current mpeg321 in rpmfusion will obsoletes mpeg123 which is newer.
This is not acceptable. They should at least be parallele installable.
But IMO we should just pick the more recent one. (mpeg123)

mac should be in nonfree. if someone is interested.

lame should be updated (if it work at least):

I haven't checked others softwares from freshrpms
