Just a note: I asked Uwe to submit the package for RPM Fusion (after he 
added it to the wishlist), as back then (a week or two ago) it afaics 
looked highly unlikely that zfs-fuse will make it into Fedora.

Also note that Uwe mentioned the Fedora review request in his RPM Fusion 
bugzilla review request.

Which is also from Uwe ;-)

I totally disagree; we had situations where it took months to get the 
legal status in Fedora resolved. RPM Fusion for such timeframes imho is 
a acceptable home for a package. But sure, if it looks like this will be 
resolved quicker (like it does now) then it makes no sense to get it 
into RPM FUsion.
