If MailScanner could be added to Fedora's repositories then I'm sure that
a lot of people would be pleased.
I think the main problem will be in finding manpower to keep up with the
very-frequent MailScanner releases, updating and testing the Fedora
packages each time. I suspect that using the MailScanner rpm tar files,
with some fiddles if needed, is likely to be the easiest way to keep going
unless we can get a lot of people to help.

Nope, I'm mainly a web developer, with very limited knowledge of the
details of packaging things.

I might be interested, but have many other jobs to do.
