Nice, I hope you will manage to have WPE neatly packaged for Fedora. Currently
usability on desktop is limited and I expect that only WebKit's “MiniBrowser”
will work with stable packages. Currently the other well supported browser,
which is Cog [1], needs a Git build of WPEBackend-fdo.

On a related note, if you run into any trouble with the packaging, feel free
to send an e-mail here to the list and add me in CC: I have been packaging WPE
myself, and just this weekend I have pushed packages to the Arch Linux AUR.
Feel free to take a look for inspiration with packaging:

  - WPEBackend:

  - WPEBackend-fdo:

  - WPE WebKit:

  - Cog:

(For people using Arch Linux, installing “cog-git” will pull the needed
dependencies as well, probably it's the easiest wy right now of trying WPE.)

Best regards,
