The Fedora Packagers are the folks behind the scenes that take all the new software coming down from upstream and build them for the rest of us to use on Fedora.

Recently, the Fedora Infrastructure Development team announced the new version of PackageDB — a tool especially for packagers — was available for use. Fedora currently distributes over 16000 packages, and PackageDB is the application that manages the permissions (who can update what, who is the bugzilla assignee, etc) for packages.
