Its a go. See Etherpad FAD for more info.
There's a not really guidelines compliant version alive here: http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/sdz/etherpad/
Etherpad bundles a good chunk of libraries. Some of them are already packaging in Fedora, some aren't.
Moving towards a package of Upstream
Based on SDZ spec (see "not really guidelines compliant version") and tons of packages by JStanley and Spot (see chart below)

Libraries bundled in Etherpad
|file name||fedora package||status|
|c3p0-0.9.1.2.jar||review||Heavily patched to work on Java 1.6 and the project seems dead. Request to move Etherpad to Apache Commons DBCP submitted upstream.|
|mchange-commons-0.2||review||Required for c3p0 building|
|rhino-js-1.7r1.jar||review||contains proprietary extensions which are patched around. R1 is needed for yuicompressor to work, we have R2 in Fedora. R1 with appjet patches package.|
Scala Version Issue Compat Packages
Etherpad requires an old version of Scala (upstream ticket)

Notes from Victor Vasilyev
I've successfully compiled and launched the project on the Fedora 13, and can confirm that is working well. But, I've also noticed that the Google wave has a bit more facilities :-(
After a brief researching of the project I've opinion that you'll have a lot of the tasks that should be completed before release of the project for the Fedora Linux distribution will happen. I see at least the following tasks:
- Decomposing of the project, and selecting of all "internal" and "external" components.
- Replacing the all third-party components with the requirements for each component to have a list of all external dependencies.
- Providing of the RPM packages for required third-party components that are not in Fedora yet (if any).
- Dividing of all external dependencies into build-time and run-time dependencies.
- Sorting of all "internal" components by their languages, and avoiding unneeded languages to simplify the project.
I think, you should also decide to use a build system that is "usual" for Java (e.g. Ant, Maven, etc.) instead of Bash-scripts.
...And, finally, will be better to see a components diagram for the project (e.g. UML components diagram) that might explain a role of each component, and their dependencies.

- There is a complete set of RPMs on http://mcepl.fedorapeople.org/rpms/etherpad/ for RHEL-6/EPEL. Absolutely no support, and no testing ("It builds? Ship it!")
