Either create an rpm file that users can do a quick rpm install with, or
send them a copy of the .repo file to copy to their /etc/yum.repos.d/

Once they have that (it needs to be enabled as well), and do a yum
install or upgrade pacakage, it will check for your package as well as
the main Fedora repos for any dependencies and automatically install
