Webcam on Dell xps 13 plus (9320) Intel ipu6

Hello!
The dell xps 13 plus 9320 ships with a webcam that has driver that is not upstreamed to mainline Linux kernel. Resulting in users with webcams that doesn’t work out of the box.
(Well explained here: Greg KH Recommends Avoiding Alder Lake Laptops - Intel Webcam Linux Driver Long Ways Out - Phoronix)

Intel have made a repo that hosts the driver, but it is a pain to install on Fedora. A lot of manuel steps, and hard for users to follow.

Someone packaged some of the packages in RPM Fusion Nonfree:

ipu6-camera-bins.x86_64 : Binary library for Intel IPU6
ipu6-camera-bins-devel.x86_64 : IPU6 header files for development.
ipu6-camera-bins-firmware.x86_64 : IPU6 firmware

But the rest of the repoes still needs to be packaged and install manually:

I was wondering why some of the packages is packaged in epel nonfree, and the rest is not. Have anyone made a good guide on fedora on how to install this? My search-foo can’t find it.
