Maxim Burgerhout
 
Default Short intro

Hi,

My name is Maxim Burgerhout and I'd like to start contributing to
Fedora development by maintaining a couple of packages. I work as a
sysadmin / Linux consultant for my daytime job. Over the last couple
of years, I have mainly worked with Red Hat boxes. During several
training sessions I had at Red Hat over the past few years, I learned
to create RPM's (amongst other things, of course) and I maintain a
good number of them for internal use. Those are admittedly not build
by the Fedora Guidelines, but I did my best to follow them correctly.

I have created a couple of review requests already (linked below). I
have packaged a couple of programs to get Yubikey support into Fedora.
Yubikeys are fairly low-tech hardware tokens that generate one-time
passwords. There's a couple of programs in Fedora to deal with them
already: pam_yubico and ykclient. I have packaged a library and a
client tool to customize the AES key in the device.

As I am (or hope to be) a new packager, I will need sponsorship. I'll
be more than happy to answer any questions about myself or the
packages if this is required.

I apologize if it is not customary to send introductions to these lists.

My two review requests are at:
1. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=557776
2. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=557794

Kind regards,

Maxim Burgerhout

Firstly, welcome!

Initial mailings to the list are great, especially as its clear you've
done some groundwork already.

It looks like someone has already reviewed one of your packages. I
would advise persistence in getting them reviewed and accepted. There
is plenty of info on the wiki which will hopefully help.

#fedora-devel on IRC is also very helpful, especially when it isn't
getting spammed.
