Default Some questions - new maintainer

Hello List

I am currently working with these two packages to bring them into Fedora
(I also lead (co)-develop and maintain them):

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=644711
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=699843

A few weeks ago I set up an auto-responder as I migrated our website to
http://www.interlinux.org.uk , apologies to anyone that received
unwanted bounces. Thanks to a Red Hat employee for notifying me by
phone. I recently changed the way the code IP was managed from a
business model and am moving towards a Code Foundation organizational
structure. The projects now have access to a RHEL data center hosted
server safe for OSS community development.

Currently, I'm working as a full time RHEL SA in a hosting environment,
more about me here: http://uk.linkedin.com/in/dbrasher I expect to
continue developing mainly during weekends.

I am now reading through the most important packaging documentation
again and will soon be ready to provide a reciprocal package review.

I noted in Bug 644711 that perhaps it would be more efficient to review
one of the dependencies - is this necessarily the case?

Best Regards

Not necessarily but I think it is in your self interest to do you. What
is important is doing enough reviews or whatever is necessary to
demonstrate enough understanding of the packaging guidelines and Fedora
process for any sponsor to feel comfortable enough to approve you. This
is somewhat subjective but doing more reviews can't hurt and it is a
area where not much attention is given and any help would be appreciated.
