Default Self Introduction and Mentor Request

I've been a Fedora user since FC5 but hadn't contributed until I started
working for Red Hat earlier this year as part of Fedora QA, spending
most of my time on AutoQA. Prior to starting at Red Hat, I was working
on an internal test automation framework for storage device firmware.

I was planning to wait until I had participated in more reviews or
submitted a new package but I use python-pip and when I saw it was about
to be orphaned, I thought that I would try to take over maintenance. At
this point, I've only participated in part of the review for py.test [1]
and am still quite new to the process.

Since I would be new to packaging, I need to find a mentor before taking
on python-pip. I am very much interested in learning the ropes and would
appreciate it if someone was willing to help me learn as a mentor.

Thanks,

Tim
