Hi Seth,
It's good to see our circles are crossing again.

then you're "not using IRC", but a plain HTTPS website, and you're still
connected to the Freenode network. Security-wise, it's not any more
"insecure" than any other HTTPS site.

(There's also a plain HTTP version if some "security" policy chokes on the
CACert certificate.)

Hi Ulrich,

Since you are packaging gems for Ruby, it would be also wise to join
Fedora's Ruby SIG [1].

Yes, indeed. I went through this in autumn. We have ONE3.0 up and running on an SL(C)6 box. For that I had to package some gems which
were at the time not provided upstream yet. I compiled a list of the gems which I have on this server, which I put here:
http://uschwick.home.cern.ch/uschwick/ONE/gems.txt
I do not know how useful this list is.

Who else is working on this ? The gems I have may require a bit of work to make them compliant with the packaging policies. Also, at least for
one, I could not use the latest upstream version, and it was indeed not actually required.

I cannot promise that I will have time to join the meeting during the week end.

Jayson Vaughn
 
Default Self Introduction

Hello developers/packagers,

My name is Jayson Vaughn.* I'm a member of the Fedora QA team (proventesters) and Fedora bugzapper team.
Now, I am very interested and willing to assist with RPM packaging or package maintenance.


I am a professional systems engineer and currently work for Rent-A-Center.* I have been using Linux since I was a wee lad back in 1994.* I have been using Fedora since it's inception.
I have written and contributed to several projects using Ruby, Python, and C.

To get started I would like to have a python application I wrote included in Fedora's repos.* The application is called "Cover Grabber".* Basically, if supplied a directory as an argument, cover grabber will recursively traverse a directory of media files (such as mp3) and proceed to download album cover art from LastFM.* Cover Grabber helps immensely if you have hundreds or even thousands of directories of Music.*


Here is the bugzilla link for the package review: * https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=761063

Since this is my first time to package an application for Fedora, I am requesting a sponsor.


I am usually always idling on freenode under the nick thedonvaughn.

Thanks all and I look forward to contributing!

Default Self introduction

Hi all,
my name is Mattia Verga, I live in Italy, and even if I don't work in
the IT sector (I work for a telephone company) I would be glad to become
a Fedora contributor.
My experience in Fedora started with Fedora Core 1 (even before I
occasionally used Red Hat) and from Fedora Core 3 I completely switched
from Win to Linux. In the past I occasionally created some rpm for self
purpose, now I would like to contribute to maintain some packages in the
official repositories.
For my first try I upgraded an existing package because some months
after a newer stable release was available, the repos are still stuck at
the old one. Following the wiki on how to become maintainer, I should
create a review request, but I cannot because the package already
exist... however I would appreciate if anyone with spare time can give a
look to my .spec and .src.rpm to see if my modification to make the
newer version able to compile are in the right way of doing things! ;-)
Instead of a review I opened a bug against the package to ask the
maintainer do the upgrade. The link is
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=769454


Thank you.

Mattia

First of all welcome to the Fedora community!

You did the right thing by creating a new package for skychart.
Since skychart is already in Fedora things are slightly more complicated
then simply following:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers

As said following:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers
Is more or less correct, but first you should follow:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Policy_for_nonresponsive_package_maintainers

I believe you can consider the filing of bug 769454 as your first contact
attempt the get in touch with the current skychart maintainer, it would
be good to add a comment to the bug that you're invoking the
nonresponsive package maintainer policy asap, and then another comment
asking for a status update on the 27th. Also although this is not
outlined in the policy, please try sending the maintainer a direct
email. Things will be somewhat easier if we can get the current maintainer
in the loop and make you a co-maintainer rather then having you completely
takeover the package.

Assuming you won't become a co-maintainer, then as outlined in:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Policy_for_nonresponsive_package_maintainers

Once you've permission to take ownership of skychart it needs to be
re-reviewed and you need to find someone to sponsor you. I'm a sponsor
and I would be happy to sponsor you in this case. So if all contact
attempts fail, please file a normal review bug for skychart as outlined
here:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers

And drop me a mail, then I'll review it and once any issues I may find
are resolved I'll sponsor you.

Regards,

hans

Default Self introduction

Thank you Hans for your precise suggestions!
I will follow them and I will try to contact the maintainer (and the
co-maintainer that already exist) directly by email. This is not an
urgent update, it doesn't fix any security issue in current package, and
with Christmas holidays in the next days I will wait some more days to
have a response from the current maintainer before acting as the
"Policy_for_nonresponsive_package_maintainers " says.


I will also take note of your email for being reviewed and sponsored
when time will come!

Thank you again

Mattia

Default Self Introduction

Hi,
I'm not usually one for these self-intro posts, but "when in Rome".
I'm Ed Marshall, and I've been working with Fedora and Red Hat distributions professionally for...well, for quite a few years now, building RPMs for internal consumption and personal use as needed.*I currently work at Twitter doing operations engineering and development, and I've had the good fortune to work in the vicinity of folks like Troy Dawson (congrats again on the new job, by the way) in former lives as well.

I took up packaging up Fritzing (design software for PCB developers and electronics geeks) for Fedora a year or so ago to scratch a personal itch, and it looks like it's finally time for it to live here properly (BZ #666311). Chitlesh Goorah was kind enough to sponsor me for this; thanks again!

So, uh, hi. Glad to be here!

I've been using fedora since Fedora Core 6 (or so), I'm also member of
Fedora Quality Assurance and Infrastructure teams.


I would like to start contributing to fedora packaging, and I'm looking
for a sponsor (I'm familiar with rpm and I did some commenting on review
requests in the past).


Here's my packages that need a review:
