Hello!

My name is Justin, I go by brutal_chaos on IRC, don't be
shy say hi. I come to you in hopes of becoming a (good) package maintainer for
Fedora. I am starting off by packaging a new python package, python-construct, and I am
looking for sponsorship. Below is the link to my first package's review
request. Please, have a look, let me know what you think!

Welcome to Fedora. Kevin Fenzi has sponsored you
(https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/579) and I have agreed to be a
mentor approved your request to be a co-maintainer for Deluge. You
applied only in Fedora 14 branch. Make sure you apply for Fedora 15 and
devel as well. Removing need sponsor from the review request. Let
me know (offlist or on irc) if you have any questions.

Rahul

Default Self Introduction

Hi all, I'm a RH QA engineer located in Brno. I searched the web for some nice
command line calendar which could track events and I found pal [1]. It is
practical and I'm using it.

It is a simple piece of code, included in Debian, but not yet in Fedora. So for
me this looks not only like a useful piece of code, but also as a piece of code
suitable for my educational purposes

I pinged the upstream (Scott Kuhl, Martijn van Oosterhout) and they are both
fine with adding pal to Fedora under my maintenance. So I created a review
request [2] and now I'm looking for a sponsor.

I hope I'll get a chance to add my first package to Fedora! :-)

Martin

Nice to meet you. I'm a long time Fedora contributor, and since
2.5 years a software engineer for RH

I'm a sponsor and I would be happy to sponsor you. But first I would like
to see slightly more of your packaging skills / understanding of the
Fedora packaging guidelines (I already took a quick look
at your pal package). There are 2 ways to show your package ninja skills,
you can create 1 or 2 more packages (which I will then review together with
pal), see here for a list of potential candidates:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/WishList

If you would be interested in packaging up a game or 2 let me know and I'll
update the Games SIG wishlist page, as I think that needs some love

Also we can always use some more nice fonts in Fedora, see the fonts wishlist,
and also:
http://mairin.wordpress.com/category/unpackaged-font-of-the-week/

Or instead of doing some more packages, you could do some unofficial
reviews, also described here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_get_sponsored_into_the_packager_group

Regards,

Hans

Default Self Introduction

Greetings all!

My name is Nicholas van Oudtshoorn - long time Fedora user, first time (hopefully!) contributor.

One of my jobs (apart from being a church pastor) involves taking care of the IT systems for a local seminary here in Perth, Western Australia. We've been running Fedora on our servers for several years now - basically because it's the distro I find the most intuitive!

As part of my duties, I manage the seminary's library software - Koha. Although this runs fine under Fedora, quite a few of it's dependencies are not available in the Fedora repositories. Given the number of libraries using koha (big and small - check out http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Koha_Users_Worldwide ), I suspect that rectifying this could be of some use!


To this end, I've started packaging up build requirements. The first package I've made (boy - it's more complex than it seems at first :-) ) is for the Zebra database engine. After that, I'd like to work on the perl packages that are missing. (CPAN is useful - but yum is *so* much easier!) I'd also like to see about updating the yaz package. (yaz is currently available in Fedora - but is quite a few versions behind the upstream)


Anywho - just thought I'd introduce myself. I've loved using Fedora over the last years - and am excited about the possibility of giving something back.

Nicholas van Oudtshoorn

Great, you can join Perl SIG ;-) We can help you with reviews of Perl
packages.

That's great! I picked spindown daemon from the WishList. I packaged it and
created a review request https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=700571

If you won't explicitly stop me I'll try to create one more new package as
you requested 1 or 2 of them :-)

With best regards,

Martin

Here is my third package ready for review (colorgcc):
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=700833
Please, be so kind and have a look at it.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi, I'm new to contributing but not new to Linux. I started on RHL 7.1
around 2000 and have used Slackware, Gentoo and Debian in the past. I
was active at my university LUG and Gaming Club (running the game
servers on Slackware) and now I work for Red Hat since August 2007 in
support.

I have been building RPMs for myself on and off almost since I started
at Red Hat and switched from Debian to Fedora. I built RPMs for
Rivendell [1] which is a large radio automation suite and some
recommended getting that into Fedora but at the time it seemed too
daunting.

Now I am getting into DJing and in particular using FOSS to do it. I
have used Mixxx and xwax. I am becoming the co-maintainer of Mixxx in
rpmfusion [2] and have just submitted my first package review request
for Fedora for xwax. [3] I would like to make Fedora a good platform
for digital DJing.

Mixxx was affected by a portaudio bug that had been fixed in Ubuntu
but not Fedora so I opened a bug [4] on that and got that fixed.

I have created a mixxx on fedora page for the Mixxx wiki. [5]

My FAS account is John2583 but you can find me on Freenode as
JBstrikesagain (I think that username was too long for FAS).
I am in #fedora and #fedora-devel among other channels.

You can check out my website to see some other stuff I do:
