Cool! (making Fedora a good platform for digital DJing) In the past
I've worked on getting as many packages as possible from planet ccrma
into Fedora to make it a better audio production platform. I've stopped
half way through because of lack of time though :|

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 xwax 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

Awesome! If you are at Summit I will look out for you.

I have played with their realtime kernel a tiny bit (just installed it).
I know what you mean on time though :-)

Ugh everything on that list that looked easy, or interesting either
was already done,
had no MakeFile/configure script, was incompatible with Fedora or
wouldn't build easily.

I have updated the wiki with the issues I ran into on six packages:

If you can add some on there that might be compatible with Fedora, and
have configure/MakeFiles I'd definitely be willing to take a shot.
Please update it, games are fun :-)

oh wait I see it has a lot of stuff already:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Games/WishList

I'll take a look.. this looks fun

I may do this in the mean time because packaging fonts at first seems
like it should be easy *crosses fingers*

maybe after I get another package review request up.

Thank you Hans for all the advice and info. I look forward to working
with you.

Tim Bielawa
 
Default Self Introduction

Hey all!

I'm Tim Bielawa, I work at Red Hat (as of Jan. 10 this year) and have
been working in IT in some kind of sysadmin type role for the last 4
years.

Package maintenance isn't a new concept to me as it was a major focus
point in my last role. In the past, when I worked with more Ubuntu
systems I even started down the road to being a MOTU.

Working with OSS projects is something I've been involved with for a
while. I kept track of most of my prior contributions online if you want
to check it out: http://www.tbielawa.com/opensource/

I just submitted a package review ticket on bugzilla if some one would
be so kind as to look at it [0]. The package is of a program called
Taboot. In brief, it's for scripted sysadminning using Func.

I'm the upstream maintainer, so you can rest assured that close contact
will be maintained. This is a program we depend on daily in my working
group so it will continue be receive updates.

I'm looking forward to making more future contribution!

Theodore Lee
 
Default Self Introduction

Hello there,

My name's Theodore Lee (also known as 'antiaircraft', for some odd
reason lost long ago in the mists of time). I'm a Malaysian university
student currently studying robotic engineering (not doing too well there
I'm afraid, due to spending far too much time tinkering with computers),
as well as a long-time Linux user, slightly less long-time Fedora user,
enthusiastic but inexperienced programmer, and generally obstinate FOSS
advocate. Hopefully I'll soon be a Fedora package maintainer too. =)

I'm not completely new to the FOSS scene, having been a user of various
free software projects for many years now. In that time I've done odd
bits of testing, filing bug reports, submitting (very) minor patches,
and similar stuff across various projects. I've also written a few
pieces of software of my own, for personal use and for a few websites I
help to run, although none of this software is really anything noteworthy.

After I started using Fedora I started putting together RPMs for various
bits and bobs (mainly bleeding edge versions of existing packages), and
eventually I realised that I might as well start doing this seriously
and help out others as well.

This is my first time contributing seriously to a free software project,
and I hope being new won't make me /too/ useless. =P

I currently have two review requests pending (one filed a few months back).

gst-entrans is a handy tool for constructing GStreamer pipelines:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=639518

php-pecl-yaml is a PHP wrapper for LibYAML:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=701866

Any feedback would be very much appreciated (sponsorship too, of course
;-) ).

You can find me at this email address (theo148@gmail.com), and as
antiaircraft on FAS and Freenode (although I'm not on IRC much).

I look forward to helping to develop Fedora!

Regards,
Theo

Excellent and welcome!

We use func in Fedora infrastructure, so this project is of interest to
me at least.

I'm not sure when I can get to it, but if no one beats me to it I will
look at reviewing your package and sponsoring you.

Welcome to the fun.

Default Self Introduction

Hi List,

My name is Andrew Nixon from Birmingham UK. I am looking to get involved in helping to package for Fedora. I have a particular interest in scientific applications / packages. I work in a small computer science group in a local hospital, where we do not specialize therefore I have experience of programming (mostly Java, C, Bash, and Python) as well as systems deployment and administration.


I am mostly involved in administering Solaris systems at work, although we do work with some RHEL and Fedora systems as well. I have had a linux install pretty much constantly at home for the last 10 years or so, all though have never really contributed to the wider community (up until now).


Thanks,

Andrew.

Ryan Lewis
 
Default Self Introduction

Hola Fedora developers,* My name is Ryan! Currently i'm a PhD student in computer science theory at dartmouth college. I'm a campus ambassador at dartmouth college. My research interests are in computational & applied topology for a brief introduction to field: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topological_data_analysis.*



I try to contribute to the community as a campus ambassador. I regularly give away install/live media buttons and stickers to just about everyone, and I use them as prizes when I TA computer science classes (which works really well for getting us dartmouth undergrads to contribute).*



I've just joined this list, and I'm learning now about how to write RPM spec files, with my ultimate goal of maintaining a few packages.* I recently got my koji browser certs, and I've been reading the guidelines.



I move pretty slowly on my own, if anyone nearby me is interested in helping me advance my packaging 'foo' as they say, i'd be open to the assistance!*

Cheers,* -rhl

Hi,
My name is Minh. I'm a vietnamese, but now I'm studying computer
sciences at Institute for applied system analysis at the National
technical university of Ukraine "KPI" (
http://tinyurl.com/googlemap-kpi**) .

I have got a little experience in the rpm package maintaining as a
package maintainer in the openSUSE project ( qxmpp, scim-unikey,
leechcraft, qmpdclient etc.). Some of them are in the mainstream (
scim-unikey and qxmpp ). Also I'm a contributor of Leechcraft project (
http://leechcraft.org/ ).

It would be an honor for me if you will consider my first package for
Fedora project https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=711313
