I've recently been packaging applications for the fedora medical
initiative. There are quite a few of them. If you have some time to
spare, please review a few (or just one). Even if you're not a sponsored
packager, I encourage you to please review them unofficially. It will
improve your understanding of the guidelines, and also pick out quite a
few errors and help me :)
Of course, if you accept a ticket, I will review a package for you in
Please have a look at the following url:
The ones needing reviews are the ones in the "depends on" field.
My name is Jitesh. I have been a long time Fedora User (I've seen it
go from "Fedora Core" to "Fedora" ;-) ) and now I'd like to be a
package maintainer (and hopefully pick up packages I care about along
I did my undergrad in PICT, Pune and right now I am pursuing an MS. I
have worked a couple of years from 2008-2010 at Marvell India Pvt.
Ltd. I did some initial Fedora-ARM work while at Marvell, so I have
some limited exposure to the Fedora development protocols. I can write
spec files and I can work with koji, etc etc. After almost a year-long
hiatus, I finally have enough spare time to start getting involved in
Fedora. I am not a maintainer yet, so I thought I should start with
filing a review request (Is this still how it is done? File a review
request, get a sponsor?).
Theoretically I could pick up a package from here:
but, I just wanted to ask the list if there is any specific package
someone has in mind that is "good to have". Anyone?
I might also need some hand holding for the first review request.
Good to be back!

I'd surely like this  on my Fedora box. Its quite useful for quick
boot time profiling for an embedded device.
I'd have tried packaging it myself - and learned packaging too :) but
am somewhat having a time crunch for a while.
