I wanted to start contributing to the Fedora project by starting to
package fonts as I heard its the best and easiest way to start. But

There are specific guidelines for font packaging here in the font
packaging lifecycle. Have you looked at these yet? I suggest you look
at a simple font that is already in Fedora and understand the spec. You

contains essential information on the spec file. The "how to package a
hello world" wiki page is another page you *must* go through.
Quite a few of us are around on the #fedora/#fedora-india/#fedora-devel
IRC channels. If you run into issues, you can always ask for help there.
Here's how to get started with the IRC
