Greetings. 

FESCo has added an additional path to becoming a co-maintainer of an
existing package in the Fedora package collection for folks who are not
currently in the packager group. 

Traditionally, you would gain sponsorship by submitting a new package
you create and demonstrating your understanding of the guidelines and
processes from the review process. 

This new path requires you to convince an existing maintainer
to mentor you in the processes and guidelines of package maintenance,
and would allow you to be sponsored by FESCo or an existing sponsor to
co-maintain those package(s) with your mentor guiding you. 

Please see: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_get_sponsored_into_the_packager_group
For the full description and process for this path to becoming a package
maintainer.
