Greetings!  One minor wrinkle:

io-language is already in Fedora.

In the interest of not raining on your parade, I'll give you two pieces of
information.  One, we have a Wishlist of things that might be good places
to start pacakging.

Two, I'm the Fedora maintainer of the existing Io-language RPM, so if
you're amenable, I might take a look and see if there's anything I can
apply to the current package.  Also, if you're familiar with Io-language
and want to co-maintain it once sponsored, that's fine as well.

Once you submit other reviews, feel free to shoot me an email with BZ
numbers, since I can also sponsor new packagers.

Peace and welcome,
