Hello,

As per the instructions at the web page at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Join_the_package_collection_maintainers I
wanted to give a brief introduction.

My name is Gary Gatling and I work at North Carolina State University
supporting Linux in the college of engineering. I mainly work with Red Hat
Enterprise Linux.

I recently I bought a laptop that ended up having optimus hybrid graphics.
This means it has both a discrete and a integrated GPU. I learned that the
people who made a solution for such laptops with nvidia GPUs did not have
packages for fedora or rhel. This made me sad so I decided to try to learn
how to package their software.
Am open to making any changes you guys would need. I know the current
instructions at:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bumblebee
could be made much easier if the software existed in the form of rpm
packages.

The packages review requests are at:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=834127

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=827167

Thanks for your consideration, esp considering Linus' remarks lately to
NVidia on this very topic...  :)

Also, sorry if this is a duplicate. I had to change some of my email
settings.
