Fwd: Package submission - rubygem-chef and dependencies looking for sponsor

Hello all:

I've submitted a bunch of package submissions which need a sponsor.
I'm working with opscode ( http://www.opscode.com/ ) to package and
maintain the Chef client and its dependencies.  The goal is to get
Chef into Fedora 18 (or even 17 if possible in a post-release
timeframe?) and eventually into EPEL as well.

Chef is a open source integration framework with a focus on cloud
automation.  It's largely Ruby-based (hence all the packages I'm
submitting being based off of Ruby gems); the client works with both
the standalone server and Opscode's hosted chef platform.

I realize that with the Fedora 17 crunch at its peak right now there
might be a shortage of people to review packages, but please let me
know if you're interested and when you might be able to take some time
to review all of this.

Thanks everyone!

The main package submission, for rubygem-chef, is here:
