I would like to become a Fedora package maintainer. I've long been a
proponent of Free Software, and have been a Fedora user for about three
years now (Gentoo before that, and Red Hat before that). I work at Red
Hat as a contributor to the Pulp project:

I've been contributing to Fedora by running alphas, betas, and rawhide
and trying to file quality bug reports with Fedora and upstream projects
so that bugs can get fixed before they get released to the stable
Fedoras. I've enjoyed this work, and want to get more involved so I
decided to pursue becoming a package maintainer.

I've filed a request to add a new package called ari-backup:

ari-backup is a simple wrapper around rdiff-backup that allows admins to
describe their backup jobs in simple Python files. It adds the ability
to manage LVM or ZFS snapshots so that the backups can be crash
consistent. I am one of the contributors to ari-backup.

Let me know if there is anything I can or should do to aide in the
review process. I look forward to participating even more in Fedora!
