If you are interested in becoming a co-maintainer for a package, you
will have to contact the maintainer in question and request them to
mentor you.   The first thing, you got to do is read about the process
and guidelines and make yourself familiar with it as much as possible.  
I recommend the following references



If you want me to mentor,  The packages I maintain are listed at


You can chose one in this list to be a co-maintainer or I can pick one
for you.  Among these, aria2, transmission,  deja-dup, simple-scan,
shotwell and transmission-remote-cli get frequent updates.  Others less
so.    When upstream does a new release,  you can prepare a spec file
patch and I can help you commit it and push an update.  I can also
answer any questions related to any of this.   We can do that here or
offlist if necessary.
