> Instead of having to submit your own package for review and prove your
> expertise by reviewing other packages and so on,  there is a easier way
> now.  You can become a co-maintainer by agreeing to be mentored by any
> existing package maintainer and one of the sponsors will sponsor you
> based on this agreement to work together.  I tried this method and
> recently Christopher Smart became a co-maintainer to deja-dup and pushed
> a few updates already via this method (afaik the first person to do
> so).   It took only two or three days of discussions (admittedly a lot
> of them) for the whole process.
> All of the existing Fedora package maintainers, interested in getting
> people to participate can follow the recently documented policy and I
> would be happy to mentor anyone interested as well.
