 Dear James

 Thank you for the offer to sponsor me. I have read and understood the
 prove_tester instructions at the Fedora Wiki, and have been using the
 updates-testing repo enabled for a significant number of tests of pre-
 release packages since the earliest days of Fedora (since FC1). I am also
 familiar with the process to add karma and comments to tested packages via
 bodhi, though I have not explicitely used the fedora-easy-karma facility

 I have been following the debate on establishing the proventester group
 with interest, and am happy with the process. I look forward to helping in
 the QA effort with Fedora package testing including critpath packages, and
 at present have Fedora 12 and 13 running on several machines.
