Packages

He also maintains a LOT of packages in Fedora. He used to keep a list here, but it was a pain to maintain. Pkgdb has this list: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/users/packages/spot?acls=owner&acls=commit (some things I only co-maintain, or are dead packages now)


While I do sponsor new Packagers, I do so rarely these days, mostly because I'm super busy.

Here is a list of some of the people I've sponsored:

Chuck R. Anderson
Dmitry Butskoy
Jeff Carlson
Didier Casse
Mark Cox
Kushal Das
Patrice Dumas
Ralf Ertzinger
Kevin Fenzi
Chris Grau
Kevin Gray
Ed Hill
Dan Horák
Neil Horman
Patrick Laughton

José Matos
Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski
Karen Rei Pease
Ian Pilcher
Orion Poplawski
