Packager Sponsor

Thanks to the nomination of my sponsor Jussi Lehtola and the positive feedback, I've received sponsor and provenpackager status myself.
If you'd like to join the Fedora packager group and are looking for a sponsor, feel free to contact me. I usually want you to do a couple of informal package reviews in order to familiarize yourself with the packaging guidelines and the reviewing process. Here's the list of open review requests waiting for your comments. ;-)
