Nice!
i would like to get in.
i'm (still) not registered at the fedora wiki but will do that soon
and i will try to help with packaging stuff. i will probably need a
lot of help there to just get started but i'm more than willing to
learn that. I hope to be able to do bug zapping as well. Designing is
something that i could do right away but i like to get started with
the packaging first.

btw what are packages that need to be packaged? is there a list of them?
