Request to assume maintainership of greek fonts rpms



Hello,

After lurking for quite some time in the fedora lists, I think I can give it
a go and start maintain some Fedora Extras packages.  My first two packages
are tetex-font-kerkis (an extras orphan) and mgopen-fonts (a greek ttf font
released under a licence similar to bitstream vera).

The packages are in this location:
http://gallagher.di.uoa.gr/any/rpms/

For the tetex-font-kerkis package:

I have updated the package in CVS to support the newer tetex-3 shipped with
FC4, as can be seen in the bugs

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=159279 and
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=160300

For the mgopen-fonts package:

I have created an rpm containing the font files, modeled after the 
bitstream-vera rpm.  Information about this font can be found at 
http://www.ellak.gr/fonts/mgopen/

An RFE in bugzilla has more information about the licence, the origins, the
looks and other questions raised
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=158032

It is slated as FC5Target.  In the mean time, it would be good to have 
quality greek fonts as part of Extras.

Now, is there anything else I should do to promote these packages?  I will
apply for a CVS account if it is OK.

Thanks,

-- Sarantis
