My name is Robert-André and I'm looking to become a packager for Fedora.

I'm 33 years-old Frenchman. I first tried GNU/Linux in the late 90 with Debian 
and what was 
then Mandrake. Back then with no Internet, I remember It was tough to get set 
up and find 
help. After a Windows period, I got back to Linux in 2005 with Ubuntu's Hoary 
release. It was simple, almost everything worked out of the box, and I could 
work without
having to « look under the hood » to make it work.

Following what I thought was questionable relations between Ubuntu and 
upstreams, and their 
choices to reinvent the wheel, i decided look for alternative distributions. 
First Debian which 
was close to what I've been using, and then Fedora. I had some reservation 
about Fedora 
because last time I had tried one (Fedora 16, Verne), the package manager was 
quite slow 
compared to apt-get. And this meant a lot to relearn. But I was quickly 
conquered by its simplicity
and its « freshness ». And then dnf came around, it was fast and easy to use, 
and I haven't left
Fedora since then.

Thanks to the French fedora-fr wiki which explains step-by-step how to make 
your own package,
 I've recently started to package my own things using the COPR service:
And now I'm looking to get them into Fedora. I've learned Fedora Packaging 
Guidelines, and how
to use the various tool like rpmbuild, fedpkg, mock, Koji…

Here's a few of the projects I want to include:
 - rclone: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1473314 This Go app 
allows you to sync your
files among different Cloud services. I had to unbundled it so it spawned a 
dozen of new packages
to build (see the dependencies).
 - qdirstat: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1476201 It's an app 
that allow you to track
how your disk space is used, like k4dirstart, but written in Qt5.
 - libva-intel-hydrid-driver 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1475962 This driver enables
video hardware acceleration for VP9 decoding on Skylake/Kabylake platforms. 
(dependency cmrt: 

Since I proposed my packages, I've also started to do other reviews:
 - libcbor: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1474694
 - clustersos: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1476438
 - danmaQ: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1471806
 - xfce4-statusnotifier-plugin: 
 - libsemigroups: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1476085
 - tpm2-abrmd: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1475228

So if you like my work so far, please consider sponsoring me for the packaging 
team o/

Thank you.
