I started lurking on some of the #fedora channels and jumped on a bunch
of the mailing lists.  In the end, listening to a lot of the
discussions finally concvinced me that I wanted to be part of the
project, so I just went ahead and signed up and contributed my package.

I am trying to get my work to use RHEL/CentOS more and more, and so
getting the packages in place in an "official" repo (EPEL) is somewhat
important to that.  In this case I had the power to make it happen
myself and so it was worth signing up and I'm glad I did.
