I think (or at least hope) everyone here realizes that Fedora is going 
to be a much more interactive than the Red Hat releases.  It seems short 
sighted, however, to think that everyone needs to individually build 
their own RPMs and backport fixes in order to use Fedora.  I've read the 
FAQ, but I'm not clear on how those of us that are capable of creating 
the RPMs would be able to submit them for testing so that they might end 
up available to the general user population.  Looking at the Fedora 
tree, there is a structure for updates, with a section for testing.  
What is the process that one would have to go through in order to submit 
a package that will eventually make its way into the updates?  I'd be 
more than happy to participate in the process if I knew what it was.
