While the grammar was poor in the original message, it doesn't hurt that
Gene pointed it out.  However, that would be the least of my "worries".

I would think about the following....

1.  The "blackhat" project is based on "reactos" which is itself in alpha
release.  Not sure why anyone would start a project based on alpha software.

2.  The OP asks "i was wondering if you would be willing to put your
name...".   Now is he asking for the "Fedora Project" to put its name on it
or every individual on the mailing list.  I get the feeling he really means
the "Fedora Project" since he is trying to entice with "permenant ad space"
and other gifts for minor help.  (I copied and spelling and
grammatical errors remain.)  If he is asking for endorsement from the Fedora
Project then I wonder why he posted to this public list.

3.  "unmistakeable fedora charm"?  Trying to flatter us?

For Frank Cox....the originating IP for the OP is and indeed
it is located in Ireland.  The message was sent at 2AM GMT.  One could
suggest the grammar was impaired by Guinness?  :-)
