That's great!
We would had more developers.

One question
If we could merge trivial PR in github, do we had sync mechanism for fedorahosted
and github?

see decription of Rich's libguestfs on github:
library and tools for accessing and modifying virtual machine disk images. 
See the website for how to file a bug or contact us. 
But we should give it a try.

Hope this will not bring much extra work to Cole :)
