I would like to help packaging. Actually, I would like to package a
couple of small programmes I think they would be useful in Fedora. But
I'm honestly lost, I don't even know how to start.
Maybe if someone helps me, I can go through this and write an article
about the process, what is needed, advises, etc.
If such an article is of any help.
My 2 cents.

Just wanted to share here, as many here may have faced similar issues
while grooming new contributors.
It'll help if you could share anyways you've found to keep new
contributors from being scared.
