First thing I tried was asking Martin the same thing. He told me that it did not depend

So talking with fedora folks, all you have to do is request commit acls
for project autotest-framework. Martin is the owner, so he has the power
to approve/reject that request.
Having walked all those miles, even if becoming a general package maintainer wasn't
really necessary, I think it's the one to go because we do have other packages (such
as python-arc itself) that we want to have in Fedora.
As for python-arc, it should be a new package, so all it has to be is
approved and then you can do whatever you want with it. I can't imagine
_every_ Fedora maintainer having to get the 'provenpackager' status.
I know I didn't, I just got sponsered by a Red Hat person to get into the
Fedora database. After that a few mouse clicks is all that is needed to
allow me to commit to packages.
We should ping Martin again to see what the hold up is.
