First thing I tried was asking Martin the same thing. He told me that it did not depend on
him, and that I'd have to go though the process of becoming a maintainer.
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.

Dumb question. What are you trying to achieve with that bugzilla? Are
you just trying to become a developer with commit access to the autotest
package? Or something bigger like a generic package maintainer?
The above bugzilla seems to imply the latter hence all the pushback. The
former should be easier as all it needs is approval from Martin (though I
requested approval a month ago and have heard nothing).
