I have been following EPEL for a while, but am yet to become a
maintainer of anything. I would suggest submitting patches for the
package via bugzilla which makes it easier for the current maintainers
to implement the changes you want/need specifically. Any feedback you
provide be it for changes, or verification of testing you've done
makes you more than 'just a helper' and is appreciated by everyone.
I would suggest setting up an account via the FAS (Fedora Account
System). This allows you to gain access to certain things like Fedora
Hosted Trac pages, etc allowing you to contribute to any of the
applications written/maintained by Fedora.

I've been using a few minor packages from EPEL (like clamav) for a
while. Now I am about to start using a package that we rely heavily
(Sun gridengine) so I would like to help maintain the EPEL gridengine
package to keep it current. I've read through most of the Fedora
maintainer documentation. One of the steps was to add a package to
bugzilla for review. What if you do not have a package? Can I be
a helper" without being an owner of any packages? Specifically I
like to help get the current gridengine 6.2u2_1 into the koji EPEL
system (assuming that this is OK with the current owner) and fix the
couple build problems I ran into locally.
I couldn't find an answer in the fedora project wiki. Should I just
start the process of getting an account for koji and see what happens?
Any other pointers?

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense. I tried it. Only tinfoil works.
