Self introduction: Barry Scott

I have become the new maintainer for the pysvn package on Fedora.

I am the upstream developer for a number of projects including:
* pysvn - <a href="" title=""></a>
* pycxx - <a href="" title=""></a>
* Barry's Emacs - <a href="" title=""></a>
* SCM workbench - <a href="" title=""></a>

These days I tend to develop in python and C++ using PyQt for GUI needs.
The above projects work on Unix, macOS and Windows.

I have been using Fedora since FC4 and maybe before,
too long ago to remember.

I would also like to volunteer to be a co-maintainer of

My first task will be to update pysvn to its 1.9.9 release
but that requires pycxx to be updated to its 7.1.2 release
to pick up a needed fix.

I have a review up for the changes to python-pycxx at

Hi and welcome.

I am sorry but you can't became fedora maintainer with already existing package.
You should suggest new package for that.

Also you can send Pull Requests or talk with python-pycxx maintainer directly.
