Review Swap - Netatalk an AFP server

One of the nice things about Netatalk is that it fully emulates an Apple Time Machine Volume. Mac clients don't know the difference. This is in contrast to emulating a time machine volume through NFS. Using NFS for time machine backups does not have quite the same user experience. That might not matter for the technical savy, but it does matter for my wife. Using Netatalk was the only solution I found that was truly maintenance free. My wife can take her Mac Air and her MacBook Pro to foreign wifi networks, and when she comes back, time machine will pick right back up where it left off.

Review Swap - netatalk and dymo-cups-drivers

I've got a couple of review requests in need of a reviewer:

<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1659709" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1659709">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1659709</a>

<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1658199" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1658199">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1658199</a>

These are pretty straightforward. Nothing terribly complicated. I would be glad to review someone else's review request(s) to return the favor. I could certainly use the practice.

New ZoneMinder packages - except el7

FYI, new ZoneMinder packages representing the 1.32.3 release are building now for Fedora branches.
I will push a new package for el7 branch after Antonio completes his work with new ffmpeg & x264.

Stalled Review Request - Close it and create new?

Recently I began to create a review request for netatalk, when I noticed there already was an open review request:
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1520024" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1520024">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1520024</a>

May 7th was the last activity by anyone other than myself. On 11/28 I offered assistance to help move the review along, but I have not received an answer.

In the interested of getting this review completed, am I in my right to close this request and create a new one, or is there better course of action?

Review Swap - perl-IO-Socket-Multicast

Greetings,
Do you have a package that needs are reviewer? Would you be willing to do a review swap?

I'm looking to have the following perl module reviewed:
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1417316" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1417316">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1417316</a>

There isn't much to this module so the review should be pretty straightforward.

While I do have prior packaging experience, I'm still fairly new to Fedora, and have not done a review yet.
However, I'm looking forward to learning so I can contribute back to the community.

Koji build - unexpected keyword argument 'canfail'

BACKGROUND
I am attempting to build perl-Sort-Key-1.32-4.el6.src.rpm for inclusion into epel6. This is a rebuild of the f20 branch.

Self Introduction: Andrew Bauer

Greetings fellow Fedora enthusiasts,

I'm just getting started and thought I'd introduce myself.

I am part of the upstream ZoneMinder project (<a href="https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder" title="https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder">https://github.com/ZoneMinder/ZoneMinder</a>), and I also maintain zmrepo.zoneminder.com, as a single source to install the ZoneMinder rpm and its somewhat hard-to-find perl dependencies.

As I learn Fedora/EPEL policies and procedures, I plan to submit package requests for the dependencies currently missing from either Fedora or EPEL.
